    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview Details

    I received my first interview through a friend who already worked at the company. She introduced me to a director who initially had one of his employees interview me for a position on his team. While I was not a good fit for that team the director connected me with another group at Yahoo. I restarted the interview process with them and was successful.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was not particularly difficult. There were questions about the process behind specific mathematical methods. However, the majority of questions asked how I would approach particular situations at work. Ex. If you need to inform a business unit about the success of x what would you do.

      One of the more difficult questions was:
      Use this white board to explain how multiple regression works.
