    University Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was fortunate to get an interview for this position but it did not go as well as I hoped. The interview process for this position had 3 different levels. First, a phone screening interview, where they get to know you. Second, another phone interview with situational questions and the last one is an in-person interview with a panel of I think 4 interviewers. I only made it to the first round but I know of the other rounds because they explained the process to me during my interview. The interviewer discussed my work experiences a bit and asked me a few questions but I felt he focused most of the questions on my sales experience which did not seem to relate to the position as much as my other experience. The person who interviewed me was the manager of the department I would be working with, he was looking for someone he would like working with on his team. While I was very nice and genuine I found it hard to establish a connection with him. I saw some interests we had in common on Linkedin but I did not bring them up. I feel if I had, he may have moved me forward in the interview process. I say this because part way through the interview I felt he became uninterested in what I had to say (probably because I was being asked about my unrelated experience). Right after the interview I emailed him to remind of my related experience and thanking him for the interview but I received no response. Maybe I just was not qualified though.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn who setup a 1hr phone screen. I was asked to code some html/css/js followed by an algorithm since it was a full stack role. Following the screen I was called for an onsite at Sunnyvale. The onsite had 5 rounds of interview including one lunch interview. Four of the rounds were purely technical with only white board coding.

    Unfortunately I felt the problems that were asked were very difficult. I was asked three dynamic programming problems, one trie problem and one bit manipulation. I was able to provide the pseudo code for almost all the problems except one which completely stumped me. I almost felt like I was interviewing for FB/Google.
