Rejected after Yelp Onsite

Oct 27 29 Comments

The best onsite I ever had in my life.
4 rounds

System Design - Nailed it. The interviewer in the end himself said ‘Very good. I am happy’.

Coding - 30 mins to code a question. Coded it usung Hashmap and ran test cases on laptop. Also talked about optimized aproach using Trie. The interviewer looks satisfied too.

2 Behavioral - Both went good I think and they looked really chilled out.

Recruiter told she’ll reach in 3-4 days. After 2 days, I told that I got an offer from Uber, got reject after 2 days.

Do you think it can be possible as I mentioned a competing offer ?

YOE : 2.5

      Uber didn’t reject you but you could get laid off 🤷‍♂️ Idk why you’re complaining about not getting an offer, this happens all the time regardless of the company.

      I am not complaining. Just asking if it was because I mentioned a competing offer. I am very aware of the current conditions of both the companies. Even Yelp is no great.

      Could be possible. I pinged them asking feedback. They told it is against the company policy.

      Another reason to screw Yelp. Even FB and Google will offer some feedback.

    Yes. Probably there were more than one candidate who did well.
    You made it easy for'em playing hardball w/o a formal offer from them

    Wait until they give you an offer before you share your competing offer next time

      I had a deadline so had to mention. But is it a good idea to wait ?

      Always wait. Even if you have to, don't mention the competing company's name unless asked.
