Technical Writer Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo.
Applied online. Contacted by HR. Conducted a 30-minute phone screen with Senior Technical Writer. He seemed enthusiastic to have me come in for an in-person interview. No response - from anybody, including HR. No call backs, emails, or any form of communication. Dead air. Nothing, despite various attempts to contact them. Highly unprofessional. The process died prematurely with no explanation. Frankly, the company is failing, and their star of relevance has faded long ago. I'm happy I didn't move forward with them.

Technical Writer InterviewAccepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2013.
One phone interview with recruiter. One phone interview with hiring manager. One onsite interview with seven people, 45 minutes each. Every interviewer was friendly and informative. No "brain teaser" type questions. Each person used the entire 45 minutes. Provided lunch, but also had a more casual interview over lunch. Brought a portfolio, but no one asked to see it.
