    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Typical processing. They asked about behavior and stuffs. But I don't really remember. There should not be a really long section here requiring over 30 words on hiring and interview. It is ridiculous.

    Interview

    All day interview with a recruiter and about 5-6 engineers. Had lunch with the team and discussed Hadoop, which I had not heard of at that point. Interviewers seemed to ask questions that would reveal whether I could do that job: They didn't ask brain teaser puzzles.
