    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (San Francisco, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The process was actually quite casual. Interview was fun and engaging. Interviewer was very disarming in order to get a clearer view of me as a person and how I would fit temperment-wise on their team.
