    Interview Details

    This is a on campus interview, the process of the interview is very straight forward, a guy look at my resume and ask about some detailed questions regarding it. Then we have worked on a question on a c++ question, which is simply find out all the prime number less than 65536. Then we discussed some web design skills which I've used in my projects. I think I did well, but didn't hear from them since then.

    Phone interview, ask to implement hashtable with C. The interviewer is friendly and talktive, but It is suprising that they ask to use C. I was a little stuck and did not finish it quickly enough.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview Details

    2 phone interviews.

    I had a negative experience. The person who contacted me asked me if I could interview at a certain time, during which I replied I had an exam and offered many other times for an interview on following days. After a week of no response, I followed up, and was told I will be receiving phone interviews at times other than ones I had listed.

    The first interview went well, but the second interviewer seemed to think I was incompetent and disregarded my suggestions for the solution even though he later suggested the same things.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got one phone screen and a on site
    the phone interview focus on really wide range, with a very easy code question and a very hard question. i didn't figured out the hard question but they still give me the onsite
    onsite had 4 technical interview and an addition with manager
    the technical interview arent that hard, espically the really coding question are really easy
    it covered exactly the four topics they send to me before so it's easy to prepare too
    but I didnt get the offer probably because I sucked the oo design questions and not good at sql

    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview Details

    I received my first interview through a friend who already worked at the company. She introduced me to a director who initially had one of his employees interview me for a position on his team. While I was not a good fit for that team the director connected me with another group at Yahoo. I restarted the interview process with them and was successful.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was not particularly difficult. There were questions about the process behind specific mathematical methods. However, the majority of questions asked how I would approach particular situations at work. Ex. If you need to inform a business unit about the success of x what would you do.

      One of the more difficult questions was:
      Use this white board to explain how multiple regression works.
