Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Yahoo (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

Interview

Met representatives from Yahoo at the university fair. Discussed possibilities regarding a summer internship. The HR was very friendly and scheduled an interview the following day as per my preferred time slots. The interviewer was pretty chilled out as well. A brief discussion of my profile and experiences, followed by a simple program to reverse a given string.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo in October 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter was ridiculously slow and / or unresponsive. I sent 3+ emails asking for my first interviewer's email so I could personally thank them, or for her to pass forward my thanks. Not a single time did she respond to any of my emails or confirm - the only times she ever replied to me was because I was direct replying to one of her emails, and even then she'd respond 3 days (minimum!) to a week later. On a Monday I asked to switch the 2nd round phone interview from that week Friday to next week's Thursday. She responded that same Friday an hour before the interview, and the interviewer called anyway because my recruiter clearly didn't contact them. Extremely unprofessional. I declined to continue with the interview process after that because communication was so lacking and frustrating.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Champaign, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Talked to a Yahoo Champaign representative at a career fair. Had two phone interviews with members of the team I was applying to which was a web focused team. Was asked a lot of specific HTML/CSS, javascript, web questions. The interview was pretty specific to the actual team/tools that you would be working with during the internship.

    I applied the job through oncampus career fair and then I got the interview. I scheduled the first round interview and pass it, get reply within one week. I scheduled another round of phone interview, and I answered all of them and the interviewer said it was good solution. However, I received no response from them any more. They did not email me the final decision.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a college recruiter. They immediately scheduled an interview for me the next day. First interview was pretty easy but I messed one question up, so I thought I wouldn't make it to the next round but I did. Second interview was 1 hard Leetcode question but I got it right, so i got an offer. The offer process was really long. For some reason Marissa Mayer has to approve every intern acceptance, so I had to wait at least two weeks after I got an offer to get an official offer letter. Overall it was an enjoyable process.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    One technical interview with multiple people. Asked to present on previous projects and work. Standard whiteboard programming problems at the end. Seems like the experience is highly variable based on which group you interview for.
