    Interview Details

    Had 1 phone screen then invited to onsite. I felt that Interviewers are not interested in interviewing candidates. Some interviewers told me that he is not sure what to ask as he does not work in the team I was interviewing. worst HR and worst interview process.I was interviewed for back end position but one interviewer was asking front end questions.

    Interview Details

    An e-mail from someone at yahoo. Followed by a talk on phone. Two technical interviews on phone. I kept asking about the position they are looking for and they kept mentioning we have a "lot" of positions and will fit you based on skills. Then an invitation for onsite interview and then the bummer, they had no idea where they want to fit me and kept deferring.

    Interview Questions
    • None..., just simple ones. May be if there was something onsite, it would be interesting.   Answer Question
