    Interview

    Possibly the worst show of recruiting I've ever seen. Process took just over a month, with 10+ day gaps between my emails and the recruiter's replies.

    Started off with a standard non-technical interview with HR, it went well. The woman was nice. I was then handed off to a recruiter in Bellevue. On a Friday, they asked for my availability for the following week, for a technical interview. I promptly replied with many available times. A full week later, I get a reply apologizing for the delay, asking for more available times. Then this series of events repeats itself. You get the picture. By the time it was all said and done, they had filled the position. What a joke, and a waste of my time.

    From the initial interview, it sounds like Expedia pays well and has a few nice perks. Otherwise, though, I have no idea how they expect to hire top talent when they treat their candidates this way.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Expedia (Springfield, MO (US)).

    Interview

    I put my application in and received a call within 2 days for an interview. I went to an interview on a Wednesday morning and received an email within a few hours asking me to come back for a final interview. I went to final interview on a Friday and was called on Monday offering the job. The interview was basic interview questions, nothing sticks out that was unusual. If I could give any tips, it would be to be completely honest with your answers because they can see that. During the final interview several of the same questions were asked as the first. Interviewers were friendly and engaging, easy to talk to and get along with.

    Campus interview, 30 mins, one algorithm problem. The problem is not hard, and the interviewer was very nice. I took 20 mins to write the code on a paper, and we examined the code together. The next couple of minutes he asked some behavior questions like why you want to work at Expedia. Three days later got a email about next step for an onsite.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview

    It was a telephone interview. Started with personal questions, then asked a lot about my previous work experience and especially about my last job, and then I was asked a lot of senario questions (i.e. communication and negotiation with hoteliers/ revenue management). The interview lasted about 20-25 minutes. They also aksed me what salary would be satisfactory for me, and they said that they would get back to me with the result of the interview in 1-2 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • They first asked me about my past work experience, job achievements, skills and then they concentrated on "hypothetical senario" questions (e.g. What would you do if....). They insisted a lot on this kind of questions even though I didn't have previous experience on this position - very stressful - not friendly behaviour.
      Furthermore, I was asked why I am interested to work for the company, what do I know about the company, which are their products - they wanted details.
      They also aksed me what salary would be satisfactory for me, and they said that they would get back to me with the result of the interview in 1-2 weeks.
