I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Uber (Bogotá, Bogota (Colombia)).
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day and after a couple days they reached out letting me know they wanted a Skype call with me. The process went smoothly from the beginning i must say upfront as compared to many other applicants who felt that from the very first Skype call the interviewer was not interested at all. People in contact with me were always very professional.
The 1st phone screening was a great opportunity to know more about Uber and consisted of standard first-round questions about myself, my experience and expectations. At the end of the call i was told I´d be provided with a creative test to complete in the next couple days. Indeed, i got the test by email which i must say was pretty challenging. Though i had read the comments on Glassdoor about "idea farming" i decided no matter if it was true, to give 100% from the get-go till the end of it. At the end of the day, we all can come up with great ideas, the key lies in how well you execute on them. And honestly, if Uber does really do that, that´d be pathetic considering they´re hiring talented people so shame on them!
Three weeks later after returning my test (over 15 hours invested and almost 16 PDF pages) to the recruiter i heard back from him and was asked later if i wanted to join the team for a happy hour at their offices, which sounded very informal right off the bat but what a better and cooler way to get to know their team, culture and your future colleagues in one place as you grab some pizza and soft beers. Happy hour was packed with applicants and team members. An absolute get-to-know atmosphere.
Few days later i heard back from another recruiter informing me they wanted to interview me on-site. 4 interviews to be more precise. One of them with 2 local team members and 3 through Zoom remotely with Senior Marketing Managers and Senior Community Managers. Very detailed and challenging. Each interview ran just over 30 minutes.
Overall, the process was very thorough, totally expected from one of the hottest unicorns out there and though my experience was 100% positive till the last step, i feel they should give you some feedback on why they will not move forward with your application after so many hours and effort invested.
Hope the company continues to disrupt every market they operate in sticking to ethics and a world-changing vision.
