Software Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Yahoo in March 2014.
Interview Details – There are three parts. 1. Write code based on a design (actually more like complete the code) 2. Take a test with SQL, Math and Programming questions 3. Discuss your code written at 1 with a Senior Programmer and the Hiring Manager.
Even though I had to travel by bus for two hours, there was no reimbursement.
They seemed utterly confused and disorganised as I was trying to reach the recruiter for 10 days. They certainly do not justify their name and I won't apply there again.
Interview Question – No difficult questions, just a difficulty to stay on the same track with the interviewers as they were asking for something different than what was written at the coding description. They probably need to rewrite that description. Answer Question
Senior Program Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Yahoo in September 2013.
Interview Details – Just got an email from an HR representative to schedule a phone interview. The phone call took 40 mins and I was asked general questions about my current role and experience, as well as math and questions related to the advertising industry. Some of the questions are a bit naive...
Interview Question – Why this role? View Answer
Account Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Yahoo.
Interview Details – Had a brief phone interview with recruiter, scheduled face-to-face interview with hiring manager and one director.
Asked standard interview questions and discussed the industry a bit, interview went really well and invited for second stage interviews with a director and another manager. Again went really well.
Got positive feedback from all, and was told they will be preparing an offer.
I was then, to my astonishment, told that the position has been cancelled due to headcount review.
Interview Question – Nothing. Answer Question
Advertising Operations (Junior) Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Yahoo in December 2011.
Interview Details – Phone interview, interview with associates and final interview with senior team members.
Very nice ad team in London, however the HR department is just badly organised.
Interview Question – Many situation based questions i.e. tell me a situation where you made a wrong decision, the right decision. Answer Question
Program Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Yahoo in September 2010.
Interview Details – First stage was HR interview over the phone going over your CV and soft skills.
Second stage was Phone interview with the hiring manager talking about past experiance and relevant skills for thefuture position.
Third stage was 1:1 interview with hiring manager, 2 team members and operations director. each interview was face to face and lasted 45 minutes. all on the same day so total of about 2-3 hours.
People were very nice and friendly. it was more of a conversation about past experiance and project management skills. some technical questions but not very difficult.
Interview Question – How do you deal with difficult team member? View Answer
Custom Brand Experiences Project Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Yahoo in March 2011.
Interview Details – I got a fast response from Yahoo after I applied for this position. They called me on Friday to arrange a telephone interview on Monday. I checked the interviewer's LinkIn profile and found out she was an inter HR that made me a bit concerned. The interview took place and the interviewer was nice, the questions were simple and standard. However I found it difficult to catch her English because she was clearly not British. I became a bit nervous after asking her to repeat her questions a few times. Also I can feel that she was getting frustrated. The interview did not go very smooth towards the end.
Head of Content Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Yahoo in January 2009.
Interview Details – I was interviewed by teams in different areas but the process was much longer than in other companies so by the time I was invited to a second interview I already had two other offers from other companies.
Interview Question – Can you give us an example of a time when you have had to deal with conflict? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Speed of process
