The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (San Francisco, CA)

Interview

Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn and after discussions I was setup for a phone interview using coderpad. The phone interview had 1 each of SQL and python questions which I managed to solve with a few hiccups. I was then setup for onsite which had 5 rounds and lunch with a team member. Onsite 1st round - General discussion about my profile and started off with leetcode problem. I partially finished but could complete since ran out of time. Lunch time - Waited for the team member who was supposed to take me for lunch but he never turned up and I missed the lunch. 2nd round - SQL coding on MacBook with MySQL session. The interviewer was busy with Facebook and didn't know or answer any of my clarifications. All 3 queries went unanswered since I didn't get the clarifications and was not sure what to expect. 3rd round - Came in and introduced himself and started with the behavioural round and asked about previous work experience. 4th round - System design round, was asked to design a distributed system with failover considered. 5th round - Lyft use case for designing a dimension model. Overall less than average onsite interview and as expected didn't get the offer.

Onsite wasn't bad. Everyone was pretty nice. Each of the interviewers was nice. The coding problem was very interesting and "Life-Like". Very different from other companies. However, after the interview, no one ever contacted me. After more than 2 weeks, I messaged the on-site recruiter. They scheduled a phone call and then never called... I accepted a job else where and withdrew my candidacy. Found it quite unprofessional to leave a candidate in the dark after an interview and I think it shows some insight into the state of the company.

Interview

Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. Had an initial interview, went on to interview with the regional manager and then the VP of the East who, based on her LinkedIn I have no idea how she got the position of VP of the East considering she's never stayed loyal to a job for over 2 years and has tons of weird, sporadic experience and a failed e-commerce business. She asked me questions I'm pretty sure she either googled or learned in b-school because no one says "what does operational excellence mean to you?" who actually has operations experience.

From what I remember it was a very easy process. The only part which was more involved was driving to the Lyft to get your car checked since it wasn't as close as I would have liked. Overall, it was a simple and fun process. Mostly done through apps and technology.

Interview Questions
  • Most of the process of getting ready to start driving for Lyft was handled through their app.

Great interview process, although timing was bad since it started right before the holidays and then the company went through layoffs. Highly communicative throughout the process. Phone screen, phone interview, then onsite interview and presentation with four team members, including the hiring manager.
