    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Yahoo in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    There are three parts. 1. Write code based on a design (actually more like complete the code) 2. Take a test with SQL, Math and Programming questions 3. Discuss your code written at 1 with a Senior Programmer and the Hiring Manager.

    Even though I had to travel by bus for two hours, there was no reimbursement.

    They seemed utterly confused and disorganised as I was trying to reach the recruiter for 10 days. They certainly do not justify their name and I won't apply there again.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions, just a difficulty to stay on the same track with the interviewers as they were asking for something different than what was written at the coding description. They probably need to rewrite that description.   Answer Question
