Interview

Four rounds. All the lawyers were very impressive. Interviewed with the people who report to the position, which I thought was a good idea. The recruiter keeps you updated as you progress through the process and is very approachable.

Interview

Total 7 interviews sessions including a week preparation of presentation deck, which is quiet open ended And not clearly communicated by HR on delivery timelines. The HR literally ghosted once the feedback is asked over an automated response comes into your inbox.

It was not that hard of an interview process at all. The coding questions were pretty standard, I think mine had to do with a stack/ implementing a stack. Definitely if you are used to making basic data structures in python, you will be fine.

Your background check is your interview. They do not interview anyone because your background speaks for itself. They have ways of finding out about your background even if it was expunge from your record.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft in Jul 2022

Interview

Contacted by a recruiter. Had a recruiting call, followed by a technical screener. Scheduling was prompt. However, my technical interviewer was often condescending and negative, which sometimes made it difficult to focus on the questions.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Lyft in Jul 2022

Interview

May 2022 - invited to interview by a recruiter, but was then told that they are going to pause hiring and will get back to me in 3-4 weeks with an update Late July 2022 - invited to interview again. I set up time to speak with the recruiter and my meeting with her was canceled while I was on the google meet waiting for her to join. I then received an email letting me know that I was no longer in consideration for the role. Truly shocked by how rude and inconsiderate the entire process was. I scheduled my day around my call with the recruiter only to be left waiting on the phone and quickly rejected. This company really does not care about their candidates.
