    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Santa Clara, CA).

    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.
