    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 6 different people in the finance department in their Bellevue Washington location. Each for 30 minutes. Very long and tiresome. HR person was great and a pleasure to work with. Entire process from first interview with HR, then one on one with manager, then brought in to talk with people in department took about two weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked the normal tell me about your self and what you do in your current role. A couple of them did what if scenarios, and wanted to know how you react. Also asked some questions to test knowledge of accounting and finance.   Answer Question

    Finance Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a phone screen with a recruiter from HR. I had applied online through the Expedia career portal. After not hearing feedback on the role (two weeks after applying), I followed up with the recruiter on linkedin through an inmail - then the wheels were in motion. After the phone screen with the HR recruiter, I was contacted within two days to have a phone interview with the hiring manager. Phone interview with the hiring manager was very positive. A week following the interview with the hiring manager, I was invited to come onsite to interview with several members of the finance team along with one member of the business. Expedia arranged for flight, hotel and incidentals to the Bellevue offices (an excellent experience). The morning of the interview, I met the recruiter, who walked me through the plan for the day, including providing some insightful information on the company and the people who I would be interviewing with. I interviewed with five people (including the hiring manager) and was told that interviews with other candidates were still in progress. The Recruiter told me that by the end of the next week, he would contact me regarding next steps. I ended up not getting the role - which was a bummer. But I have to say, this was the best interview experience Ive ever had (from beginning to end).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Expedia in June 2015.

    Interview

    Got referred by a friend in the company, and heard back within 2 days from the hiring manager and set up a phone interview. The phone interview was very casual, and we talked about my background and career for about an hour. Then I was set up for 3 face-to-face interviews, each lasting about an hour - 1.5 hours. Interview consisted of personal/background info questions and case study/situational questions.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview

    Was told I got through to the second round of interviews, didn't get back to me for two weeks and said the jobs were closed but there were openings in some cities and they would get back to me. They never got back to me. Prepare for the interviews, they are pretty difficult and you need to know a lot about hospitality industry info. Be convincing. The interviewers were all friendly but they're awful getting back to you in time

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of situational questions. "If you were to try to convince a hotel to partner with us that didn't want to, how would you convince them"   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Expedia in January 2015.

    Interview

    I only had a telephone interview. It was directly with the hiring manager. Very bright guy. At first they ask standard question, then they go into cases. Cases test your analytics but also your understanding of the business - they are relevant to Expedia's business. If you are unfamiliar with the business (my case) you might make wrong assumptions and go down the wrong path.

    Interview Questions

    • Cases. You need to understand their business model or figure it out on the fly   Answer Question

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Expedia (Chandigarh (India)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Company came to campus for hiring. They were good in the starting, but their HR sucks. They don't know how to do hiring. I passed through all the rounds with another 5 students. They asked all us of to wait for a few hours for the results. So we waited. After a while they called out everyone except me and told them they got an offer. They didn't even mention anything about me. After that they just left from their without any word. I even sent them an email asking what was that and I still haven't heard a word from them since. Its really disappointing to see such a company having poor HR staff.

    Director Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Six interview meetings with various internal groups. Seemed to be going very well. The person that I would be working for seemed to be a good fit. HR was final meeting. I was then advised that I didn't have enough of a tech background. Since I was working for a very similar company in the same job, it must have been something else, but I was not provided any specifics.

    Interview Questions

    • The first meetings had many technical questions, which seemed to go well. The final meeting with HR seemed to be a very casual meeting, which appeared to be more of an analysis of personality fit. This was difficult to determine what was being evaluated.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The Indian hiring manager went through my background and asked general questions about my Technical Writing skills and experiences. There was no major questions. Instead he told me about the assignment and what my part would be. For me, the job was right up my alley, and I could have done the job blindfolded. But apparently it was not enough to get an offer.
