Visitor: The situation I find myself in, unemployable as an Uber driver, is absolutely absurd. I’m a respected husband and father with an ambitious, successful resume and excellent credit score. I’ve never had a problem finding employment or traveling. In short, I’m a decent (some say great) human being who wants to share his brand new Tesla with as many people as possible.
This accident on my record occurred +/- 30 years ago. I will not sit around for 10 months for Uber to allow me to drive for them. So their going to lose an amazing driver because of an overly strict recruitment policy. That seems short sighted for a progressive company.
I’ve gathered additional information from Uber and would like to clear my name with them, but also take a run at getting an exception to their policy of not hiring until a full pardon is granted. You mentioned they will not accept a support letter. I would like to change this and change is what I do for a living.
Pardons Canada: All ride share programs including Lyft and Uber will not hire drivers with an unclear criminal record. So if you have a criminal conviction, even if it is decades old, you will require a pardon which will effectively remove the offence from the RCMP or CPIC record. Once your pardon is granted you will be safe to get a job with Uber.
