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?

First I was given a fairly simple hacker rank question to be completed in 20 minutes. Then the next step was to complete a 45 minute video interview over coderpad. The first time the call was scheduled, they sent me a faulty coderpad link, so I had to reschedule it. The second time the call was scheduled, my interviewer didn't show up. Overall I don't know what it is, but terrible interview experience that just wasted my time.

Interview Questions
  • The hacker rank was a pretty easy string/json parsing question.

I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (San Francisco, CA) in Nov 2018

Interview

20 minute Hackerrank prescreen, reached out for a 45 minute technical Skype interview with an engineer one week later. Took about a week after I sent my availability to confirm the time of the Skype interview. Very flexible in rescheduling this interview when I realized I was double-booked. This interview was quite easy, and seemed mostly to give an idea of how collaboration is at Yelp. About a week later, the recruiter reached out with an onsite offer. The onsite was 4 interviews: 2 behavioral, 2 technical (one system design, one algorithms). The engineers were friendly and acted as good sounding boards. After the onsite, my recruiter was very respectful of my deadlines and rushed the process, getting back to me with a decision just three days after my onsite.

Interview Questions
  • Design a system for calculating and displaying a small new feature on a Yelp business page.
