    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Uber (San Francisco, CA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    a phone call from recruiter. Then, a phone call from hiring manager and a take-home assignment. The recruiter forgot to send me the assignment on the pre-scheduled day. Then, i changed my schedule to work on the take-home assignment (I have full-time job). After I sent the assignment to them, there is no feedback. Then, 20 days later i sent an email to ask for assignment result, and recruiter said the role was filled. Very disappointed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Uber (San Francisco, CA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    It was a 1 hour technical challenge. That's it. They used HackerRank which was hard to use for both parties but we figured it out. The interviewer did not sound like he had a lot of relevant experience to be interviewing for this position.

    Interview Questions

    • Build a text wrapper. For example, split a long sentence by some character limit only at spaces.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Uber (New York, NY).

    Interview

    phone interview, data challenges, onsite.
    Overall positive experience for all the technical rounds. Most interviewers are trying to understand what you know and how much you know rather than asking you something you are not familiar with. For example, I was asked an NLP question in one round of interview. I mentioned that I not very familiar with NLP but I will try to answer based on my general knowledge in NLP. The interviewer immediately decided to switch to questions in other fields "Let's talk about something you know". And then we had a great conversation about several algorithms/techniques/design.
