    Android Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    Worst company to interview for... do not join..

    Had a phone interview. Basic algorithms and binary trees.
    Had an on-site. Recruiter didn't give me good information about the on-site process and suprised me with a totally different schedule than planned. They hadn't even paid for my hotel and I had to pay it myself, but more on that later.
    On-site was fine. Interviewers were polite. My recruiter was laid off one day before my interview and replacement recruiter was very incompetent. Full disclosure, I did not get the job.

    So the money I paid for the hotel was supposed to be reimbursed and recruiter said he would reimburse me. We went back and forth over a few months with Soo many emails and calls and he had only refunded me like 50% of the value ( like why would you issue in increments?) . 7months since my interview and I still hadn't received my refund and I gave up on the recruiter and asked him to cc his manager. He said he would issue the refund and two days later, he left the company too and nobody picked up my issue?!? Zero accountability....
    Like c'mon man.. is this a sinking ship ? I reached out to many Yahoo(now Oath) recruiters on LinkedIn and only one of them replied (after two weeks). She was able to get my remaining amount reimbursed after I forwarded my email chain with 25+ emails and explaining my helplessness.
     Do not interview for company. I don't think it's ever reasonable to have interviewees beg for their money and beg for 7months?!? Needless to say, this has been my Worst post-interview experience ever.

    I wanted to share my experience to alert potential employees to the shady recruiters who have the worst accountability. If recruiters themselves are so bad, you can imagine the company and it's culture.
