    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2007.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to internal employee, got a call from Yahoo recruiter a few weeks later, had an initial phone interview. Followed up with recruiter and employer. Was asked to come in 2 weeks later for two sets of face to face interview. 2 weeks later received an offer letter from HR. Yahoo is a great company to work for, the folks strive for work/life balance. Positions are very silo'ed. Be prepared to be SME on your industry

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Yahoo (London, England (UK)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    not bad but could do with improvement, just basic questions plus a test. 3rd interview stage is a presentation on yahoo products. they take ages to get back to you after each stage as hr are very unorganised. 1st interview telephone interview, second face to face and 3rd presentation, managers lie in interview and don't bother to ask you many questions, its more about them and their self importance. overall not a good experience and many colleagues would agree, pointless questions for a pointless company

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Taipei (Taiwan)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Was initially contacted by HR and was followed up with subsequent 1:1, and group/panel interview. The real kicker is the final HR interview that was nearly like police interrogation and lasted nearly 2 hours. Aside from that, the previous interviewers were quite likable and personable and were actual coworkers.
