Cruise vs. Zoox Interview Bar

I think it’s fair to compare Zoox and Cruise as closely competing self-driving pseudo startaps owned by carmakers and baked by solid investors. If you’ve interviewed for both, what’s your opining about interview bar? Please share the role/department you were interving for.

      I never ask LC style questions because it’s fucking stupid and I make sure my opinion on this is known. I’m actually mostly seeing folks pass coding sessions and then bomb design and b&v one but I don’t interview many juniors anymore

      For me it was mostly junior engineer less than 1 yr industry experience

    Cruise has a much more rational business plan, zoox needs another X billion in funding to develop their vehicles to a point where they can be manufactured and approved for the road. They are basically trying to create a Tesla taxi that has L4 autonomy from the start.

    Haven't interviewed with Cruise but Zoox's process was pretty long and their bar seems fairly high.

    Cruise interview seems very unprepared and untested. Almost all the interviewers were just 2 or 3 months in the company.

    I cleared both. I interviewed for firmware engineer and definitely felt zoox was more productive and professional.
