    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Yahoo in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school's careers website. I received an email within a week to set up a phone interview. The phone interview questions covered my resume and interests. About a week later I had onsite interviews with 4 different people. Each interview lasted about 45 minutes. Questions were not overly difficult and focused on scripting and databases. Everyone was extremely nice and made me feel very comfortable throughout the interview process.

    Specialist Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Santa Monica, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Monica, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview Details

    Received a call from the HR rep and scheduled a phone interview. Rep made it sound like I was a good fit given my experience and set-up a face to face with 2 Yahoo managers and 1 director.

    I've had one interview in the past with no offer and found a pattern. The director will always drop-out of the interview at the last moment. This is how you know you won't get an offer.

    I wish HR at Yahoo would be a little more professional in understanding the skill set needed for a position. They usually have no idea about what is really needed beyond the job posting.

    Also, Yahoo follows the crowd of companies that will not update you after the interview has been completed. Most of the managers I interviewed with did not respond to my calls/emails and the responses I received were that they didn't know when I'd be contacted.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Yahoo in October 2009.

    Interviews are quite technical, tele interview followed by on-site (at least 5 people). Good place to work with lots of benefits, however due to recession, company has not been very generous. no complains though.

    Interview is really really technical, so make sure you know your subject well.

    Good Luck!
