Have you ever been in a car accident before?
Professional Answers Preview
If you've never been in an accident before, then that's great! If you have, then be honest about it. The interviewer's going to check your driving record and lying about it might cost you the job. Regardless if it was your fault or not, talk to the interviewer about the accident, what caused it, and the measures you take to avoid another incident like that. To end it on a positive note, tell the interviewer that the accident has made you a more careful, attentive, and responsible driver.

My greatest strength is my confidence, it would help me as a taxi driver because people often sense my confidence and thus trust me and have faith in my abilities to do a task I have committed to. I am often approached by people in cities I am new to and get asked for directions - this has happened in many places: Toronto, Paris, Rome, and New Orleans. I think people approach me because I give off an air of confidence while still looking friendly and approachable. My confidence has also served me well while travelling in strange places, I have never been robbed or assaulted in my life despite walking alone in some less than safe places such as in large cities at night, and also travelling alone in foreign countries: Italy, Benin (West Africa), and the United Kingdom.

Question 2 of 30
How do you practice safety on the job?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Using safety equipment at all times.
2.
Do a walk around vehicle, make sure its clean.
3.
I follow all the precaution rules.
4.
Making sure the vehicle is in good condition, all passengers in the vehicle have put on safety belts, following traffic rules and making sure the vehicle is safe when on the move or when it is parked.
5.
Drive smoothly and calamly.
6.
On the job it is essential to wear seat belts, to not become distracted with things such as; loud music, taking one's eyes off of the road. It is also extremely important to drive defensively--that is to watch everything that is going on around me as we can never predict what another driver is going to do. I have had drivers pull out in front of me without looking and if I were not paying proper attention--I could have slammed into that individual.
7.
By wearing seat belts, going on moderate speeds.
8.
To take seat ballet and other necessary instruments about taxi.
9.
Always using seat belt, focus.
10.
I practice safety by performing a complete vehicle check before driving: check windshield wash, oil level and gasoline - top up as necessary. Perform a complete walk around of vehicle before driving: ensure all windows are clear of ice, snow or dirt; check tires are at the appropriate pressure (35psi); check windshield wipers for any damage. After entering the vehicle check that all mirrors are properly set up for my height and seat position, make sure all lights are working correctly. As a taxi driver I would also check that the car radio and meter are working correctly. I would also make sure the car is clean inside and clear of any materials that could pose a risk to my safety (such as discarded materials that could be used as weapons) or to my passengers safety or comfort. Aside from road safety, I would also practice driver safety by making sure to always keep exterior doors locked while parked, keeping windows up while parked, making sure passengers avoid sitting in the front seat or directly behind me if possible, by making eye contact with passengers at the start of journey to create a human link to them to reduce the likelihood of violence. I would also practice safety by maintaining a calm and polite demeanor at all times, practicing assertive people skills by managing conversations with passengers, but keeping things polite and courteous at the same time. I would also practice safety by not handling large amounts of cash in front of customers, and by being wary of customer body language.
11.
By giving full attension on job.

With irate customers in the past it was always important for me to not argue and get their dander up. If they were unsatisfied with a product or the time it took to get it out there it is important to remain calm and explain things clearly so as to calm them down as well. When customers didn't like their machine we would often offer to exchange it for a similar model and allow them to try it out initially to make sure it works for them. We might also try a different machine that would be more appropriate to their needs and allow them to try that out as well. If they should be dissatisfied with the speed of our service it is important to apologize and explain the reasons why--if we might be down an employee, or if we were swamped on a given day. There may be times, if they are a loyal customer, when we could offer a discount on their next service call so they continue to have faith that we care about their needs.

About Taxi Drivers

December 23rd, 2014

Taxi and limousine services make it easy for customers to get around when driving their own cars or using public transportation is inconvenient. Taxi drivers and chauffeurs take passengers to and from their homes, workplaces, and recreational pursuits, such as dining, entertainment, and shopping, and to and from business-related events. These professional drivers help both residents and out-of-town guests get around a city or urban area. In addition to regular point-to-point services, some drivers offer sight-seeing services around their cities.
