Data Analyst Interview

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 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.

    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lyft.

    Interview

    First a phone interview, then another phone interview, then a take home project, then an on-site with lots of people. Phone interviews were about your background and work experience. Take home assignment was analysis of a toy dataset. On-site interviews were a mix of case studies and probability puzzles.

    Interview Questions

    • several questions related to their business that they think about day in and day out that they expected me to just be able to rattle off in 5 min in front off a white board   Answer Question
    • fairly complex probability puzzles too detailed to give here   Answer Question
    • sampling with replacement   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Phone call with HR, followed by phone call with manager. I then had an assignment followed by an on-site. Although the process is fairly long, you get to meet a lot of people from different teams which makes the experience interesting.

    The interview process was very fast. For each step, I had feedback on the next day at the latest. I think it reflects very well the company culture, everyone was very open and friendly!

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lyft.

    Interview

    I've heard great things about Lyft's data-driven culture and the smart people who work there, but lost interest after a phone screen with a Data Analyst. The person seemed bored and discontent with the job, and basically read off a script for the interview. It felt like I was talking to an automated voice response system.

    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
