    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Champaign, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I got an onsite interview without any phone screening. As others have mentioned, it was from 9 AM to 3 PM. I had 5 interviews, four of which were technical and one was talking to the manager and site director. The technical interviews were very interesting. I was asked questions on data structures and algorithms, core operating system, object oriented design and concepts, and distributed systems. Each interview focused on one aspect. It was different than any other interview experiences I have had. However, the team of interviewers seemed to have a solid background and experience with systems. All in all, it was a great experience and I am looking forward to hearing from them.
