Do Uber drivers go through a background check process?
Uber states that
This includes a three-step criminal background screening for the U.S. — with county, federal and multi-state checks that go back as far as the law allows [Uber website linked to above]
It does when you sign up I believe. That same video is available on their website as well.. I doubt they provide training on customer service as that depends on the driver, How they behave with the customer. Everyone knows that uber or lyft take the rating seriously (I guess at least for drivers) so before doing anything wrong or misbehaving with customers/drivers one would think twice. Though in past there has many cases of misbehaving by a customer and driver. So customer service really depends on one's nature. Hope this helps.
How long does an average Uber driver wait between fares?
In busy cities like SF and most of the Bay Area during peak times such as Friday and Saturday nights: 0 seconds. A driver will immediately get a pick up request as soon as he goes back online after completing a trip. This goes on the whole shift. He or she has to turn the phone off in order to take a break or go use the restroom.
Good thing you asked because a lot of riders have this dumb assumption that they are the only passengers in the whole town and the drivers have nothing to do after they drop off that they can wait and sit in the parking lot of the restaurant or house and give the passengers a ride back home when they're done eating dinner.
With that said, I estimate the ratio between riders and drivers is at least 10 to 1 and during peak times it can jump to 100 rider request for every 1 driver. So consider yourself lucky when you get picked up by an UberX driver.
I'm Uber Black in Boston. On a slow shift (weekdays mid-day) I might have over an hour. When it's hopping, less than five minutes. I imagine the UberX is different and varies a lot by city, though.
