    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2007.

    Interview

    Yahoo took a long time to give a decision after the interview. I got one phone interview and one on-campus interview. The phone interview lasted about 20 minutes and was asked coding questions. The on-site interview consisted of both personality questions and coding questions. The HR rep who organized the interview was very prompt in all requests and setting things up. However, I got the official offer about a month after my second interview. Basically, the manager didn't finalize on his end after the interview. I usually push for decisions by the end of the week, but Yahoo chose to drag it out to the very end. However, in the end, it all worked out.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yahoo in February 2015.

    Interview

    Three separate rounds of interview with HR, the department manager and the department head. A personal 1-1 interview session with each of the three persons in the colorful Y! office itself. People were generally pretty nice and friendly, and the interview was more like a
    Informal conversation and not that structured or formal.
