    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    They requested for a phone interview a few days after i applied. The phone interview was dry and very much like a question answer session vs. a conversation. Made it feel like there were thousands of other applicants and i wasnt important

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty straight forward questions such as long term career plan, why expedia, etc nothing interesting, pretty boring interview :(   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Didnt want to be part of an organization that hires people in such a weak manner. They didnt care about me in the interview, only cared about the questions they had so i figured that even if i was to join they wouldnt care about me so whats the point?

    Senior Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Expedia in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Quite a long process. I had 4 interviews in total, the last one was a panel interview. The people who interviewed me were friendly but at the same time they probed my CV and experiences in-depth. Overall it was a good interview experience.

    Interview Questions
    • In my panel interview I was asked questions about the business case I presented and questioned about my assumptions and numerical skills, despite the fact I was told in the brief that I did not have to worry about the accuracy of the numbers.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I negotatiated the base salary. Never accept the first offer. When I got promoted I had to push for a salary increase as well. You need to know your value, as Expedia will try and pay as little as possible if they can.

    Not the most comprehensive interview process. Felt like I had to interject to even get a word in, which was quite strange if I'm entirely honest. That said, i did feel valued throughout he process and I enjoy working here.

    Talent Acquisition Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Expedia in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I attended 2 lengthy interviews over a 1 or 2 week period, The latter interview included me meeting with 3 people individulally each for well over an hour.
    I was told I would receive feedback within 48 hours of the interview. After not hearing for over 72 hours I dropped a quick note to request feedback. 4 weeks later I finally got a response asking me to come back in for a final meeting.
    Needless to say I declined the request and found a job elsewhere where the recruitment process was both slick and professional.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer due to the lack of contact for 4 weeks post interview even after chasing numerous times.
    I'd have hoped for a much more professional process and if that's a taste of the interviews recruiters get then I daren't think was interview process other candidates go through..
