Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Hillsboro, OR
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Hillsboro, OR) in May 2013.

Interview

3 different interviews with middle management all in a small conference room. Most of the questions were geared toward our ability to handle difficult situations. They seemed to try to coerce the answers they were looking for out of me. Overall not too bad of an interview process.

Interview Questions

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    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.
