Uber tech interview

I have my phone screen coming up for a backend engineer position. Could some one from uber or some one who interviewed recently throw some light ? Is it all leetcode medium or can I expect hard in phone screen ? Also does uber have a pool of qs or just random qs ? I was going to start working on uber tagged ones from LC. Do we have to answer 2 qs in the 1 hr interview?

    Was asked 1 LC medium with follow up. There's a decent chance that the question might be from the Uber pool on LC.

      Nope, had system design round after clearing phone screen. But I had only 2 yoe so YMMV.

      I recently did a phone screen with them. The question was short and when I finished it before time, the interviewer didn’t ask many follow up questions and interviewer ended 15 mins before time. Later for a call for onsite as well.

      I don’t think so but it was not very difficult.

    just had uber phone screen today. Got an LC hard (minimum cost to hire k workers) which is tagged as Google. That was definitely the hardest LC I got in a phone interview so far and surprise surprise I wasn't able to solve it.

      fortunately I have a few other companies still in the pipeline and already a few offers, but uber would've been one of the companies I was actually excited about the mission...

    I got two sum, and I literally did brute force at first. I know I’m stupid, but I still passed and made it to the onsite lol

    Make sure you go through all tagged questions irrespective of difficulty

      Not sure. Saying this because they get mad at times and ask "cherry pickup".

    And the recruiter asked me not to focus on dp. I open LC and the top qs is dp - cherry pick. Huh !

      Cherry pick is a fucked up question man. IDK why ppl ask such difficult qs

      Official interview training bans DP questions but some people are set in their ways and do it anyways

      I think asking DP is ok as long as interviewer is looking to see if the person can successfully break down the question and start identifying patterns and then give a DP solution . But cherry pickup is one which , only if someone has done it on LC ready , will be able to do.

    I was asked one LC medium. Wasn’t too difficult. But I screwed up my onsite 😐

      Uber tagged on LC for onsite? How was your sys design?

    Probably one LC medium but could be hard or two questions. Interviewers all have their own questions. There's a bank but nobody uses it.

    Oh man. I'm vexed with some uber tagged qs. Some of the qs are so exclusive to uber that no faangs ask them. The qs are so time consuming that I won't be able to complete all of them by interview day. I think I'll just prep for my next interview with another company and won't proceed with uber tagged qs.
