      isn’t that a possible good thing for him? since uber pays for the flight and accommodations and he doesn’t need to show up

      When Uber cancelled my onsite, they invalidated the Uber promo code for the ride to onsite as well. I’d expect them to cancel the flight and accommodation too.

    Ubers hiring bar is so low now. It used to be very high 3 or 4 years ago. If hiring bar is lowered then its either grunt work ahead or because they can get hold of good engineers.
