    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Yahoo India (Bengaluru).

    Interview

    Had a very bad experience with Yahoo India. Eventhough lot of people suggested its a sinking ship and not to apply with them, I went ahead. I had two telephonic and 4 technical rounds. The HR informed me that the feedback was positive and they will make an offer soon. Then they ask me to interview with another team. The manager of that team asks me a design question and when I attempt to answer them, he gets up, tells me my basics are flawed, switches off the light of conf room and walks away. Them the HR asks me to interview with another team. After completing 11 rounds (went on for 3 months), they still havent made a decision and they blame the upper management.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions - 25 horses race, tic tac toe etc. Mostly out of careercup website   Answer Question

    Initially picked at Linux Bangalore - had 3 rounds at a stall in IISc, called for a tech round in Yahoo Campus, Mg Road. Great thinking, puzzle solving, challenging teasers in algorithms, data structures and logical thinking. Interviewers guided the way if i missed an optimization and it was a superb learning and enjoyable experience just attending their interview. I didnt get through but it was my most satisfying interview and my impression of the company and their people went up.
