    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft in June 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process at Lyft was very engaging and pleasant. Overall, the process took around 4 weeks. Throughout this process, I felt supported and became more excited for the opportunity to be part of the People Partner team. Everyone I met was so friendly, smart and professional. You can tell that they collaborate well, and support each other and truly care about their client-groups. Although, I did not receive an offer, I really appreciate the time and thoughtfulness put into the interview process. I specifically want to call out the amazing Recruiter, Heather. She was so welcoming, responsive, and a true professional during this time.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The process was pretty straightforward, though they did hit you with a case study question in the first round, which was unexpected and caught me off guard. Otherwise, the rest of the questions were pretty standard behavioral type interview questions.

    Android Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft in May 2020.

    Interview

    Did their phone interview and onsite. The phone interview was a series of tasks within an Android app, implementing incremental features.

    The virtual onsite (for covid-19 times) involved a couple of non-technical interviews, plus a 2.5h session where you implement an app, with minimal oversight from the interviewer. The interviewer actually leaves the chat and lets you work alone.

    I assume that I failed the technical aspect of the onsite because they never contacted me again after the interviews ended. It's been a month and I've since accepted an offer from a different company.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lyft.

    Interview

    Applied Online. I talked with a recruiter. Scheduled phone screen. The interviewer was hardly interested in knowing anything about me. It was the worst experience. I really had high hopes from the company and I was really disappointed that I spent one hr interviewing with someone who just wants to hear what he has in mind.
