Hiring the best hand to run a business is important to ensure that work is done effectively. This situation is directly applicable to hiring drivers for your UberBLACK fleet. The most successful Uber fleet owner is definitely not the one who provides the best vehicles but the one who gets the best drivers to drive the vehicles. Getting a good driver could be easy if you follow the few steps discussed below:
- Place Your Ad
The first step is to put out your offer to the public. You can do this by placing adverts on a website. Click this link to find 10 free sites to place your ads. You can also get some fliers and stickers printed for distribution. When you have gathered enough job applications from interested UberBLACK drivers, move on to number step 2.
- Contact Your Applicants with A Date for a Soft Interview
It is in your best interest to interview people to consider if they are good enough to place your vehicle in their hands. Do not leave this solely to Uber. However, this shouldn’t be a shirt and tie kind of interview – it’s just a soft examination to gauge their personality. An UberBLACK driver’s personality is what accounts for how good a driver’s service turns out. In a business space where customer service is very important, it is necessary to take your time and pay very close attention to their actions and reactions during this meeting/interview. After you have done this for all applicants, you should go on to short-list your favorites.
- Conduct a Background Check
It is assumed that while they register, these applicants must have forwarded some documents to confirm their identity. You’d have to take these documents and run background checks on them. There are rules in different places guiding how far you can dig about a person. Within the scope of the law, see what you can find on their criminal and driving record.
- Re-invite Successful Candidates for Driving Test
After conducting your checks and short-listing your top candidates, you can then contact the successful drivers. Most likely, you should give them different dates. This second meeting is going to involve you getting them behind the wheel. Hand over the car keys and pay attention to what they do and how they do it. From here you can go on to select the people you find most suitable based on their driving skills.
- Give Them a Briefing
UberBLACK service orientation should be given to drivers. They need to understand your vision and the way you intend to run your business. Then you also discuss payment information and how it accrues.
These steps would help ensure that the hands you have on deck are the best ones thereby securing your peace of mind. With the above applied steps, you are sure that whatever Uber would be doing is just a crosscheck.
