    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Yahoo in June 2011.

    It was very simple,
    I was asked to crack one skill test on skillexam.com, And that was the main phase of the interview. After that they called me for interview as my marks were very good and 'skillexam' is not an easy skill test. And that round was only negotiation round they didn't asked technical questions to me! simply I got oppointment letter after 10 working days and still I am working in Yahoo, CA.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Yahoo in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with another member of the team via phone. Was able to cover most of the language questions without too much difficulty, but then began to trip on questions about design patterns and specific algorithms. Unfortunately most of the jobs that I've had have been pretty elementary in terms of code design and usage, and so I was less prepared for that than I should have been. Did not get a request for a 1:1 interview.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Menlo Park, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Yahoo in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The worst interview I ever had was for a web developer position with Yahoo! I was interviewed by a team of arrogant web developers. None of the people who interviewed me had any people skills. They basically interviewed me one-on-one, one right after the other. They bombarded me with questions that you could tell they were working on solving at the moment, and when I couldn't answer them on-the-fly without researching the problem and searching the Internet for solutions, they showed me out the door as if I had wasted their time.
