Interview Details – Interviewed with another member of the team via phone. Was able to cover most of the language questions without too much difficulty, but then began to trip on questions about design patterns and specific algorithms. Unfortunately most of the jobs that I've had have been pretty elementary in terms of code design and usage, and so I was less prepared for that than I should have been. Did not get a request for a 1:1 interview.

Phone interviews and face to face interviews are mostly on the technology and skills. The interviews are very objective. It can be tough, if you don't know what you are talking about.
Interview process consisted several phone interviews, with different people. Yahoo! is very careful on inviting people for face to face interview, at least that was my feeling. The face to face interviews can be lengthy, be well rested and prepared before the interview.
Interview Question – None of the questions I felt very difficult. But, the interviewers are very knowledgeable. View Answer
