    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo (London, England (UK)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted via LinkedIn by an in house recruiter. Only had the initial phone interview currently and waiting to hear about any possible next stages. Was asked 20 questions about varied subjects ranging from what various acronyms stood for such as HTTP to when is it appropriate to use a button vs an anchor link. Was asked some more maths type questions with a particular focus on probability. These were considerably more difficult

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Yahoo (London, England (UK)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    There are three parts. 1. Write code based on a design (actually more like complete the code) 2. Take a test with SQL, Math and Programming questions 3. Discuss your code written at 1 with a Senior Programmer and the Hiring Manager.

    Even though I had to travel by bus for two hours, there was no reimbursement.

    They seemed utterly confused and disorganised as I was trying to reach the recruiter for 10 days. They certainly do not justify their name and I won't apply there again.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions, just a difficulty to stay on the same track with the interviewers as they were asking for something different than what was written at the coding description. They probably need to rewrite that description.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Just got an email from an HR representative to schedule a phone interview. The phone call took 40 mins and I was asked general questions about my current role and experience, as well as math and questions related to the advertising industry. Some of the questions are a bit naive...

    Interview

    I learnt about the opening at a tech event. I applied via e-mail. They replied asking about my current job situation. I answered comprehensively and they never got back to me. I tried a follow up e-mail and still nothing. Very rude from them.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Had a brief phone interview with recruiter, scheduled face-to-face interview with hiring manager and one director.
    Asked standard interview questions and discussed the industry a bit, interview went really well and invited for second stage interviews with a director and another manager. Again went really well.
    Got positive feedback from all, and was told they will be preparing an offer.
    I was then, to my astonishment, told that the position has been cancelled due to headcount review.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo (London, England (UK)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I got a fast response from Yahoo after I applied for this position. They called me on Friday to arrange a telephone interview on Monday. I checked the interviewer's LinkIn profile and found out she was an inter HR that made me a bit concerned. The interview took place and the interviewer was nice, the questions were simple and standard. However I found it difficult to catch her English because she was clearly not British. I became a bit nervous after asking her to repeat her questions a few times. Also I can feel that she was getting frustrated. The interview did not go very smooth towards the end.
