    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo in June 2010.

    Interview

    Phone screen by recruiter. Did not seem to be a recruiter solely for legal. Phone screen w hiring mgr, in person interviews with team members. Great people, very friendly and smart. Company is going through lots of internal upheaval. This mostly has not affected this dept but morale could have been better. Usual questions about why i wanted to work for the company, culture i like to work in, examples of challenges that i have faced, etc.
