    Intern - Software Engineering Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA (US)).

    Interview

    After talking to the on-campus recruiter for a while, I got sent an email asking to schedule a phone interview. In that phone interview, I was asked one basic data structure question about hashtables and one web technology question about packets. I was passed to the next round, which was an interactive coding interview. Unfortunately, this was the first time that I had done an interactive coding session, and froze up a bit. I got the initial algorithm down fairly quickly, but could not fix a few bugs without several hints.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I met the initial person at a career fair. Eventually was contacted by HR for a phone interview. Had a 30 min phone interview. Few days later, got another email saying I would have a second phone interview. It went very well. It was 45 min.

    First interview was more personal, behavioral, a bit technical. The dude asked me what I am interested in, what my experiences have been like.

    Second interview was more technical. First he asked me about some technologies I have used in the past. Some details regarding android development. Then I had to do a coding question in collabedit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume at a career fair at my school and received a tech assessment on the spot. A recruiter emailed me about a week later to schedule a phone interview. The interview consisted of both discussion about my previous projects as well as a couple technical questions. Nothing too unexpected and the interviewer seemed genuinely interested in my previous work and my possible contributions to Yahoo. Received a call a couple days later about an offer. The recruiter and interviewer were both courteous and intelligent. It was a very difficult decision to decline the offer (excellent project assignment and compensation). Overall a very smooth interview process.
