    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The phone screening was pretty standard which was followed by an in-person technical interview. It was about an hour long and was pretty standard. Talk about yourself, whiteboard some stuff, do you have any questions. Off the bat the interviewer obviously liked his job and Expedia. Which is a huge plus for me when I interview places.

    Interview

    Erstes Telefon-Interview war sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Zweites f2f Gespräch eher kalt, schwierige Fragen gestellt. Habe mich in meiner Haut unwohl gefühlt, unter anderem weil zu Beginn einige psychlogische Fragen gestellt worden sind, die mich am Anfang sehr verwirrt haben und Einfluss auf den weiteren Verlauf hatten, da ich verunsichert war.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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).
