If you’re interview at Lyft (or Uber) soon and would like some advice, check out our course: The Uber & Lyft Interview Prep Package

Lyft Application Process
  • Have you ever wondered what it takes to actually work at Uber and Lyft? And no, I’m not talking about driving, I’m talking about as an actual employee.
  • What is the Lyft application process like?
  • In this episode, I’m excited to interview Bryan Chung, who recently interviewed with Lyft.
  • He’s here to share his experience about the interview process, why he chose to interview with Lyft and a whole bunch more.
  • Not yet a driver? Sign up for Uber and Lyft – Lyft even has a new bonus structure you can read about here, and basically all new Lyft drivers earn on a per ride basis, instead of an all or nothing structure.
  • Remember it’s important to sign up with both companies to diversify your earnings and make sure you’re staying busy while on the road.
Podcast Interview with Bryan Chung
  • Bryan is a UCSD grad who, after college, tried the traditional investment banking route.
  • After a few years of that, he wanted to try something new, so he went to Gap to do strategy and operations. 
  • Interviewed recently with Lyft, wanted a consumer-facing job, a company that is fast-paced.
Finding Jobs at Lyft Corporate
  • Initially found out about jobs via LinkedIn.
  • About a week after applying, received a call from a recruiter and spent 45 minutes on the phone.
  • Retail operations strategy – basically, a strategy team that thinks of better ways to use and grow Lyft Hubs.
  • Sometimes applying for jobs online seems like throwing your resume into a black hole, but it is still a way to get jobs.
Tips for Improving Your Chances of Getting a Lyft Interview
  • Get a Lyft interview by doing your research and enrolling in this course
  • Think like a recruiter – what would they want from an employee?
  • Network with people you went to school with or worked with in the past
  • Learn about the industry you want to work in – what’s the newest information about your industry?
Preparing for The Lyft Interview Questions
  • Whether you’re applying for Lyft or another job, think ahead about the kinds of Lyft interview questions you may be asked.
  • Things like, why do you want to work here? How do your past experiences apply to this job?
  • Did research online, like at the Rideshare Guy, to find data on drivers, their pain points, etc.
  • For the Lyft job, took a lot of Lyft rides and talked to drivers.
  • Final interview was 45 minute presentation in front of a panel, then five, one-on-one interviews. Before that, an Excel test that took roughly 90 minutes.
Thinking Ahead
  • In the end, Bryan did not get the job with Lyft but he is moving forward in other areas.
  • People usually talk about the jobs they didn’t get, but few people talk about the 20 they weren’t that into or that led up to the job they currently have.
  • Bryan perhaps could have talked to more drivers, but in the end it came down to experience, which Bryan didn’t quite have at the time.
  • Bryan believes enrolling in our prep course would have increased his chances of being hired
Lyft Hiring Process
  • Thank you to Bryan for coming on and explaining the hiring process at Lyft.
  • Just wanted to show the type of preparation that goes into these jobs, the tests and presentations you have to do, but also how to handle rejection and move on to the next opportunity.
  • Also important to remember applying for jobs is about making your value known – don’t focus on pay first (although it’s important), focus on proving why you’re the best candidate to hire.
  • Not yet a driver? Sign up for Uber and Lyft – Lyft even has a new bonus structure you can read about here, and basically all new Lyft drivers earn on a per ride basis, instead of an all or nothing structure.
  • Follow me on FacebookTwitter and YouTube and you can always contact me if you have questions – I like to hear from you all!
