I interviewed at Lyft

Interview

Received an email asking for a phone screen. Filled out a form indicating times available for a call. I marked three distinct times. A recruiter responded immediately indicating one did not work for here (she did not specify which). We eventually settled on a time on a late Friday afternoon. The call was pleasant enough. Received an automated denial two days later (on a Sunday afternoon of a three-day weekend).

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft in Sep 2021

Interview

Recruiting phone screen followed by 2 virtual onsite interviews followed again by 2 further onsite interviews. Questions similar to what you can google, they use the same style as Uber and Facebook. Process overall was smooth, their recruiting is doing a decent job (compared to almost all other companies). Most interviewers were pleasant to talk to and personable with the exception of a woman who first showed up 5 minutes late without apologizing even with a single word and then went on to talk about how there are too many ex-Amazon white males (i.e. my exact) profile at Lyft already. Highly unprofessional.

I engaged on call with recruiter for 20 minutes. We talked about my experience. I got rejected due to not enough experience, which they could not bear to do without talking to me.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lyft in Aug 2021

Interview

THE WORST INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE I’VE EVER HAD!!!!! Had a call with recruiter in August 2021. Two days later the technical screening interview was scheduled. The first part of the interview interviewer showed total disrespect by yawning every other minute, as well as interrupting by showing his dominance. During the actual coding challenge he was totally ignoring my questions, looked like he was minding his own business, multiple times I had to ask him whether he was there, however the only thing I heard was typing. Although the tech challenge wasn’t easy, I mostly felt no interest in hiring me as a software engineer, which gives 0 motivation to an interviewee. If that is the representation of the culture in Lyft I’m not interested to be a part of it regardless of the decision. Despite the fact that recruiter offered another chance (which I totally appreciate) I had 0 interest in moving forward. And I hope my feedback will help other candidates.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (San Francisco, CA) in Aug 2021

Interview

Most unprofessional and rude experience I have had in a long time. Hiring manager seemed angry and irritated the entire time. The recruiter had poor communication. I am surprised that a company this large has such an awful interview process.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lyft (Seattle, WA) in Jul 2021

Interview

The interviews were remote which is understandable during the pandemic. However the interviewer, who would have been the direct manager showed up late, wearing a tank top and was not engaging at all. Very unprofessional.

Interview Questions
  • Situation based questions to dig into the ability to perform the duties of the position.
