    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (Boston, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had an HR screening then an on site 1.5 hour interview with three different people. Someone currently serving in the role I was applying for, the manager I would report to and then the GM. The whole process was very quick and thorough. All of the interviewers were very nice and seemed more interested in getting to know me as a person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Many companies nowadays string candidates along for weeks or even months. HR at Lyft was excellent to work with- prompt responses and a clear timeline made the process extremely pleasant. I had two phone interviews- one initial screening with HR and one with a current Community Associate at another office. The process concluded with a 1-on-1 in-person interview.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lyft.

    Interview

    After applying online I received a call from a recruiter who was very nice and easy to talk to. We spoke for 20 minutes and then she set up another phone interview with the operations manager a few days later. I spoke with him for 20-30 minutes and it was the same friendly vibe. I then went into the office and met with four local team members. It wasn't like the normal interview - it was more like chatting with friends. I received a call the day after from the recruiter telling me I got the job. The whole interview process took about a week.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fast and well-organized. A recruiter reached out to me to schedule a phone screen the day after I applied. The questions the recruiter asked weren't atypical for this first stage, but this phone screen definitely felt lighter and more conversational than other phone screens I've had in the past. After the initial phone screen, I then spoke to the operations manager in the New York office, which is where I was applying to work. The manager gave me a good sense of the role and the team dynamic in the office, which was great. I was then invited in to meet with the operations manager and three other members of the team, two of which were already employed as community associates. I felt there was a lot of chemistry among myself and the rest of the team, and I was offered the position the next day.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lyft (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on a Saturday, received an email for a phone interview on Monday. I spoke to the recruiter on Monday, who was very pleasant. Then I scheduled a phone screen with the manager of the team for the next day. After the phone screen, I went in for an in-person interview. The in-person interview was composed of four different interviews, each one ran for about 30 minutes. Everyone that I met with was really great, it felt more like a conversation to know who I was. I really enjoyed meeting them.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lyft in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and the recruiter reached out to me via email. First, I had an initial phone screen and then I had a second phone interview with one of the Operations Lead. The third round was an in-person interview with 4 people, 30 mins each person. Overall, very smooth process. Advice: be authentic and honest.
