Application Details

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Yelp.

Interview Details

Pretty straightforward overall. For me it was a phone interview and then one over skype. They asked me a lot about the products they offer. Then they had me go through a scenario where I was a yelp employee and had to talk to a business owner about the importance of yelp toward the business. Interviewer was pretty passive overall and he didn't seem like he was interested in what he was doing. All I saw this was an opportunity to get more experience interviewing.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Yelp in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    applied online, passed the phone interview and scheduled a Skype interview, interviewed with three different people whole process was about an hour, position was a lot of cold calling. They were very nice. at the time applied to multiple yelp internships, and they asked why apply one internship over another (basic). Left room for a lot of my questions.

    Interview Questions
    • wanted me to present a sales pitch--repetitive, but did not ask for any sales knowledge....so a little challenging without any idea of how a sales pitch would go... they considered themselves to have different competitors then those listed online.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Yelp in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Horrible process. Unprofessional interview team. Did not seem interested in what I wanted to say. Seemed like they were just looking for bodies in seats.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Yelp in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Fairly straightforward sales interview, I believe I wasn't made an offer because I was too low energy. Met with a total of 3 people, 2 of them just asked the standard set of questions, one person had me role play a call with a lead. Position had base salary with commission. The sales floor seemed young and fairly intense.

    after applying they do a phone interview and if you are chosen you get called for a main interview. I was interviewed by 3 people separately during the interview i was asked to sell a product. Interview was pretty fair and appropriate for the job.
