    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY).

    Interview

    1 phone tech screen + 4 rounds on site
    The interview questions are quite typical. You may expect to code on a laptop.
    Based on what I observed, the environment and culture was good(easy, work & life balanced).
     It was not my first time having interview at Yahoo. I would say their HR/recruiters and their management were terrible. They were chewing while talking to you over phone. They could mess up the schedule, forget to follow up, etc. Last thing, you were rejected if they hadn't given you the feedback in 2 days.

    Interview Questions

    • 3 hour solving problem by coding on computer + 3 rounds of typical white board
      Its difficulty is median.   Answer Question
