    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo (New York, NY (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Typical processing. They asked about behavior and stuffs. But I don't really remember. There should not be a really long section here requiring over 30 words on hiring and interview. It is ridiculous.
