    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview Process was quick but I thought that the position was being oversold and the interviewing process was very unstructured. I had to fly in to the location and they didn't have the interviewer ready. A few interviewers walked in randomly to take the interview and one of them even had code written on paper. What kind of org has this level of planning for so called senior positions... I was disappointed and that was probably the reason why I didn't pursue it whole heartedly..
