I applied online. I interviewed at Lyft in Mar 2021

Interview

The process contains 4 parts: one short HR call; one 1-hr technical phone screen. The technical questions are not very technical. It's more like a consulting type of interview. a 24-hr project; and onsite. Rarely I feel so negatively about a company during the interview stage. The take home project takes so much time. They say 5-6 hrs... sure... I'd say unless you are desperately looking for a job, it's not worth it. What upsets me so much during the process is that they did not say I would need to use my own computational resource beforehand. I assumed I would at least be given some temporary access to some cloud service. No nothing. So I bought a $10 temporary cloud service on the day of the project. Lyft refused to reimburse me for this expensive. I found this absolutely unacceptable. This makes me feel the company is taking advantage of interviewees to solve their problems. Overall very bad impression.

Interview Questions
  • How do you explain p value to someone who's not technical?

My interviewer showed up late and was nonchalant about this. The interview itself was framed as casual, but came off as impromptu and disrespectful. I would have expected more from such a large company.

There were two coding interviews, one after another, with 15 minutes in between. They asked for fairly simple algorithms and data structures but of course, you needed to optimize those by time and memory.

Interview Questions
  • Create a Binary Heap data structure and delete/add a node. Merge two sorted arrays.

I applied through other source. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Lyft

Interview

They gave me some material to study related to systems, algorithms, and data structures one week prior to the interview. I studied all these concepts expecting to be solving an algorithms problem in the interview but went another direction and had to implement a complex component with plain javascript and HTML

Virtual screen then technical interview. The description of the tech interview was vastly different than what it actually was. Said they wanted to test understanding of fitting but didn't ask about regression or classification really.
