    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Yahoo in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone screen followed by on site. On site were 5 rounds. Focussed on algorithms, trees, linked list questions. Also design questions on real world problems like shopping site design. They wanted code in Java code. went deeply into multithreading and design patterns and other internals into Java language. Some sorting/searching code. The interviewers were very polite and helped me through the answers. Few even said they would like to see me there but i got reject. HR are really bad here at communicating. They take long time to respond. I had to mail them multiple times to know. Well if they don't tell within 2 weeks, its reject. They never communicate if you are not selected.
