The process took toooooo long ! It took five weeks for Yahoo to give me an formal offer after the onsite interview.

1st phone (10/16) : resume, url shortening design, climb stairs (not DP, print all possible climbing ways)
2nd phone (10/26) : isPalindrome, Split linkedlist, C++ knowledge (inheritance, copy constructor, abstract class, friend class/function)
onsite (11/11) :
        first round : system stack, static variable, 2Sum, print all possible product combination of a number
        second round : anagram, find if negative element exists without using less than, merge two sorted linked list
        lunch : lunch break with team manager
        third round : find median in unsorted array, isBST

Right after the onsite interview, the manager sent me an email saying that everyone likes me there and will proceed me to next step. After two weeks of hearing nothing, I emailed them asking for the update. Then I got an email (11/25) saying Yahoo is moving forward and requires me to answer some questions including GPA, relocation need, sponsor need and do I have other offers. Then came the Thanksgiving holidays...QQ
On 12/2, I recieve a phone call from the team manager saying that my GPA(3.4) is slightly lower than their standard and requires me to give some stories or explanation. She says that she really wants me on her team and will make the best package of me. She says she even gave me the highest ratings. However, I started googling stuff on the internet and found out that Yahoo really takes GPA seriously and the standard is also kind of high.. (3.5). From that moment, I was like a walking dead and all I could do is waiting. I was always trying to look for stories of low GPA Yahoo offer. Looking back,  I dont know how I make it through today lol
On 12/16, I sent another two emails to the hiring manager and also my recruiter asking for the status of my offer. They said they are happy to inform me that I just passed the hiring committee and was currently waiting for the approval of CEO. Unfortunately, she was on maternity leave at the moment due to the birth of her twins. Its almost Christmas and I got another offer due on Christmas. I was so anxious and even found out how MM likes top-tier schools and high GPA. There are even stories of how people got turn down because of low GPA. Now I am like a anxious walking dead !
On 12/22, I emailed my recruiter saying that I cant wait anymore and he said my offer was sent on the 17th! It went straight to the Spam folder lol. So technically, I received my formal offer on 12/17.

Unlike Google or others, referral for Yahoo won't necessary get a response. To my understanding and observation, all the referals will go into a resume pool and only if there is any team find you match to them will they contact you directly. So through out the interview process, there are no HRs involved. The engineer of the team will contact you and interview you directly.

Yahoo does take GPA seriuosly (3.5). GPA requirement for intern offer is even more serious than full-time offer. If the team you interviewed really wants you, then there is a high chance you woll still get an offer with low GPA.

It is such a harsh year comparing to the past. Good luck to everyone with your job search ! Happy Holidays !

Can you tell me what do you mean by "   first round : system stack, static variable, "?

Do you mean they asked you to explain the concepts of system stack and static variable or what?

Also, I am quite interesting on what had happened during the lunch break with team MR?

Not a good time to join Yahoo. They will keep selling their Internet business. In other words, you might be laid off in any moment.

Do you me ...

They asked how to judge if a stack is growing upwards or downwards in the memory.
As for static variable, they asked about the concept and also the scope of it.. 涓浜-涓夊垎-鍦帮紝鐙鍙戝竷
I just tried to chat with the MR like a friend and introduced more of my background. Luckily, I have several projects which are similar to their team projects and they seemed to think I am very matched with them.

Thank you for your reply. . Waral 鍗氬鏈夋洿澶氭枃绔,

Scope, visibility of static variables of is crucial. I kind of remember they can be seen only in the same file in which they are declared and defined.

Indeed, related projects and background give you so much advantages over those who do not have. After all, they are looking for skilled and experienced candidates. . Waral 鍗氬鏈夋洿澶氭枃绔,


BTW, do you need to provides bug free solutions during the phone/onsite interview?.鐣欏璁哄潧-涓浜-涓夊垎鍦

Hope it helps. . Waral 鍗氬鏈夋洿澶氭枃绔,

Also, you can take a look at a GeekforGeeks URL shortening solution.

It is much simpler, no bit manipulation, serves the purpose with hashing . I just DO NOT KNOW if it is. 鍥磋鎴戜滑@1point 3 acres
