Technical Yahoo Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Yahoo.
2 phone interviews. First one was pretty basic, asked about general concepts like object oriented programming. Second one came about a month later. Interviewer asked me to write some code/pseudocode on collabedit using singly linked lists. Also asked about binary trees and how to find least common ancestor using linked lists. Finally asked go to Sunnyvale for onsite interview day. The interview day took place a month after the second phone interview. The job title "Technical Yahoo" is just a general title for a programmer at yahoo. There are many different programming departments. General presentation of the company is given in front of everyone. Lunch is served. Later, an employee picks you up to take you to a room for interview. They ask technical questions, ask you to write code/pseudocode on whiteboard, explain your code, optimize, etc etc. 3 individual employees have separate 1 hour interview sessions in total. About 1-2 weeks later, you will know if you got an offer or not through email.

Technical Yahoo InterviewNo Offer
I had two phone interviews, one with an engineer and one with the hiring manager. The first interviewer was pretty inexperienced; he quizzed me on OOP terms for the whole interview (What is an abstract class? What does the static keyword mean?). The second interview was much more enjoyable as the interviewer was more skilled. He asked me to implement a Page class and a Book class, and to use these to determine how many times a given word appeared in a Book. He then asked me to optimize my solution, which I did using a HashMap.
