Yelp

At Yelp we have “quarterlies” where we align with our manager on our growth over the quarter and if there is a “misalignment” in where we think I am then we chat about it to try and come to a mutual understanding. In my last two quarterlies I’ve felt like we’ve misaligned in multiple areas and I spent a ton of time explaining things that my manager didn’t know I did. So my question is… have you experienced something similar and what did you do to fix it. How can I gain visibility?

Interview

Thorough and challenging, got to meet with 3 different managers. Once they established that I was a fit they made an offer and I accepted. It was a fairly quick process overall.

Interview

There were far too many interviews for the position, particularly given the length of the in-person interview with a follow-up virtual mini-course and interview that took up additional time. Overall, it was unnecessarily long.

Two interviews with team members and managers, nothing to prepare beforehand. Both interviews were online, 30 minutes each round (5 rounds in total), very pleasant experience which made impact on my decision to accept the offer.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Yelp in May 2022

Interview

30 minute call with a recruiter (do your research about the company/they send you a list of things they will ask in an email) and a 45 min call with a hiring manager. The hiring manager spent most of the time talking about the negative things about the position and was not engaged in conversation.

I made it through the first round of interviews with the recruiter. Basic first round questions. However did not make it to a second round even though the recruiter indicated that I would be recommended.

Interview

Interview process was one call, one video call. I think anyone can get hired if you have an interactive persona and can sell. Glassdoor keeps making it impossible to use as they are asking for job reviewing and salaries every other day

Interview

Interview was very difficult due to questions and language barriers. The questions they asked did not pertain to the job description or job requirements. Overall it was not a good interview. They should consider selecting different people to conduct the interview

Interview Questions
  • 1. Business model 2. Quite a few questions about work history that did not relate to position
