Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Yahoo.

Interview Details – Interview process was good. It was back to back meeting for 5 hour stretch with multiple managers. The interviewers were good and were open to answer direct questions on where Yahoo is heading. It was more of open discussions where the discussion helps to understand how you are a good fit and whether Yahoo looks like a place where you would like to world.

Interview Question – Situation based question on how to deal with different characters who do not give buy-in on projects   View Answer

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Yahoo in April 2007.

Interview Details – Submitted resume to internal employee, got a call from Yahoo recruiter a few weeks later, had an initial phone interview. Followed up with recruiter and employer. Was asked to come in 2 weeks later for two sets of face to face interview. 2 weeks later received an offer letter from HR. Yahoo is a great company to work for, the folks strive for work/life balance. Positions are very silo'ed. Be prepared to be SME on your industry

Interview Question – How do you see yourself grow this particular position?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiated salary, bonus, stock options and ISO stocks. Ask for more stocks

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Taipei (Taiwan)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Yahoo in September 2011.

Interview Details – Was initially contacted by HR and was followed up with subsequent 1:1, and group/panel interview. The real kicker is the final HR interview that was nearly like police interrogation and lasted nearly 2 hours. Aside from that, the previous interviewers were quite likable and personable and were actual coworkers.
