    Program Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Very disorganized and unpleasant experience. Started quite standard with an initial phone screening and a conversation afterward with the hiring manager and the VP. Oddly they indicated to me that there were two other roles that I was being considered for that I did not apply to. By the end of both phone interviews (hiring manager and VP) I was told that they wanted to fly me out. Heard nothing from either or the recruiter for 3 weeks. Then received an email message from the recruiter that I was no longer in consideration but suggested I apply elsewhere. Total waste of time, I do not mind not being chosen but the "cone of silence" treatment for so long is unprofessional.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Expedia in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, to an interview located at a job fair. It was a first round interview, with 30 minutes allotted time to speak with a person in management. The whole process was pretty straight forward, with the majority of the time spent in behavioural interview questions. Mostly very broad questions that focused on soft skills that would be applicable to the company/position.

    Media Producer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    The in-person interview was almost a full day worth of meeting different people. I met with a total of 7 individuals in different positions. The questions seemed to be divvied up so at least you aren't answering the same question 7 times.

    My first scheduled interview of the day was supposed to be with an HR person, but they never showed. After the interview, I wrote the HR manager to thank them for the opportunity. After a week or so, I wrote back to hear how the hiring process was going. After one or two more follow-ups, I still never heard back from them with any updates at all.

    Market Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Got an email from HR, and the process (until the final round of interviews) took about 3 weeks. First interview is a screening call from HR, followed by a skype call by a manager, then a face to face interview with the hiring manager. Only during the last interview I was informed about requirements of the position that were not listed on the job description posted on Expedia Jobs website

    Market Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    I went through three interviews. First a screen phone call, had about three questions about revenue management like revpar. Second was a Skype interview with the regional director, pretty standard questions. Third interview was in person at their office. The interview was an hour and was only role play involving sales type questions. I was able to answer most of the questions asked but some where hard to answer solely because I've never been in a market associate position. I didn't like how the interview was only role play for an hour, it doesn't give an accurate picture of the position or my skills.

    From start to finish the interview process took over a month.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Expedia in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Talked to an engineer at a career fair in school. Engineer seemed interested so invited me to a on-campus interview (30 mins long). There, she asked me to describe a project in detail, then told me to implement in-order tree traversal, both recursively and iteratively. 2 days after that, someone on their University Recruiting staff reached out and informed me that I was being invited to an on-site interview, all expenses paid. We picked a date, but about 2 weeks before the interview, the recruiter contacted me and informed me that they were postponing my interview by a week, which is fine.

    I can't talk about the on-site interview, since they made me sign an NDA before starting, which I will honor. The on-site interview consists of 4 1-hour interviews. They focus primarily on technicals, though you're expected to have a basic understanding of Expedia's business model, though not in great detail. The on-site interviews are quite intensive, because they don't really give you a break in between; you're stuck in a conference room with a whiteboard, where software engineers come in and talk to you. The questions focus primarily on data structures and algorithms, though you should know Java programming constructs really well as well. I would say that the on-site interview is surprisingly challenging.

    Associate Market Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Expedia in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    This have been one of the longest processes I have ever experienced applying for a job. I had HR recruiter leave me an message advising me that he wanted to speak with me regarding an Market Associate position, I promptly called him back and followed up with an email but did not get a response until two weeks later. After speaking with HR and going over my qualifications I was advised that I was over qualified for that position and that he thought I would be a better fit for the Associate Market Manager position, I was advised me that someone would give me a call to set up the next faze. After, another week I finally received the email with the time and date for the next interview. The tech portion consists of Revpar questions, math questions etc. I spoke with Bonnie and she was very nice, and although she was giving me role play questions, they weren't hard and I could tell Bonnie was a true professional. Two days later I received a email stating that I passed the tech interview and I will be moving to the face to face faze. After giving the recruiter my availability I was told that I would hear back from him by the end of the business day. After a week of not hearing anything I started to call and email him and in the process I had other recruiters with Expedia reach out to me. However, when I advised them that I was working with someone I was advised they could help me and someone will contact me. After three weeks I received a call that the company had restructured and he was no longer my recruiter but the person that would set this up will give me a call within the next week. I finally received a email stating that their was not have anyone available to interview me because of the holiday weekend.. Two weeks later I finally received my face to face interview and honestly it was a pleasure speaking with professionals, at the end of the interview I was advised that I would hear back within the next few days. Seven days later I received an email that I should hear back one way or the other in a week because they had not interviewed everybody because they were behind... As, of today I am still waiting for an response but I am told by the recruiter to have a little more patience. I am still being considered for the position. I have never experienced anything like this in my life.... Seems like a great company to work for but the process shows me that I have more determination that I thought....

    Interview Details

    Sent in a resume for a pre screen through a college recruiting site. Had a phone interview and in an person interview within 24 hours of each other. The interview was very good. The person conducting the interview was kind and laid back. I felt immersed in the culture of the company and comfortable to answer questions in an honest way.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Expedia in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was recommended for the position through a third-party staffing agency. I met with the staffing agency for an overview of the position, did one phone screen with the hiring manager at Expedia, and did one onsite interview with the direct manager and the program lead. The phone screen consisted of the standard "Tell me about yourself," "What interests you in this position," "Where do you see yourself in 5 years" questions. The onsite interview was less formally structured -- the program lead read my resume, and asked in-depth questions about how I approached my work. Seemed like a positive, balanced office environment.
