    Photo Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Associate Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA (US)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Had another offer on the table so Yahoo! knew they had to move through the process quickly. Spoke with the recruiter one day, the hiring manager the next, then was brought it to speak to 6 different team members in a 3 hour interview block. The people were extremely nice, very casual. The one thing that stood out was one gentleman told me Yahoo! tends to hire folks that are overqualified for the position. This occurred on a Friday then that evening, the recruiter called to schedule an interview with the VP for a Sunday. I finally heard back on Monday (they said they would let me know a few hours within the interview so I waited and waited) and the other candidate they went with was just "off the charts," so pretty much what the interviewer told me. Everyone was real kind and professional...good experience although no offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    Talked to a really nice database backend engineering during a college career fair. He immediately gave me an interview slot for the next day. For the interview, I came in and the interviewer talked about himself a little bit. And then he gave me a question about full/complete binary trees and a brain teaser. They were easy questions but I was extremely tired at the time. He told me later to be less nervous!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yahoo (Santa Clara, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Process was disorganized and chaotic. Their own schedule was not adhered to. A few interviewers were garbled and inarticulate, and could not formulate questions properly. A few simply did not show up. Then some spent most of their time texting while trying to ask questions during the interview.
