    Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Uber (Paris (France)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Process:
    - HR interview
    - Analytics test
    - Interview with hiring Manager
    - Case presentation to hiring Manager and other employees (1 week preparation)
    ... stopped here unfortunately

    I received amazing and outstanding support from the recruiting HR person to prepare those interviews.
    I'd advise some serious training on the company and business model even before applying

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Uber (San Jose, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The process was very rigorous but fair. It started from an HR Screen, and was followed by a Technical interview, 24-page market sizing exercise and 1-hr long jam session.

    Often Talent Teams get (and perhaps justified) bad rep. Most are unreliable, slow and unknowledgeable about how to spot the top talent. However, once in a while you get lucky and meet someone, whose business acumen, strong work ethics and dependability simply blow your socks off.

    That's Richard Ha. Without a doubt Rich is one of the very best Talent Acquisition Experts I had pleasure to work with. (and if I start another startup I will ask Rich to join).

    Rich is strong, driven, hard-working (yes, expect a friendly ping at midnight) and transparent.

    Rich trusted in me, and despite all negative Uber publicity wanted me to stick with the process. In the end, I didn't get the job but thanks to Rich my journey through Uber's recruiting funnel was just a breeze :)

    Community Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Uber (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Uber required me do a "homework" assignment before giving me an interview. I spent a week working on marketing ideas and promotions (ended up being an 8 page report), sent it to Uber, and never got a call back. NO explanation whatsoever why I wasn't moving forward. The EXACT same thing happened to my fiance. It's clear Uber is asking folks to do this just to take their ideas, while not have any intentions on hiring them. Super sketchy and unethical. Don't waste your time!

    Operations and Logistics Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Uber (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Extremely exhaustive and rigorous. Multiple analytics and quantitative analysis tests. I think I went through 5-6 interviews as well as a team grilling session. They definitely want to make sure you can handle fast and challenging data analysis in a high pressure environment as well as testing you as a culture fit by firing tons of questions at you from a panel of current employees.

    • Create a business model using a raw data set. They provided me with raw data about driving behavior and asked me to create a business model as if I was an Uber driver.   1 Answer
