I interviewed at Postmates

Interview

Made me go through 5 rounds of interviews on 3 different days, some were cool, many were arrogant and condescending. Took forever to get back to me. Glad they passed in the end, have heard only bad things and most people who were cool actually left.

Interview

Relatively straightforward. Call with the hiring manager, team lead, and CMO. Everyone I spoke with was super delightful, intelligent, and genuine. The process was a bit long due to the availabilities of the management team but the HR did an amazing job keeping me updated. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

I applied online. I interviewed at Postmates

Interview

I was contacted after applying online for the internship role, I successfully completed the online coding challenge, and was asked to do a behavioral online assessment. Upon completion, I was asked to schedule an interview time. I replied with a time slot that worked with me, and mentioned that I was flexible. Then I did not get any replies for 2 weeks. I had asked about a status update, but then was ghosted by the employer. After three weeks of no reply, I got an email saying that all the positions were filled for the coming season, so they decided to interview me for a different year. I was again asked to schedule a time, and I responded with a time that worked with me. Again, I had no emails back for 2 weeks, then they sent me a rejection email without having interviewed me. I was left feeling confused to what happened, and the whole ghosting situation was stressful. Definitely did not feel respected.

Interview Questions
  • Online coding assessment, followed by an online game that measures your behavior, then they ghosted me

I applied online. I interviewed at Postmates

Interview

It starts with a take-home technical challenge. Giving you a CSV of data related to the product analyst position, you need to clean it up and deliver insights. I enjoyed how it was very similar to something you would encounter in the actual role. You then move on to an in-person interview where you discuss the take-home and do a Postgres SQL quiz in code-signal. No gotcha questions here, you just discuss the take home. The SQL questions are related to the position and involve knowledge of (WHERE and GROUP BY and time series comparison, Questions like, get the total amount for x by y during z timeframe.) You then move on to the final interview. It is 4 or 5 hours and 4 or 5 individual interviews with different people. The recruiter will give you info on what to expect beforehand. There is a case study, SQL challenge (code signal), and one where you look at a chart with no axis and tell a story about it. The SQL questions are pretty difficult in my opinion. Make sure you know things about postmates app you would want to change. Make sure you know postgres SQL for time-series related questions. Make sure you ask questions about the vague charts they show before you start talking. Overall the interviews were good. It took an extremely long time, 4 months. And they ghosted me after the final interview after telling me they would get back to me with a yes or no. So I found that quite unprofessional. Also, the first take-home is probably 100% a Python or R challenge yet most of the people there say they use SQL 90% of the time and that some dont even know Python. Exact SQL questions for first-round interview can be found in glassdoor.

Interview Questions
  • SQL questions: I think 3 per interview, 2 simple and 1 hard. Group bys, order bys, for time periods. Growth questions and time comparisons. (have those down), generally joining two or three tables, but the join ids are simple, nothing crazy. Chart question: Look at this axis less chart and tell me what it means in relation to the postmates business.
