    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lyft.

    Interview

    Experienced a terrible recruiter . He said he would schedule a technical phone screen after the initial HR screen. He never followed up and then stopped replying to my emails.

    He seems extremely inexperienced for a tech recruiter at this caliber of a company. I hope it's just one bad apple. Don't waste candidates' time.

    Advice:
    Get better recruiters.
