I applied through college or university. The process took a week – interviewed at Expedia in February 2015.
1 hour interview. Asked question about finding anagrams. Another question on designing a food ordering system. Overall, the interviewer was nice and gave hints when i am stuck. Look at previous interview experience to get a better idea. If you pass this interview, you will get flied over for an on-site interview.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Expedia in January 2015.
I applied online to an opening and then heard nothing at all from Expedia for 3 entire months. I had written off the prospect entirely when I was contacted by a recruiter. I had a telephone interview with someone I would directly report to 5 days later and then, a week after that I attended a 4 hour interview with 5 different people. The interview was positive and upbeat and everyone seemed to be very receptive. One manager even told me that he really enjoyed my interview responses, felt good about my ability to mesh with the team, and was ready to bring me on board. Five days later, I am contacted by the recruiter to inform me that they had an internal candidate who had been given the job even before my interview day. So, basically, they just wasted my time, dangled the prospect of a better job in front of me, humiliated me by directly stating they were ready to hire me, and then revealed that they never had any intention of hiring me in the end. Really? Shame on you, Expedia.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Expedia (Springfield, MO) in January 2015.
This was my second job interview with this company. I have two complaints about the application process. 1 I have to re-enter my resume for all the jobs I applied for. Since I applied for several in one day, it was very time consuming. 2 They don't get back to you in the time frame promised in the interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Expedia in January 2015.
I got a on-campus interview at the career fair at school, which is the second day of the fair. The question is not very difficult but it was my first interview so I screwed up and didn't consider all edge cases throughly. Took me too long to solve the problem basically because I made some mistakes and had to correct them one by one.

Just did a technical screen by recruiter after 3 days of applying the job. The phone interview was easy. Haven't got chance to do a real interview with Expedia yet.

I applied online – interviewed at Expedia.
Applied online, a week later I received an email to schedule a phone interview, then had a boring phone interview. The interviewer sounded annoyed from the start, as if he was being forced to talk to me. I later heard that sometimes the positions are already filled but the recruiters are forced to conduct a certain number of interviews.

I applied online – interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in December 2014.
I applied though their career site. A recruiter contacted me after 2 weeks, and scheduled a phone screen. Initial questions were towards my projects and previous roles. Then he jumped in to a coding question.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in December 2014.
I applied online and have had an employee referral pushing on it, 8 days after I had a mail of the HR with a document to send back, a phone interview (20min) with the HR 12 days after, a second interview (30min) 1 day after with one of the manager and then a negative answer 13 days after. I worked hard on the document, here are some of the questions: - Why are you interested in working for Expedia, Inc. and most specifically Egencia, an Expedia, Inc. Company? - Based on your current knowledge of the role - why do you feel you would be successful in the Sr. Marketing Communications Manager role - specifically outlining your experience with leading the development of a Company's brand story: owning a social media strat, educating internal audiences... - salary - writing examples The Phone interview with the HR went well, background check, motivations, values.. The PI with the manager was more deep into the skills on this job but she was listening and you have time to convince her. No tricky questions
