Account Manager Interview
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY).
Phone interview. Then met with 4-5 of people in 1 day. It was pretty relaxed. They asked about some specific accounts and executions I had done in the past for advertisers.
- standard questions. Nothing tricky or "philosophical" Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY) in May 2010.
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 applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at Yahoo (Boston, MA) in March 2010.
I was already an Associate Account Manager when the Manager of Account Management reached out to me about an open AM position. I had one 1:1 interview with the hiring manager and then received a follow up call from HR to discuss the package.

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.

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