Interview

The take-home assignment is really time-consuming and the instruction is not very clear. When presenting findings, the interviewee always interrupts and ask questions and as a result, I could not get to the key findings.

Took a Lyft this morning and the driver was left foot breaking. How common is it to drive a manual with both feet?

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (New York, NY) in Jul 2019

An internal recruiter at Lyft reached out to me on LinkedIn. I had an interview with him, followed by an Excel-based operations exam. Then I had a take-home analysis and presentation with the head of the department I'd work for.

Interview Questions
  • Given 90 days of ride data, how would you project the lifetime of a driver? Lifetime value? Prepare a presentation.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Lyft (San Francisco, CA) in Dec 2018

Interview

Was asked to explain some challenges of two sided marketplaces, and suggestions on how to retain drivers. They weren't extremely technical questions, and quite vague, however I was asked to do some kind of back of the envelope calculation to determine $ values.

Interview Questions
  • Is it more important to incentivize drivers to stay or riders to sign up?

I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (San Francisco, CA) in Apr 2018

Interview

Applied through referral. Did recruiter call. Did technical phone call. Received take-home. I understood the problem clearly and a very thorough job with take-home. Was not moved to final stage. No feedback. Recommendation to Lyft: If an applicant demonstrates serious engagement with your takehome assignment -- for example, evidenced through their thoroughness of their submitted materials -- provide a reasonable amount of feedback to the candidate even if you decide to decline them. This is arguably a reasonable thing to do given you ask candidates to spend ~11-20 hours on the takehome assignment, and given the Lyft's PR image is that it's a company that 'does the right thing' and is kind (the PR perception is that Lyft treats its drivers better than Uber).

Interview Questions
  • I don't want to give away the take-home question. Unsurprisingly, it deals with Lyft data.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Lyft

Interview

Probably the worst phone screen I've been through. Recruiter sounded very bored and completely unexcited about Lyft, as if they were reading off of a script. I was confused about Lyft's "entry-level" Data Analyst position, which sounds much more like a highly technical Data Scientist position. Recruiter was also a bit condescending towards my background and how it may not be a good fit.
