The process took a day - interviewed at Yahoo in January 2008.
Interview Details – The interview didn't focus on the boring algorithm/coding problems. We spent most time discussing the open problems related to the group's work. It's more flexible and it's not possible to prepare. I like this format though. I was feeling relaxed and it was like chatting.
Interview Question – What is the largest possible number of internal nodes in a red-black
tree with black-height k? What is the smallest possible number? View Answer
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Yahoo in April 2007.
Interview Details – Yahoo took a long time to give a decision after the interview. I got one phone interview and one on-campus interview. The phone interview lasted about 20 minutes and was asked coding questions. The on-site interview consisted of both personality questions and coding questions. The HR rep who organized the interview was very prompt in all requests and setting things up. However, I got the official offer about a month after my second interview. Basically, the manager didn't finalize on his end after the interview. I usually push for decisions by the end of the week, but Yahoo chose to drag it out to the very end. However, in the end, it all worked out.
