    I attended my school's career fair and met with one of the recruiters from Yahoo. We decided to schedule an on-campus interview afterwards. The interviewer was pretty nice. He was really passionate about his lifestyle at Yahoo in the Bay area. Then we go into a technical question.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Very straight forward. Lots of data structure and algorithm question. The interviewers were friendly and helped with the questions. The interview process took couple of hours. Lot's of white boarding. I will suggest practice question on whiteboard. It will help.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo (Ann Arbor, MI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was not quite an interview but a meet-up during a career fair. The recruiter on the scene did not seem to be very knowledgable about the work. He showed no interest to me, and would rather respond to mediocre projects made up by other interviewees.

    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

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted over LinkedIn. Scheduled initial phone screen tech interview. But, they did not call me on the scheduled time, rescheduled again, didn't call again, rescheduled again and finally called on the 3rd time. The person who interviewed me was rude, seemed like he was in hurry to get the interview done just for the sake of it. If you don't have the time to take the interview in a professional manner, why waste the time of candidate?
    I believe I gave the answer to the question they asked including edge-cases, still got a rejection email saying they wanted to hire someone with more coding experience. Not writing this review because I didn't get selected for next round of interview, but purely because of the bad experience I had with the interview process.
    Totally a negative experience, just like using their app and website.
