I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Yahoo in April 2010.
Interview Details – There were 2 phone interviews, which were used to narrow down and identify the team that would conduct the in person interviews. In person there was a series of 4 one on one interviews, back to back, over the course of a few hours. No deeply technical or theoretical quizzes, just enough questions to asses my actual familiarity with front end development and willingness to work on the team, continue to learn, etc.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Yahoo.
Interview Details – I received a phone call from their recruiter and scheduled me for interview.
I was first interviewed by their senior front end developer.
His questions were mostly about terminologies which I didn't really like e.g. 'what is DDT?'. I failed to answer some of the trivial questions he asked. I don't think those trivial questions were necessary when your doing development work in the real world because you can easily google the answers and terminologies.
I was then interviewed by their engineering manager. The questions were mostly technical and situational in which I think I did a great job answering them.
Interview Question – What is DTD and a bunch of other objective type questions. Answer Question
