    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Yahoo in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was actually quite good. Everybody from the telephonic round to the final interview with the senior manager were courteous, amicable, transparent & friendly. I was at ease through out the whole process. It began we me applying on an online job portal, then I received a telephone call from the HR & scheduled an interview after the preliminary questioning. The first round in the interview was an online aptitude test, after that an interview with one of the experienced members on the Ad Ops team & post that an interview with the Senior Manager. I felt welcomed & comfortable with the whole process.

    Interview Questions
    • I did expect the interview to be tough as this was my first job but since I was transparent from the beginning about my inexperience, I was able to handle the questions with a bit of common sense & logic. They provided case studies & asked how I would handle the situation & what kind of decisions I would make under certain model situations. This didn't require any knowledge in the filed of advertising just needed to employ quick thinking & creativity.   Answer Question

    Technical Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Yahoo in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty long process. It started with the recruiter talking to me about the role and my expectations and then followed by telephonic and in person interviews. The entire process took about 5 weeks but I was kept updated all through. The telephonic round was more about fundamentals of front end engineering - HTTP, web page performance tuning and also about why I wanted to join Yahoo. The in person interviews were more elaborate and I was asked to write some code and explain few page load optimization techniques besides a few questions on design, algorithms and some math.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Yahoo in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had 5 rounds of f2f interview on a single - all technical. All the questions asked were relevant. As I was being interview for a automation framework development role, the questions asked were all technical, questions that you can expect in interviews for development positions.

    Later on I had 2 telephonic discussions on 2 separate occasions. One of them was a technical discussions with one of my teammates. The other one was a general discussion with my to-be manager.

    Interview Questions
    • The good thing about Yahoo interviews is that they take care to understand your profile ans ask relevant questions. Nothing unexpected or awkward.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Yahoo! offered me more than what I had asked for. I came to know after I joined the company that it was very low for my designation or experience.
    So when you negotiate with Yahoo make sure that you know what is the standard salary for the role you are joining. If you ask for a low salary, Yahoo (or any company) would not bother to give you salary according to their standards
