Seems like, there is hiring freeze going on in Uber. I was selected for Uber onsite but recruiter told me I need to wait until they receive headcounts. How long do I have to wait for the onsite interview?

    I have my onsite scheduled in next 4 days, travel was also booked and I got the on hold mail now. It was also for the Uber search team.

    The major lay-off was marketing related roles. Freight is still in hyper growth mode so it won’t face cuts for another year or so I believe
