Interview

Take-home challenge, zoom interviews. Challenge took a week to complete and was very reasonable in length. Communication was great throughout the entire process. Zoom interviews are a bit short but they immediately get right to the point. The interviewers were all friendly.

Interview

Applied online, recruiter reached out 5 days later to schedule phone screen via email, submitted availability through a Greenhouse calendar system, scheduled a phone screen for 1 week later. Phone screen was about 20-25 minutes, recruiter seemed nice/casual. He explained the role to me, asked me standard interview questions - very open ended conversation. Got a generic rejection email 2 days later

Interview Questions
  • Some permutation of "tell me about yourself" and "why are you qualified/interested in the role". One or two follow up questions about experience on specific duties of the role

Interview

It was a phone interview with a recruiter. In most cases, I didn't have a problem with this phase of the interview as it's not technical. But it happened that I didn't pass. The recruiter was late 10 minutes (I didn't have this problem with most of the companies). Ok, let's say that it can happen. Problem is that he cut the interview to 20 minutes which is a short time period for representing myself and learning about the company. He was very quiet and he didn't have the right questions. He asked me if I know RXJava, Dagger, Retrofit, and Glide and a little bit about my career. I was expecting questions from which they can learn about me and my career in detail. When we finished the call I was 100% sure that I will get a negative answer from them. It wasn't a gut feeling, I felt that from his behavior during the interview, so I asked him if he can share the right away the information, but he insists that he needs to check with someone and then they will come back. The biggest problem is if I just didn't have luck with the recruiter. Maybe others are ok, but how can I re-run the interview process? Really disappointed that I didn't have a chance to show my Android skills.

Interview Questions
  • Did you use RXJava, Dagger, Retrofit, Glide? What is your past experience?

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Lyft (South San Francisco, CA) in Oct 2020

Interview

The interviewee just started a list of all questions, with the minimum intro as "I am a data scientist at Lyft and I am going to take your interview divided into three sections, a case study of a business plan, probability, and statistics, and finally a data insight of a hypothetical problem. So, let's get started". The case study problems were not so well versed, giving me hard time understanding them. However, he was patient to answer any clarifications. The first two parts went well as he confirmed that I answered them correctly. The last part was a bit difficult as it was a mix of Lyft A/B testing experimentation study and probability. Again questions were not clear and I had a hard time reading his mind. My answers were out of the box as a possible strategy, but he wanted to hear a solution that was written on his answer sheet. The interview ended with a simple question as to describe the p-value. As time was over, he just said bye very impatiently as he has to take another interview. I received a rejection in less than 24 hrs. I worked very hard for this interview prep, and I am quite disappointed that I even didn't get any feedback.

Interview Questions
  • Drivers acquisition from last year has dropped to 7%, what could be the reason?
  • There is a demand in an area, but riders are not taking rides. Why?
  • What is a p-value? Explain it.

HR is really unprofessional and unorganized. She is not very helpful and responsive. But the whole interview questions are super easy and the software engineers that conducted the interviews are nice.
