I have been working at Expedia full-time (More than a year)
Great perks, great people, challenging problems
Sometimes Expedia can be a little too US-centric
Advice to Management
Keep working to treat people well, keep hiring great people.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Sydney) in July 2016.
Had a call from he, mostly asking what I wanted to do, why etc. Really more of what I want from expedia.
Then had a phone interview with my potential manager, was pretty relaxed, asked me what are the FSMO roles and why they are important as well a few other simple tech questions.
Some standard culture fit questions etc.
Came in the next day for some on site interviews. 3
Interview over video conference with two potential colleagues then in person with potential manager, video conferenced to his boss.
Then finally an in person interview with another potential colleague in Sydney.
It was very casual, well delivered; felt like it was more about getting to know each other.
Normally I negotiate about 10% up on the offer or 3-6% more than I want then wait for a counter offer near that Mark. Here I didn't negotiate, they pay above market rate.
