Uber Interview Advice

I have an interview with UberEats scheduled. I have just under 3 yoe so I'm expecting L4. Interviews are:
* System Design
* Coding (Algorithms)
* Problem Solving (mix of above 2 I think)
* Hiring Manager
* Bar Raiser

I had a call with my recruiter to discuss each one and how to prepare. I wanted to know if anyone whose interviewed with Uber recently can share more advice, the questions they were asked etc.

How difficult are the coding problems? I see some hards tagged "Uber" on leetcode. That's worrying. I can solve almost all mediums but hards trip me up usually.

Any examples for system design questions. I got a few examples from friends/leetcode discuss. They were design airbnb and design a photosharing app and design google autocomplete. Any advice here?

I forgot to ask my recruiter this but what are the main differences between hiring manager round and bar raiser? What kind of technical questions should I expect in these rounds?

Any tips for behavioral questions? Any good resources for behavioral questions.

In particular I'd love example questions other engineers have recently been asked in interviews.

Before I forget my TC is $155k. Before you ask why so low @ FB, it's because I am an 'enterprise engineer' which is software engineer developing internal business tools.

    You realize uber is laying off heavily in recent months and most of the bay area was the target for those layoffs?

    This is nonsense. If you’re being interviewed you’re definitely wanted.
