    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yahoo (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The HR selects candidates on the basis of their resume. Then a technical interview is scheduled. If you qualify the first interview, you will go through to the second one. It is easy to get an interview call if you have a decent resume. Be cool during the interview and speak all the time. The interviewer expects you to describe each and every thought process of yours.

    Interview Questions

    • First Question: Implement a stack using 2 queues. You can start by doing the brute force method but the interviewer expects you to provide the most efficient algorithm.
      Second Question: The interviewer asked me to write the exact code of how to find the inorder successor of a node in a Binary Search Tree. Also, he asked me the running order of the code that I wrote.
