    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Yahoo in June 2008.

    Interview

    The questions that I got were balanced between pure research (somewhat open-ended) questions, and coding/algorithms questions. This was actually much better than my interview with Google, where I felt like I was in an IQ test rather than an interview, they did not even ask what my phd thesis is about, let alone any research questions.
