    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process was fairly basic, as I was a referral. I had an initial phone interview from a HR recruiter or talent acquisitions manager. The phone call lasted maybe 10 - 15 minutes and was very top line. I then scheduled an interview to meet a potential manager. This interview went well and I set up a 3rd interview to meet a Director, in which I was required to put together a brief Powerpoint presentation on Yahoo!. I didn't take the job, but the interview process wasn't too bad.

    I had just receieved a raise as a part of our annual review process for my time spent as an Associate Account Manager. I got the Account Manager promotion shortly thereafter so I was able to negotiate an additional 5% on top of the initial offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Had a brief phone interview with recruiter, scheduled face-to-face interview with hiring manager and one director. Asked standard interview questions and discussed the industry a bit, interview went really well and invited for second stage interviews with a director and another manager. Again went really well. Got positive feedback from all, and was told they will be preparing an offer. I was then, to my astonishment, told that the position has been cancelled due to headcount review.
