    First step is a timed technical challenge through Hackerrank. You only have 30 minutes to complete the challenge, after which the assignment is automatically locked and your answer is submitted.

    Second step is a live coding challenge with a developer through Hackerrank. They present you with an algorithmic problem and you are tasked with solving the problem. They provide some guidance as you go through the problem.

    Following that you may be invited to a longer 'onsite' interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yelp.

    Interview

    Had an initial screening and was sent an excel exercise where I had to analyze data and make a deck to show my findings and recommendations. I was given a week to finish it, but it shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours. If they like the deck, they invite you to final rounds where I present my findings to the team and answer questions. After, I have 30 minute interviews with 5-6 leads on different teams (i.e., FP&A, consumer, biz, etc.)

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yelp.

    Interview

    Interview process was seamless, the interviewers were kind and understanding. There were two of them. There was role play and you are simply asked to take some feedback and apply to it. Be human during the role-play, not wolf of wallstreet lol.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Was contacted 24 hours after submitting my application online. Spoke to a recruiter, and she invited me onsite to speak to a sales manager. Overall good experience, but after I role played the sales manager gave me some nice feedback and from my experience interviewing with other companies this doesn't result in an offer.

    Account Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp.

    Interview

    Phone screen, followed by 1 hr video interview with 2 hiring managers. Speaking with management is exactly what made me not want to work for this company. They both were extremely disheveled. I understand that everyone is working from home these days, but both managers put in zero effort to even look semi professional or represent their company well. The first manager I spoke to actively talked about how they were looking for other jobs, and the other was extremely unpersonable. I do not expect interviewers to be overly kind, but this manager was almost acting intentionally rude/offputting. Was genuinely interested in Yelp, but now it's a hard no. Yelp should seriously reconsider who they allow to represent their company to prospective candidates because it was solely based of these interactions that I am no longer interested in this role.

    Interview

    Very in depth interview process, with more than one process. Was able to do it out of state to help with the move to a different state. They were able to do everything virtual and over the phone so I had the ability to do it on my time frame
