Seems like, there is hiring freeze going on in Uber. I was selected for Uber onsite but recruiter told me I need to wait until they receive headcounts. How long do I have to wait for the onsite interview?

- Uber swishertymThe CTO has heavily implied that layoffs are coming in Eng. But no set details
- Uber / Eng JckrmoreLet’s contextualize this. Lots of people on Uber blind are convinced that eng layoffs are coming and have been saying that for years. CTO said once that if the org were leaner and we had same resources we could give more to high performers. The Cassandras of Uber have interpreted that as “layoffs confirmed” especially in the context of marketing layoffs which did happen. This was in an answer to an all-hands question that I had asked, so you bet I listened to each word very carefully.
Then, when asked specifically if there were layoffs planned, the CTO said there weren’t. There are still people convinced that eng layoffs are coming, but I personally don’t believe that and it’s not based on something out CTO actually said.Aug 8 7
