Some random HR called told me that the HR I was in contact is out and the position is on hold. is this due to the recent losses... not a good sign if they are not hiring engineers ... or is this a common practice with Uber

      Meaning the OP just woke up . It’s been known for last few weeks that Dara along with CFO is on cost cutting mission . Probably good for the company bad for prospective or current employees

    Only took a quick Google search to find this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-08-09/uber-freezes-hiring-of-u-s-tech-staff-as-it-seeks-to-cut-costs

    Put in more effort next time.

    They probably saw your destination then changed their mind. Uber does that sometimes.

    Currently Uber has freeze hiring of Engineering according to Yahoo Finance. This may be an impact of recent losses of $5.4B. Not a good sign for now.

      Looks like OP has been living under a rock. Will ask a stupid question, but won't tolerate a stupid answer and will resort to name calling.

    Atleast they should take the phone screen so you and the interviewer can practice together man. I hate these people 👻
