    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Probably the worst phone screen I've ever been through. Recruiter sounded extremely bored and completely unexcited about Lyft. I was also very confused about their "entry-level" Data Analyst position, which sounds more like a highly technical Data Scientist position. Recruiter was also a bit condescending towards my background and how I may not be a good fit.

    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.

Recruiter was also a bit condescending towards my background and how it may not be a good fit.

    Application

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

    • I don't want to give away the take-home question. Unsurprisingly, it deals with Lyft data.   1 Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lyft in April 2017.

    Interview

    An initial phone screen, a technical interview and a take home assignment. The next step would have been an onsite presentation and interview. Interviews were straight forward, quick and very focused on business strategy.

    Interview

    The job listing stated it was for an entry level position but it seems like they were expecting someone with a PhD in machine learning to answer some of these questions. Just had one interview because obviously was not qualified for position

    First Interview with a Data Analyst, data challenge then a flyout to present your challenge and 4 interviews. Was rejected two days after onsite. (Failed SQL because I wasn't too familiar with window functions)

    Interview

    First, I was asked to make a self-introduction. Interviewer didn't ask more about my resume or background. Then I was asked to do a case Study. In the process, interviewer asked more questions corresponding to your answers.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (San Francisco, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    One screening with HR then a case study with a data analyst; got an assignment to do and did not pass; there was no clear direction for the assignment. I wish there were clear questions that I needed to answer; I guess they were looking to see the candidate's creativity and thinking process
