    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview where it was completely about the previous QA Experience.
    Later I had an interview which had questions from Java, Database,XML, X-Query, HTTP protocol.
    Then it was in person interview where I happen to meet with 4 persons and each one interviewed for about 45 minutes, everyone was good and each had different questions. I really felt kind of worthful questions.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo in March 2007.

    Interview

    The hiring manager called me asked general questions regarding my current experience , then started asking about some testing concepts. The a week later I was called for onsite interview, by 5 people I think. Each person will ask different area of questions like QA experience, Programming, Database, Linux skill. One interviewer came with the laptop and I could use his laptop to perform some basic web programming to demonstrate the QA areas. I was surprise I wasn't asked to do any programming demo live, it was all about concepts , methodologies.
