    Associate Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Sydney) in July 2016.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • standard technical questions, there were a few odd ball "thinking questions" I won't tell you the answers, just try to answer every question, if you can't explain where you'd go to get the information necessary to answer the question.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    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.
