Uber rejection in a day

Had an Uber Seattle onsite on Friday and got a rejection template email on Monday asking for re try after 6 months.

Does that mean I really fucked up the interview or they were just checking me at the last minute before making an offer to other candidate?

My interview was ok. Solved one LC in 2 codings and 2 System Design.

In general I found uber HR a bit rude and messy. I personally have no issue with this as long as I get the service but just wondering if this has anything to do with quick rejection.

    To be honest, rejection after a day is MUCH better than rejection after a month

    It just means you failed.
    It's pretty easy to discuss the results the next day and arrive to a decision

    I believe bar is probably high and to get a better shot you would need to complete both coding with optimized solution..

    Why would anyone join uber 3 weeks before we IPO? You will get absolutely terrible total comp

      Why is that? If the RSU gets granted at pre-IPO price, doesn’t that mean you get it at a discount (even with dilution)?

      I doubt they’ll evaluate using pre-IPO price. I know someone who got an offer from Dropbox few weeks before their IPO and he didn’t get pre-IPO price.

      5a eng starting today would get maybe 250 total comp? 175 salary plus maybe 75 in stock s year?

      compared to the 400+ of engineers from 3+ years ago

      Ha no. Even 4s are getting 275-280k. 5s will hit 350 easy.. Unless they started giving dollar amount RSU offers

    Same experience about interview as a whole just that they took a week to reject. Interviewer was rude and gave me Bs. Recruiter were rude too

      Maybe all these imaginary inflated IPO price has something to do with this but honestly I don’t give a F as long as I get an offer. Don’t wanna read much from it.

      Just accept the fact that you did not do that well in coding. Geez...

      I did well. I won’t waste my time on posting if I were wrong

    Typically it’s not uncommon to do a debrief at the end of the loop the same day if either there is an urgent need to fill the role or the interviewee has other offers and needs to make a decision.

    I am sorry it didn’t work out. It may also be ok to ask the recruiter if there is any feedback that the interviewers has that you could work on. Good luck.
