Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo.

Interview

I submitted my resume and got contacted by a recruiter within a week. Had 2 interview calls with a design manager and senior designer, and was invited for a 1 hr panel presentation. It felt like they were more interested in the product of my current company than myself as a candidate. I was told someone would contact me to provide feedback but I haven't heard back from anyone since my in-person interview.

Interview Questions

  • They asked more questions about the product I'm working on rather than questions about myself and my design skills.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo in October 2011.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 5 individuals, then I gave a portfolio review and participated in a design exercise with other designers and engineers. The design exercise consisted of a mock review of a Yahoo property and specific examples of what I would do to improve it. There were about 15 people in the conference room for the portfolio review and design exercise. Everyone was very nice and I did not feel particularly stressed during the design exercise or portfolio review.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo in September 2008.

    Interview

    The process began with a phone call from the recruiter. From there we scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager which went well. At point we set up an onsite interview at Yahoo! to meet with the various team members (together and separately). The interview did not require a self-presentation, however I was given several skills tests and challenges. The onsite interview lasted a full six hours, and I felt somewhat encouraged. Afterwards, the manager requested additional sample work and proposed a design challenge. The frequent communication from the recruiter was impressive and seemed positive. However three weeks after the onsite interview, I was informed that the team was continuing their search.
