Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2013.

Interview

Longer process than I would have hoped but very friendly and exceptionally transparent. Got a first screening phone call with the recruiter because I was referred internally by a school alumn. Then phone interview with the hiring manager, then 4-5 in person interviews, then another couple of follow up phone calls. All interviews were very pleasant conversations about my experience, skills and thoughts about the role/team.
Anytime I asked interviewers or the recruiter for feedback/update, I received very candid and timely responses, which I must is very rare especially from big tech companies, they usually say the bare minimum, but Yahoo! far exceeded my expectations in terms of transparency.
Only negative is the very long wait times between each steps, 2-3 weeks between each step. But again they very openly told me that I was the first person going through each step of the process and that they needed to interview other candidates before deciding on who will go to the next step.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    Yahoo! flew me up and scheduled short interviews with key stakeholders. It was more informal than I would've expected, with generic interview questions. The people, however, are really welcoming, friendly and excited about the next chapter with new CEO Marissa Mayers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY) in January 2008.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the hiring manager and she set up a phone interview with. I was then called to come in and meet 1:1 (actually 2:1). I arrived a few minutes early (not more than 5). I was taken to an empty conference room and interviewed for about 30 minutes by two managers from the Marketing dept. I thought the interview went remarkably well. I was asked typical interview questions; no curveballs here. There were no awkward moments, and I thought I came off as quite charming, without being creepy. Anyway, I was told I'd be contacted within a week. I wrote thank-you letters to both interviewers and mailed them out right away. No response within a week. I called and left a VM for the interviewer; no response for two weeks. I call again, leave another VM. No response for a few days then I get a call back saying I will not be offered the position. Interview process was alright, communication bad.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2007.

    Interview

    Very clear from beginning to end. You interview with a ridiculous number of people but it's all pretty laid back and they are mostly looking for fit. They don't ask a lot of "casing" or "scenario based" questions. Instead it's a bit more like a conversation than a high stress interview.

    Negotiation

    Yes, if you keep your requests to a reasonable level they will work with you.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Madrid (Spain)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I have been contacted by the recruiter without job application. Whole process lasted 2 weeks. Interview is pretty easy, they ask general questions about your CV and about the job. The HR department is slow and will not give any feedback for a long period of time (I have waited 3 weeks and did not received any reply from them, even though I have wrote them multiple times).
