    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Atlanta, GA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was a phone technical interview. I handed in my resume on our school's career fair. Then they reached out to tell me that there is a summer internship opportunity. It took about two weeks to determine the final date. The interview was really about technical skills. All the questions was about java knowledge.

    It is 2 phone calls, then an on-site. It was a pretty straight forward process, reminded me of Google APMs process. Fair in difficulty. I would also like to emphasize to read prep books.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    Received 2 phone interviews - very standard and the interviewers helped you when you got stuck. The questions were fairly easy (I applied as freshman), mostly about the programming language itself and your past projects, small coding problem that was extremely simple.

    Interview

    Yahoo Sports team.
    The recruiter directly calls my number instead of email every time when I am in office!!! How could I answer phones when coworkers are around me, but he is doing it every time...
    After I pass phone interview, I got take-home task to build an app.
    Don't wast time on their take-home project! I spent hours finishing their app. I finished all features and even several bonus features. I also wrote documentation. They said they will give me feedback within one week, but actually they didn't do it at all. Next week, the recruiter called me, as usual, that they will not move forward with me. I asked whether they tell me which part of my code doesn't meet their standard, I said it will be appreciated even if they only use two words to describe my code or documentation, then the recruiter never relied me... Their behavior makes me look down upon Yahoo Sports team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yahoo (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    Process was disorganized and chaotic. Their own schedule was not adhered to. A few interviewers were garbled and inarticulate, and could not formulate questions properly. A few simply did not show up. Then some spent most of their time texting while trying to ask questions during the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yahoo (San Francisco, CA) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I had an initial screening with a recruiter. He was nice enough. He said the technical interview was next, and remote. I was glad it was only one hour. The technical test was an unrealistic ask, but I submitted my work anyway. I was rejected from the job promptly.
