Designer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2014.

Interview

Mine was a bit unique. I met one of the employees (from the team that was hiring) and we chatted over coffee. Then the employee set me up for a phone screen with the hiring manager. I seemed to have done okay on the phone interview so I got called to come for an on-site interview. I went in just to entertain them because I wasn't 100% enthusiastic about the job. The on-site was average and nothing out of the ordinary.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    I was referred by an internal employee for an interview. I was flown to the Sunnyvale office for a day-long interview. It started with an hour-long portfolio review, with a Q+A toward the end. For the rest of the day I had a 1-to-1 interview with different employees, ranging from a manager, PM, and designers, with a lunch break at noon. Quite a standard procedure.

    • Would you say you are an awesome designer?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase happened over the phone. The recruiter contacted me and after a brief chat she asked the salary I expected. I had a solid figure in mind based on industry standard, and it was a done deal right after I requested it.
