    Account Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Omaha, NE) in January 2015.

    Interview

    A lot of behavioral interview questions. "Name a time when you didn't get along with a co-worker, how did you handle that situation". Questions that ask you describe a situation and how you handled the situation. Which doesn't provide a lot of insight.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Yahoo (Omaha, NE) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews, both on phone and in person. I think I had 5-6 total and it was a mix of hiring managers, peers and managers from other departments. There were several weeks of lag time in between and then everything completely shut down over the holidays. Then it was a couple of months before I was finally hired. It was not worth the time. Once I was receiving an offer, the HR person assigned to me could not get my paperwork right to save her life. Read and double check everything they send you because every HR and payroll person I have ever met there is completely irresponsible with details and makes frequent and careless errors.

    Interview Questions

    • Google search "behvioral interview questions" (but pretend you used Yahoo) and have a solid understanding of their ever-changing fleet of products. Check that day because things are deprecated A LOT. (funding issues). Don't say you use Yahoo maps because they will know that isn't true. Stick to Yahoo news or something basic.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They don't negotiate much. Check glass door salaries and know what you are worth going in.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process was fairly basic, as I was a referral. I had an initial phone interview from a HR recruiter or talent acquisitions manager. The phone call lasted maybe 10 - 15 minutes and was very top line. I then scheduled an interview to meet a potential manager. This interview went well and I set up a 3rd interview to meet a Director, in which I was required to put together a brief Powerpoint presentation on Yahoo!.

    I didn't take the job, but the interview process wasn't too bad.

    Negotiation

    I had just receieved a raise as a part of our annual review process for my time spent as an Associate Account Manager. I got the Account Manager promotion shortly thereafter so I was able to negotiate an additional 5% on top of the initial offer.
