Answer Example
"Although I have not worked with a team based messaging application, I am confident that I would learn very quickly. Which team based messaging apps do you use at Uber? I would love to get a head start and begin learning through online tutorials."

Question 2 of 30
Tell me about a time when you failed to solve a problem. How did you overcome the failure?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
'Success is bouncing from failure to failure without losing momentum,' or so they say. Your resilience shines through when you can learn from your mistakes and keep going. Give an example that shows you can accept fault and learn from challenging experiences.

Answer Example
"I failed to meet an important deadline in my first job out of college because I didn't know how to prioritize properly. I kept letting other menial tasks get in the way rather than focusing on finishing the project. I learned how to manage my time wisely by setting reasonable goals and reminders on my calendar. This technique helped me to manage my time more effectively."
Answer Example
"Last month we were having issues with our GoToMeeting application, and it was right before a major client meeting. I was on a call with the service provider, trying to troubleshoot and unfortunately, did not deliver a fix on time. After the initial frustration, I decided to talk to my boss about having backups in place. Now, we have Skype, and Google Hangouts set up for these emergency situations."

Question 3 of 30
Can you talk to me about your GPA during undergraduate/graduate school?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The interviewer would like further details on your more significant successes as a post-secondary student. Are you satisfied with your GPA or would you change it if you could? Talk to the interviewer about your post-secondary experience. You can keep your answer brief and to the point.

If you were satisfied with your post-secondary experience: 'I graduated top of my class and am very proud of my accomplishments during University. The experience taught me to study hard and set goals for myself.'

If you were not satisfied with your post-secondary experience: "I feel that my GPA could have been higher; however, I was working full time while attending classes. All in all, I did learn a lot about discipline and commitment."
Answer Example
"I feel that my GPA could have been higher; however, I was working full time while attending classes. All in all, I did learn a lot about discipline and commitment."
Answer Example
"I graduated with a 3.6 GPA which I was very proud of achieving. I made the Dean's list and earned various scholarships."

Question 4 of 30
What is your current salary?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
A potential employer will often want to base their offer of employment on your current salary. Whenever possible, you should be transparent about your most recent earnings and be prepared to back up any salary requests in states or provinces where it is entirely legal to ask about compensation. Keep your answer simple, and to the point. It is indeed okay to ask the interviewer what Uber is offering in return!

Answer Example
"I am currently earning a base salary of $78,000 plus health benefits. I am looking for a competitive salary in my next position."
Answer Example
"I am currently making $100,000 per year with two bonus opportunities based on our profits. I am looking for compensation that is aligned with the role and provides an opportunity for growth. Could you share further details with me on your compensation plan?"
