    Interview Details

    Candidate needs to submit application by providing update CV. Recruiter will screen the CV and if on paper it fits the job profile, recruiter will connect with candidate for a phone screen. If after phone screen, recruiter finds the candidate suitable, then recruiter will send CV to the hiring manager for the first interview. If candidate seems fit, the candidate will be put through to interview loop with a few more interviewers in order to provide well-round feedback. On completion of the loop, the hiring manager will make hiring decision and recruiter will proceed to offer stage.

    Lodging Operations Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Process started out smooth and fast, yet evolved into a delayed mess over a period of 2 months. Constant schedule changes and last minute interviewers constantly rescheduled their availability. Communication with recruiter was horrific and often emails and calls were unreturned for many, many days. Went through the entire interview process only to find out the position had already been filled about a few days before, even when HR/Recruiter was STILL CONTINUING the interview process. Total and absolute nonsense and a total waste of time. A few of the interviewers also didn't seem to excited to conduct their interview, with often some of them saying "Well I don't have much to ask you so..." and the interview would consist of questions that don't really let you talk about anything pertinent to the job. Nonsense.

    Expedia claims their interview process is quick, but don't pay attention to that. As others have noted here, it can take forever and often you won't get anywhere. And yes, the stories here of people having to chase down their recruiter just for a response or clarification on something is true If you are undergoing the interview process with Expedia, be prepared to WAIT and WAIT.

    Overall, horrible experience and a waste of time. Don't count on Expedia being your only hope, continue interviewing with many other companies while interviewing with Expedia.

    *Interview process usually consists of an email from recruiter, followed by a phone screen, then about 4 or 5 interviews either in person or over the phone with several different people relating to your position.

    Interview Questions
    • Depends where you are in the interview process, but usually they are open-ended and that is assuming the person interviewing you is remotely interested in doing their job properly.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer In Test - II Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Expedia in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    01. HR informed me 2 days in advance that a series of 4 telephonic interviews are scheduled over spanning across 2 days.
    02. HRs were friendly through out the process and kept me updated.
    03. After two levels of interview, they informed that they won't be able to proceed with my candidature further.
    04. They shared the feedback of the interview on request. That was helpful.

    Interview Questions
    • Contrary to my assumptions, i found the interview pattern simple. Each interview lasted for 1 hour and it consisted 3 questions precisely.
      a. Quick Question about OOPS.
      b. Question related to functional - preparing a exhaustive test case list for a typical Web service architecture.
      c. Coding Question - A typical challenge was thrown associated with arrays, matrix and they expect to arrive with design and coding with in the stimulated time.

      Trust me, they expect the fine tuned code with in the first attempt itself. No excuses.
      Interviewers might give some focus points if they think if you are missing something or lacking - try to seek that point and explain about that area. You can't skip that point.
      Preparation around coding challenges around arrays, strings, matrix and linked lists would be helpful.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Interview process took about 1 month, was told that I would get a response in 5-10 business days. It took about 25 business days. Received no feedback or response initiated by them. I made 4 attempts to get a status update before finally getting a response. While the experience leading up to the response was great the after was one of the poorest that I have ever experienced. No follow through with time line commitments that were made during the interview process. Was promised additional feedback, still waiting but at this point not expecting it. They seem to be empty commitments.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Expedia in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I got a on-campus interview at the career fair at school, which is the second day of the fair. The question is not very difficult but it was my first interview so I screwed up and didn't consider all edge cases throughly. Took me too long to solve the problem basically because I made some mistakes and had to correct them one by one.
