    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo (Champaign, IL (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    At a college career fair. Talked face to face with the recruiter. Pretty much depended on how strong your resume was. Recruiters were very chill and easy to talk to. They asked you a technical question on the spot

    I was selected for on-campus interview from my university's career fair. I had a conversation with someone on the mobile team. We also had a fun dinner party right before technical interviews. I was asked 5 Leetcode medium-hard questions. Yet to receive results. Overall, a very good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    I applied via referral and a phone screen was scheduled. I answered questions in both phone screens, and even ran the code in the editor. It was working out to be fine. I even optimised on the solutions and discussed the complexities. In one of the solutions, I was asked the complexity of creating a priority queue(binary heap) of size n and I answered O(n) because everyone gets confused in this but I remember this from my algorithms course that it takes linear time as opposed to common misbelief of O(nlogn) time. But when I said so the interviewer asked me twice whether I was sure, I was like yeah I am sure and explained how it is O(n) but he didn't seem to believe me. But anyway, I continued and gave the optimal solution. And then after two phone screens I got a negative response. I do not know if I should be happy or sad after this.

    Application

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

    Interview

    One of my friends had put my resume in the referral portal and I was contacted by a Manager over the phone to schedule a video interview. Then 5 minutes before the scheduled time I got an email that the interview was being postponed to next week as the engineer who was to take the interview was under the weather. The same thing happened twice and my interview was never conducted and the manager stopped replying to my emails.
