    I submitted application via their career website. It took a couple weeks but a recruiter email me back. She wanted to talk to me on the phone. In that phone call, she asked me typical questions, like a summary of my experience, why I wanted to leave the company, why I wanted to work for Expedia, etc. She also asked me a couple basic programming conceptual questions, like what are the principles of OOP. Then, she scheduled a phone interview with for me. In the phone interview, the guy asked more conceptual questions, like what is the difference between interface and abstract class and what is virtual class. After that, the interviewer asked me to test the "Flying From" textbox on the Expedia.com homepage. Lastly, coding question, write a IsSubString(string originalString, string subString) function.

    Lodging Content Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by an HR recruiter several weeks after applying online. Everything moved very quickly after that point, multiple phone interviews per day over the course of 2 days. I spoke with 4 people total - the recruiter, the manager, and 2 leads. The recruiter was very nice and professional, answered many questions up front which is appreciated when you're going to go through hours of interviews. The manager seemed extremely disinterested for the entire interview, so I was surprised when they contacted me for 2 more interviews, dubbed the "final round" by HR. The 2 leads I spoke with last were very nice, they mostly asked about how I work with teammates and managers. Not many questions about content from anybody, which was strange considering I had a lot of experience with it going in. Overall a positive experience, I would recommend applying online.

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Went through the interview process - started with an initial screening call. 2nd interview was via Skype with a Market Manager from another area. Followed up with a face to face interview with the Area Manager and Market Manager in the location of the opening. All went well, but did not get the job due to over qualification. Process was enjoyable and hope to have another opportunity soon.

    Market Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Expedia in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online and it was a few weeks after until I heard back. I then had a phone interview with a recruiter from their home office mid-week. She followed up and scheduled a second phone interview with another manager on the following Monday. Shortly there after I was asked to meet with their team in person. I met with them twice in their offices. Everyone was outgoing and friendly. I met with several different team members and each had their own different questions and styles of interview.

    Market Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    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

    Media Producer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    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.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty standard questions. A few scenario driven questions, but nothing crazy.   Answer Question

    Market Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    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.

    Customer Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Expedia in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to the hiring manager by a friend who was the hiring manager's boss.
    Probably for this reason, my phone screen was two simple questions: 1. What are your salary expectations and 2. When are you available to to come for an onsite interview?

    The onsite interview lasted about 4 hours. I met with the hiring manager, her boss, two senior members of the team that I would be managing, and a director of a group that would be the customers this team is serving.

    The process was very friendly - they want you the candidate to be comfortable in the interview and they may probe until they get the answer they are looking for. Most questions were of the type: "How would you handle X situation?"

    If you are an introvert, watch your body language. Some managers are trained to pay attention to nonverbal cues.

    The process is welcoming and friendly but don't let your guard down. They have very high hiring standards. Due to the unstructured nature of the questions, it's up to you to go beyond just answering the direct question and to sell yourself through memorable stories and making connections with the interviewers.
