    Market Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited through LinkedIn. I had two interviews with recruiters and 3 interviews with senior management. They call you back really fast, but job description is very vague and you really have no idea what you will be doing until you start the job. Some personality questions and lots of skill questions. They were very accommodating on interview time. I was living in another city at that time so all "in person" interviews were conducted in Skype, with the exception of the last one where the senior manager happened to be in the city.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you approach a top earning hotel whose RMD has been decreasing dramatically year over year?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much room to negotiate on salary, but I did got a signing bonus. Benefits non negotiable but it's on par with market.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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 a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Expedia in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through a staffing agency. The process was very quick and got called for an interview a week later.
    Normally I get really nervous when it comes to interviews but when I got there the atmosphere and the people were so welcoming that I had no reason not to.
    So the interviewer came out shortly after my arrival with a professional but laid back demeanor. The interview had a total of about 10 rather simple questions and listened to live phone calls.
