Handling the application process

August 6, 2020

Get someone to refer you. Even if you don't know someone personally, reach out to someone on LinkedIn and ask them to refer you. People are happy to do that because they do get a bonus.

August 6, 2020

Ask important questions upfront. Get a true sense of what the promotion cycle is like. Interview other people at the company to ask them what their experiences have been. What comes from recruiters can sometimes be salesy.

Application and interview process

I got referred by a friend that works here. The recruiters got back to me pretty quickly and the process went well, but then there was a big pause due to a re-org. When they got back to me, I had about 24 hours to do the interview and sign the offer.

Application and interview process

The salary and level that they initially offered was lower than expected, but they told me that I’d be able to get promoted and earn a higher salary at promo (summer/winter). Now that I’ve been here longer, I’ve realized people don’t usually get promoted until after they’ve been here for at least a year. I think they should’ve made it clear that you have to wait a year to get promoted. Now I’m kind of stuck with my current level/salary.

Application and interview process

I took that to my manager and asked to be re-leveled. Apparently, there's a three-month window rule when you first start where you can only be re-leveled during that time, but that wasn't documented or mentioned during training or promo conversations before.

Diversity programs

I feel like the D&I orgs at Lyft are a lot more integrated. Their voices are taken into account when decisions are made. They recently hired a D&I manager, and she’s been working on making things better.

Relationships with manager(s)

My manager is very supportive. A big part of it is that she’s also a woman. She understood that it was frustrating that I wasn’t getting compensated the way I wanted because she’s been through similar things.
