What people are saying about Yahoo's interview

Check out some of the positive highlights that others have written about their Yahoo! interview experience on Glassdoor:

  • ”Very straightforward. Lots of data structure and algorithm question. The interviewers were friendly and helped with the questions. The interview process took couple of hours. Lot's of white boarding. I will suggest practice question on whiteboard. It will help.”
  • ”The first phone interview was on an array problem. It involved finding lowest unique minimum. The second phone interview was a string DP problem - it was challenging. The interviewer was very kind and gave me extra time to write pseudo code as I came up with another solution (the first one I gave was incorrect) towards the end.”

And here are some of the negative experiences interviewees have reported to Glassdoor:

  • ”Three round, each 45minutes. Did not even have time to have lunch. First round about system design, second half system design, half coding. Third, a coding question which is really hard.”
  • ”It is a phone interview, asked some basic technical problems. The person interviewed me did not ask anything about my resume, just the basic principle I learned in class. I was asked some problem about OS, database and algorithm.”
