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.

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.

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.
- Most difficult thing for me is to understand recruiter's English speaking through his India accent. No offense, I am just not familiar with foreign accent yet. Answer Question

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...
- 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
- do you want to go to the next step ? 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA).
I had a phone interview two weeks ago. I was told I made it to the next round and would receive more information the next day. That was two weeks ago. No reply to two emails sent to the recruiter asking for an update. I'm frustrated.. I really want to work for this company but I am not impressed about the process.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in November 2014.
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.

I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Expedia.
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.
