    For anyone using search - I interviewed with them. 
    They are basically mini Amazon
    They have company value list - similar to Amazon.
    Original ppl were all Amazon.

    Interview process is basically Amazon at senior level.
    65%+ of it is behavioral - very aggressive behavioral. 

    1.  30 min behavioral + Leetcode Hard problem
    2.  30 min behavioral + Leetcode medium-> hard problem
    3.  30 min behavioral + Design Instagram / Twitter / etc ..
    4.  30 min behavioral + Design a feature in their app
    5.  One was 30min full behavioral

    Impression was that they are trying to create environment similar to Amazon.
    1 guy was arrogant / off.
    1 guy was super cool.
    1 guy was aggressive / unfriendly
    2 guys were whatever / fake
    Recruiter was top 5 prettiest people Ive seen (Call me! : 1-800-LEETCODE)

      yes met with the developer for coffee. you should expect not actually having any coffee :). it was just a one-hour talk discussing interests and employment history on my side. he also presented the company and what they do their Technology stack Etc. no technical questions whatsoever. there might have been a couple behavioral questions but I'm not sure about that.

      Cool, thanks!

      If you don't mind sharing, how did the interview go, did you get an offer and how's does it look? Were they pushy in scheduling next round? I'm planning to take 3-4 weeks to prepare.

      +1 on username, lol

      coding went great. design with probably medium but of course I can't judge. behavioral terrible . failed most likely because of Behavioral or a combination of Behavioral and Design.

      from talking to the recruiter it became obvious that they wouldn't be able to offer competitive pay.

      I would expect 20-30% less base than FANG and similar stock (paper). Just a guess tho.

      This matches well with my experience, but everyone was very friendly. I didn't have any of the arrogant/unpleasantness described here but it was otherwise a very similar loop.

    Uber Freight is crushing it, just so you know.

    I had an interview with convoy for a position I was overqualified for and had basically the same job already at a larger company. The CEO asked very arbitrary case style questions “tell me your greatest passion” “now to build that into a non profit”. He then chipped a way at it in a way that made zero sense but it seemed like a “cool startup question” for a guy that came off as very corporate. Not impressed. Also their office is very dull is used to SF startup office culture. However I was impressed with some other people who I met with so wouldn’t fully write it off.

      I interviewed for an director role in Ops, so the questions may not be relevant if interviewing for a more technical role. The majority of the questions from other interviewers were behavioral and conversational based off my experience. Nothing you wouldn’t expect except the CEO question

    I have an offer from uber as well, but I believe convoy would be better to go with

      Curious why you think that? Have you checked App Store ranking and ratings?
