    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Yahoo in March 2014.

    Interview

    To put in one sentence - Interviewing at Yahoo! is just waste of your time. Don't do it unless you have nothing better to do. I had 2 phone screens. The first one was simple coding questions and the second one was just a casual chat with the hiring manager. It took them 3 weeks to do these interviews. After that, I was invited onsite to speak with 5/6 people. Again, 3 weeks to get this one scheduled. I cleared this interview and was told by HR that she would present my case to the hiring committee. After 2 weeks, I was told that the hiring committee had rejected. WTF! - rejected for what ? clearing all interviews with the team? The process took 8+ weeks. One funny thing though - in almost each email - HR would ask me to let her know if I had changed my mind re: joining Yahoo!. I mean, do you really want to join Yahoo! or not?

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo in March 2008.

    Interview

    initial communication is very fast. Time between initial approach and the interview is very fast. I liked the way they were so committed to the timeliness.

    There was initially a phone interview followed by onsite one. Onsite has 4-5 interviews, generally covering wide range of topics like programming skills, problem solving ability, puzzles and some design questions.
