Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo in February 2015.

Interview

Took about a month from start to finish. There were two interviews. Both were done over the phone along with an online collab coding tool. Both of the interviewers were extremely friendly and seemed like they genuinely wanted me to be comfortable enough to answer the questions properly. They were open to multiple solutions to a problem and appreciated the different (efficient) approaches to a problem.

Interview Questions

  • First interview: Different ways to find first unique char from a given word, Big O Notation, Qualitative questions.
    Second interview: Find the 10000th Hamming number efficiently, design question

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

    Interview

    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 1 dayinterviewed at Yahoo in January 2008.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2007.

    Interview

    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.
