    Was contacted by e-mail after applying online. They sent an online assessment--the question was easy to medium difficulty, but has a strict time limit. The next day after finishing the coding question I was declined.

    Interview

    Hackerrank interview.

    Yelp by far is one of the most garage interviews I experienced. It's mind boggling to me that a timed quiz is your entry point to a conversation with an actual person.

    Any company that uses hacker rank to evaluate you is broken. No one in any environment works in a timed box. I'm still flummoxed that this is how they actually do screening.

    Interview

    Overall was a really nice experience, the recruiters and interviewers were very nice. The questions were really interesting, collaborative and thoughtful. I liked that they put a lot of emphasis on things you've done. They reimbursed all expenses involved.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yelp.

    Interview

    First was an online coding test on Hacker rank. The question was an "easy" level on Leetcode. After a week was the Skype interview. The interviewer was friendly. First 20 mins or so was talking about experience, why applying for the position, etc. He asked me a question on numerical analysis. Then a coding question, which surprisingly was pretty easy. Then a puzzle question which I couldn't solve. A few days later received an email rejection.

    I applied online. The proccess took 2 weeks. First was a 15 min online coding challenge that was easy. Then I had a skype interview a week later. It was straight forward. Behavioral questions, then a 1 coding question that wasnt hard. It seems they like using questions about: duplicates, overlaps, things of that nature

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp in April 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted resume and HR scheduled for a basic phone screen. Friendly and smart HR team. Very smooth and efficient co-ordination. Was moved to the next round. It was a 30 mins technical interview. Was given a crappy coderpad with some SQL problems. Interviewer had a rude tone. She had no patience to explain questions. At one point coder pad control was snatched away. Wish I knew the time limit for questions or at least be notified 30 secs before time. Terrible experience.
