    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (La Jolla, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I talked to a software engineer at a career fair. The recruiter liked me and scheduled a technical interview 3 days later. The interview was technical phone one, where he asked me questions about basic data structure/algorithms (problem solving). The interviewer was very helpful in giving me hints. It took a while for them to get back to me though.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo in January 2017.

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews, both technical. The first guy was very cool and was very impressed by my performance on the first question which took relatively longer time (~45 mins). He just asked second question which he was not expecting me to complete, but just asked my approach to solve it, he even provided some hints. I gave detail algorithmic approach to solve the problem and he was very impressed with that. Then the second phone interview was a mess up. There was a guy who just asked a question (not good english) and after my attempt to analyze and solve it, asked me to stop because the interview was only 30 mins. He didn't say about that in the beginning of the interview. He gave me 5 more minutes to solve it, I tried my best and had algorithmically correct code. He just told me to contact the HR tomorrow which means he had bad scoring for me. I didn't contact the HR neither I heard from them.
