Declined Uber offer a few months ago and now I majorly regret it. How likely will I be able to get my offer back or reinterview? Figure it won’t hurt if I email the recruiters or manager right?

Help!

    Why did you decline the offer in first place?

      Never trust managers. Always be convinced of the company vs the specific team you join

      For future reference, if you are expecting something from your current position, use an offer like that as leverage to get what you want. (I imagine you already did this, and your manager didn't uphold his end of the bargain...)

      That's shitty to hear. Did he explain why it fell apart? Or perhaps he can do something else instead?

      Btw is it about a promo you didn't get?

    Explain what changed briefly and ask if the position is still available. Can't hurt to ask but keep it brief.

    It won’t hurt, but how you approach the reach out matters. Don’t come off needy, don’t come off pompous. You’ll want to supply an understandable reason for why it’s back on the table for you, it’ll help if you can spin this to be a positive for the company. Also, expect that position to be filled; meaning you may have to interview all over again—at least with the HM.

    You said that your current manager failed to deliver on his promises when offered the job.
    That's an honest and fair reason to leave.

      Good to know. Wasn’t sure if that would be unreasonable. Thank you!

      Yeah mention that when you reach back out to Uber.
      Also, often recruiters get back to candidates who rejected the offers as they've already been vetted, or they'll help you interview again much easily.
      I've had fidelity recruiter getting back to me a year later if I was open for the same position. And I've had Geico's recruiter help me skip the line for new position a couple of years after I rejected their offer.
      Recruiters need to have people hired, it's a safer bet to go back to vetted people.

    Thank you all. Should I reach out back to the recruiter? Or HM? Recruiter was disappointed when I didn’t take the offer but everything was done in a very mannerly and transparent fashion so I don’t think that bridge is burned?

      Reach out to HM. If you need a new recruiter I can connect you with the one that made man an offer. I’m still in good terms. So he could get you opportunities in core Uber or Uber ATG.

      Can you tell us the offer level and TC please

    • Oracle techlord12
      Level 4, TC: 220k. What’s yours?

    I’m going to be in the same shoes. My other option if Uber won’t reach back is to go join Amazon or Microsoft. Microsoft’s pay is really low 😢

      What was your Uber level and offer?

    Please contact the hiring manager directly.

    As long as you were professional it shouldn’t be a problem. I would be happy to hear back from a candidate that we gave an offer to.

    It the position is still available it is possible to get it back w/o interviews unless there’s policy against this (friend did this)
