    Interview Details

    Applied for new college grad position, through college. Had a telephone interview for 40-45 mins.
    2 weeks later on-site interview with 4 Project Managers for 4-5 hours. The interviewers were friendly, patient and co-operative.
    One more on-site interview, for 30+ minutes. This interviewer was strict and very intimidating. Shot quick questions and seemed disinterested in my answers.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Yahoo in March 2008.

    Interview Details

    Company seemed in the between the extremes of refocusing and out right chaos. There was a fair amount of hubris yet they seemed to be suffering from AGAD (Acute Google Anxiety Disorder). It was an 8 hr interview which in my opinion was about 7 hours too long.

    I was difficult to know exactly what they were looking for as each person I interviewed with seemed to have a different view of the job requirements.
