Senior Account Manager Interview

Senior Account Manager
London, England (UK)

I applied through an employee referral and 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 Question – 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.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Expedia in March 2013.

Interview Details – This was the slickest process I have ever seen. Positive, enthusiastic and fab recruitment team. 8 interviews in total but by the end I had totally bought into the brand and the people.

Interview Question – I found the interviews to be more of a discussion about the value I could add, rather than competency based questions.   Answer Question

Interview Details – 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.

Senior Director Interview

Senior Director

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Expedia in December 2010.

Interview Details – Initial discussion with recruiter.
One hour discussion with hiring manager: CV background plus case studies using current examples of business challenges.

Expedia has many MBA/ former consulting staff, so for leadership positions structured analytic skills are highly valued.

Talent Acquisition Interview

Talent Acquisition
London, England (UK)

I applied through a staffing agency and 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 Question – What's the most novel recruitment process you have gone through to fill a role.   View Answer

Reason 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..
