Just got laid off in Uber India

Nov 3, 2019 24 Comments

I just got laid off in Uber India. Trying to search for my next gig. My boss tells me it's performance but I'm not sure as I sense an ulterior motive.

My main concern is how do I best answer this question when potential recruiters ask me why I'm not working right now or why I'm searching.

Please help what do I do??

      Removing low performers is a legit ulterior motive.

    I’m being interviewed at Uber India, BLR. 🤔

    They told me “we are expanding India office like crazy, layoffs are a US thing”

    • There was pretty big layoff round at Uber (Bangalore) recently.

      No, layoffs happened in India also. They won't tell you that,

      Which team and role?

    So you got fired, not laid off?

  • Just say you are on leave and it's easier to look around and prepare without a full time job.

    Although, I suppose recruiters are getting used to seeing recently unemployed Uber folks.

    Say that you resigned because you already have (xyz) offer. But before accepting it you want to try other options.

      They might ask for the offer letter

      Only if you are negotiating based on that offer. Why else ?
