Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo.

Interview

It is 2 phone calls, then an on-site. It was a pretty straight forward process, reminded me of Google APMs process. Fair in difficulty. I would also like to emphasize to read prep books.

    Interview

    I applied online and the hr contacted me one week later for a phone interview with a current APM. The interviewer was nice and gave me hints throughout the process.. but that probably wasn't a good sign. Straightforward interview and no behavioral questions were asked.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    The people that interviewed me were very nice. The recruiters and hiring managers were frustrating to deal with. They respond to emails a week late and sometimes I have to send two or three to get a response.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yahoo in September 2016.

    Interview

    After a really good talk with an APM at my school's career fair, I was contacted for a first-round interview.

    During my interview, I was given a very vague prompt, "Design a product for children." From here, I began to ask clarifying questions to narrow down a target audience and find out what kind of product I was to build, but the interviewer, though friendly, told me that he wanted me to just pick a product and design it. I thought I did a relatively good job considering the tradeoffs of all the different, but I guess I made some assumptions that the interviewer didn't like.

    The only thing about the process that I didn't like (aside from not receiving any feedback after my rejection) was that the rude rejection email that I received. Apparently, the "rigor of the program would be a disadvantage to [me] at this point in time." Ouch. That's a bit of a slap in the face as I'm walking out the door.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The process involved 3 phone interviews followed by one on-site interview in Sunnyvale. The first interview was with the recruiter to get a sense of if I was a good candidate for the job. The next two interviews were with current APM's at Yahoo, both of which in their first year. we talked about product on a high level, and then in the first interview talked about high level product thoughts, and the second interview dove into monetization and business strategy for various popular apps used across mobile platforms. The in person interview was meeting with a full time Product Manager who also was in charge of the APM program. This interview focused heavily on the fine details of product, and focused on the decision making process of apps both at Yahoo and by other developers and companies.
