    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo (Menlo Park, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The worst interview I ever had was for a web developer position with Yahoo! I was interviewed by a team of arrogant web developers. None of the people who interviewed me had any people skills. They basically interviewed me one-on-one, one right after the other. They bombarded me with questions that you could tell they were working on solving at the moment, and when I couldn't answer them on-the-fly without researching the problem and searching the Internet for solutions, they showed me out the door as if I had wasted their time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2007.

    Interview

    My interview took all day long and exhausting. However, some people have been hired after interviews with a few people and finished within an hour.

    Later I became a hiring manager and noticed that the process is depending on availability of interviewers and work schedules (or laziness).
    Many interviewers do not have ability to judge technical skills (when hiring an engineer) so they simply see if they personally like the candidate or not.

    Interview Questions

    • Very vague questions like "what is a DTD?". "what is a box model?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Tell the HR that you have gotten another offer from another company. You'll be able to negotiate the better salary.
