    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Uber (United States)

    Interview

    Phone interview: common BFS/DFS problem. Interviewer was nice but seemed disinterested. He was obviously doing work the entire time.

    Onsite introduction: there was supposed to be a pre-onsite discussion with a recruiter, who was a no show.

    Onsite 1: hard string manipulation question. I came up with a brute force solution but couldn't think of the greedy optimization in the allotted time. The interviewer wasn't necessarily bad, but he provided zero guidance the entire time, which lead me to believe that his only data point is whether I could actually solve the problem on my own.

    Onsite 2: design question. The interviewer started by simply saying "design X", and I started by approaching it as a system design question. Within a few seconds of me trying to pinpoint requirements, he interrupted by saying "no, that's not what I meant. I want to focus on class design." I then started coming up with some basic classes, and he interrupted me again to say "no, don't discuss implementation details at all. Only think about APIs." So I started focusing on the APIs of the classes. Then he interrupted again and said "that's not what I want. How will you handle this on the frontend?" I started talking about how the frontend could consume my change. "No, I want you design the APIs." So I went back to the APIs.

    You get the point. This guy genuinely interrupted me every couple of seconds to rescope the question, and any time I tried asking a clarifying question, he'd look up, repeat what I had just said to him with a smirk, and say "let's do something else." I don't consider myself an angry person, but I was genuinely considering walking out at this point, which I've never considered in any prior interview. By the time we reached an agreement (only discuss the object-oriented design, no implementation details), he criticized my design by pointing out that it wouldn't work due to a probable implementation detail. This entire round was a disaster from start to finish, and I don't think I've ever been this upset after an interview. The interview concluded with me asking him some questions about his work, which just caused him to giggle and say something like "just ask a senior dev on your team." I have zero idea how people this asocial can slip through the cracks at top companies, but this guy somehow managed.

    Onsite 3: behavioral. This interviewer was the best. She showed up on time, asked respectful questions, and was generally pleasant to talk with. I think this interview went well. She mostly asked about my internship experience.

    Onsite 4: data structure design question. Pretty simple question that is very similar to LRU cache. I gave an optimal answer within a few minutes, coded it, tested, and it worked. The interviewer was okay, but he blatantly told me that my solution wouldn't work and that I shouldn't rush through my implementation without being sure that it made sense. I argued that my code would work, so we ran it, and it worked. He seemed upset and, in the last five minutes of the interview, he asked a hard follow-up that assumes a knowledge of distributed systems. I thought the interview was going well up until this point.

    Onsite outro: there was supposed to be a post-onsite debrief with a recruiter, who was a no show.

    Thoughts: I had never experienced the culture at Uber before these interviews, and I've gotta say: it's bad. The interviewers typically range from disengaged to combative, neither of which are justified. Everything, from the slow recruiters to the unprofessional interviewers, screams red flag about this company. I will never consider interviewing here again.

“Millions of people miss doctor’s appointments every year because they don’t have a ride. And the people who really need these rides...can’t always use the Uber app. Uber Health doesn’t require riders to have smartphones or credit cards. [They] can get text messages or even landline calls about the trip. We’re building off of technology that this company built and it’s really helping people.” Learn more about Leor Shtull-Leber's 7 year Uber journey and why Uber Health is one of the most exciting places to be.

Jacob Adicoff is a Frontend Engineer on the Uber for Business team and a Paralympic silver medalist in cross-country skiing. Jacob is also legally blind; his mother contracted chicken pox during pregnancy, which affected his visual development. He has no vision in his right eye and very limited vision in his left. When Jacob was in second grade, his parents introduced him to skiing through the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Junior Nordic Development team in his hometown of Sun Valley, Idaho, and he was hooked. “I just really took to it,” explains Jacob. “It’s cross country skiing, so it isn’t as fast as downhill skiing. You’re going up and down hills — it’s a total endurance sport.” Throughout his junior skiing career, he raced against an almost entirely sighted competition. His first Paralympics experience was in Sochi, Russia, at the age of 18, and although he didn’t win any medals, he describes it as a great and formative experience.
