Any idea how hard the Uber online interviews are. Does LC medium suffice so should I be ready to scale up the solution, etc. I have one on Tuesday

    I got an LC Hard and failed to solve it. Seems to be the exception though - just got unlucky

      Feels like a DP or greedy question. Should be ez for code monkeys 😂 I am half human and half code monkey now. The transition is painful.

      Wait. This sound like a medium. You just sort the driver by cost, and enumerate all combination of k drivers and get the lowest sum of costs. 😂 Similar to the combination sum problem.

      As long as you get a working solution you should be fine, because in the interview no large datasets will be tested like leetcode does.

      I wish it was that easy. There are some constraints you have to satisfy. Particularly each driver has a minimum wage expectation that you have to fulfill and furthermore you have to pay each driver relative to all the other drivers taking their years of experience into account. You basically have 3 constraints: select cheapest overall, fulfill each drivers minimum wage expectation and pay everyone relative to the other.

      just look the exact question up on LC if you have too much free time 😅

      Will do tonight. Also I find the weekly contest really helpful. If you can solve 3 questions in 1.5 hour, you can beat phone interviews.

    Thnx, tough luck. Hard to solve unless you remember the solution right away. This whole process is a bit broken, it seems

      agree, hard to solve unless seen before. The interviewer seemed to be a recent grad who probably spent months to prep himself for LC and got a bit over excited 😅.

      So you had a.phone interview and there was a hackerrank link right?
