Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Yahoo in February 2015.

Interview Details

The process took three days. First one on Thursday, and the following on Sunday. The whole process took around a week. I like the interview process, although the second round is a little bit quick due to some computer problems for the recruiter.

    The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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.
