Back of house: dishwasher, fry cook, grill cook, line cook, prep cook

General labor: event setup/teardown and any work not requiring previous experience or specific skills
You will be asked to choose an employer. The choices currently are TalentBurst and TrueBlue. You can learn more about those choices by visiting their websites.
After you complete a shift, Uber Works will send your recorded shift hours to your chosen employer. Your chosen employer will then calculate your take-home pay based on information in your employment paperwork, including withholdings, and other required deductions and applicable taxes. Unless the business raises a dispute about the hours you worked, you’ll be paid by your employer within a few days of your completed shift. You can choose from 2 payment methods during onboarding: direct deposit or pay card.
Direct deposit: When setting up your account with your employer, you’ll be prompted to provide your bank name, routing number, and account number. Assuming no dispute to your hours or other issues, your payments will be deposited directly into your bank account within 2 business days of your shift completion. Depending on your bank’s processing times, you may have to wait another 24 to 36 hours to access your money.
Pay card: You should be given a pay card if you complete your onboarding in person at our Uber Works office. If you didn’t receive one or if you didn’t onboard in person, you can pick one up at the Uber Works office. You can also contact email@example.com to have a card mailed to you. The card will be activated once funds are successfully deposited into your account. Your shift payments will be deposited to the pay card within 2 business days of your shift completion, assuming no disputes to your hours or other issues.
If you’re having payment issues or would like to update your payout information, please contact Support by text at 312-548-9264 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are the top 4 tips from some of our most successful workers:
You may have been deactivated because you didn’t follow Uber Works’ attendance policy or other sections of the User Guidelines.
Under the attendance policy, workers who accrue 6 marks within a rolling 30-day period will lose access to the Uber Works platform for 7 days. Workers who accrue 10 marks within a rolling 30-day period will permanently lose access to the Uber Works platform. Please note that 2 no-call, no-shows (not showing up for a shift at all and not informing Uber Works) within a rolling 12-month period will also result in permanent loss of access to the Uber Works platform.
Attendance marks are given as follows:
When you accumulate the amount of points or actions that result in a deactivation, we’ll send you an email with a record of your attendance marks and the status of your account.
You may also be deactivated for violating the law; consuming drugs or alcohol or carrying firearms during your shift or while on the app; violating the Uber Works standards on physical contact, sexual assault and misconduct, threatening and rude behavior, discrimination, and reliability; fraud; or account sharing.
Potential workers are vetted before they can work a shift. They must undergo a background check and complete an I-9 form as well as complete other onboarding employment forms. In specialized roles, workers are given a skills assessment test and asked to submit relevant certification.
If a worker gets injured and it’s an emergency, please call 911 immediately. If it’s not a life-threatening emergency, ask the worker to notify email@example.com and their designated Employer of Record.
Businesses may cancel a shift 24 hours in advance without penalty. If you cancel within 24 hours, cancellation fees will apply.
