    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was actually quite good. Everybody from the telephonic round to the final interview with the senior manager were courteous, amicable, transparent & friendly. I was at ease through out the whole process. It began we me applying on an online job portal, then I received a telephone call from the HR & scheduled an interview after the preliminary questioning. The first round in the interview was an online aptitude test, after that an interview with one of the experienced members on the Ad Ops team & post that an interview with the Senior Manager. I felt welcomed & comfortable with the whole process.

    Interview Questions
    • I did expect the interview to be tough as this was my first job but since I was transparent from the beginning about my inexperience, I was able to handle the questions with a bit of common sense & logic. They provided case studies & asked how I would handle the situation & what kind of decisions I would make under certain model situations. This didn't require any knowledge in the filed of advertising just needed to employ quick thinking & creativity.   Answer Question
