Is having nothing better than Hotwire?

Hotwire LuaghOn
Apr 22 14 Comments

I'm fed up of this organization and Expedia, to say the least. No career progression, bad quality of work, poor choice of people and petty politics. Hotwire has it all and worse. The technical management is made up of people with experience in companies like Yahoo, Walmart, Macy's, Ripple, Hotwire, Kodak and such grade of companies. I have been attempting to switch since a couple of years now but no success. Not even internally. Cleared Expedia technical interviews for two different positions, twice but things didn't go anywhere after manager feedback and I have no clue what happened. I'm thinking of doing anything but waste my time here at Hotwire. Is there anything better for me to do? Should I stay around for the salary?

      Yeah, but I wonder if the next place would be any better or the same crap.

      I guess, job is like a girlfriend. Pretty and attractive at first and inspiring for another, after.

      I got an online test for Uber recently. Couldn't get either of the two questions completely correct. Seemed doable but maybe after practice. Gonna work.

      BTW, is it just the interview part that requires leetcode or do you need to be as good daily with algos for working at Uber?

      Can’t speak for Uber, but for most of the positions I’ve had, understanding basics like DFS/BFS, sorting, runtime complexity, is necessary to be decently productive. Many leetcode hard tricks you will usually never see outside an interview setting.

    Would stick it out until you find a new role. Took me 8 months, but have quit without a new job lined up in the past and it was a bad decision. Worked out ultimately, but could’ve gone poorly.

    You could quit and travel. Leetcode later.
