I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Yahoo.

Interview Details – Was contacted by email a month after applying. I had a phone interview with 2 separate teams. Both went well. Had two second round phone interviews, one with each team, about a week after the first one. Went well also. I was told by HR I should know the result for both teams within a week. Now, it has been almost 3 weeks since that and I've contacted HR multiple times through email with no response. When I called them they told me they are still interviewing other candidates and I should know the result soon. I have a deadline for other offers so I'll have to accept those offers because Yahoo has a horrible interview process and they do not care about any time constraints or the fact that the interviewee has other deadlines. Don't apply for this company, you'll be wasting your time. I don't know what's going to happen to my result but if they end up offering me the position over the next week or so I will decline it.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult, basic questions including topics like systems programming, web servers, some perl questions. All based on resume pretty much.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Horrible interview process, they do not care about deadlines and take their sweet time to get back to you (if they even do get back to you).

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Yahoo in March 2013.

Interview Details – Dropped an resume at university job fair, received an email about interview one month later. Since I am interviewing with yahoo mobile team, the first interview mainly focused on the knowledge about Android, also includes some basic Java knowledge questions. One week later, I had a second interview. Surprisingly, almost all the questions are about Java knowledge as well.

After the second interview, since I have other offers approaching deadline. I sent several emails regarding my situation, in hope for that I can have their decision earlier. However, after two weeks of wait, finally I got one email from the recruiter. The email is very vague. So she said that "the feedback was positive, but I am waiting to hear if there are additional teams that would be interest in discussing opportunities with you further". Without mentioning their actual decision.

I don't know what's going on with Yahoo. But what I guess is that they actually had the position full.

Interview Question – We asked a question about weak reference in C++, since I am not familiar with C++, I failed to ask that question.   View Answer
