I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Yahoo in November 2013.
Interview Details – Two phone screen followed by a full day of interviews. It was a mixed bag because some engineer are real good to prepare for interview, others more random. One was very poorly dressed and really stinking. Two interviewers worked on a problem that they had faced. These were very good. One was annoying because he kept on hinting that I did not know some acronyms and terms as well as he did. Maybe such people are everywhere. Had a good lunch with no interview questions.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at Yahoo in March 2013.
Interview Details – Applied through yahoo careers. Hiring manager emailed me a few days later to set up a phone screen. Asked questions about my resume and experience. A few days after that was asked to come in for onsite interview. Onsite consisted of 4 groups of 2 interviewers, out to lunch with 2 guys (non-technical, very relaxed; talked about sports, hobbies, families, etc), and 1:1 with the hiring manager. Everyone was very nice and respectful. Each group asked some general resume questions and had me explain some of my previous work. Then had me work through a problem on a whiteboard. A few days after the interview received an email letting me know that I did not have some of the technical skills they were seeking and therefore was not getting an offer. Wasn't the worst interview I've ever had. Thought I did well despite not having as much experience in certain areas as they were wanting and was disappointed that I was not given an offer.

Interview Details – I was recruited through my University and first had a phone interview which consisted of basic OOP questions and my experiences. I was brought on-site a week later and had 5 1:1 interviews. First one was just getting to know the hierarchy of the company. Second one was reverse engineering - programming errors were provided and solutions had to be found. Third was algorithm and logic based. Fourth was OS design and problem solving. The last one was SQL. Overall pretty heavy on the technical side with a 10 minute break.
