    Creative Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty simple. A consultancy contacted me and told me about the profile. Upon arriving at the company and registering for the interview, a lady from the HR department took the initial screening round of interview - questions about our personal accomplishments. The only thing I did not like about her was how she would walk out in the middle of the interview to converse with a colleague of hers and stand chatting about something, while candidates were awaiting her presence in the interview room. Post this initial screening, we had to wait an hour for the written English grammar test to be conducted. It was a very easy test, which evaluated our language prowess and creative thinking abilities. Upon clearing this round, there was a technical round of interview with two of the supervisors of the team. They asked questions about the role, gave situations and asked me to solve the issues and problems. Post this, there was another technical-oriented round, where the manager briefed us about the nuances of the role. And after this, was the last round. Only 4 of us had made it out of about 30 candidates. In the final round, another manager asked me questions about what my ideal job would look like & how I like the profile at yahoo. The only thing I resented in the final round of interview was how the manager kept trying to dissuade me from continuing my candidature for that role; given that (as per her perspective) I had qualities meant for a more front-end profile than the back-end profile offered at Yahoo. Other than this, everything else went well. The entire process took about 8 hours. Everyone I met, made me feel welcome and comfortable.
