    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Initially interviewed for a 6 month contract role which involved working on a large project within the Content Team. Due to the short term nature of the role, the interview was very simple with a discussion about my previous employment and degree followed by a short written test. Interviewer was one of the project managers and was very chatty and easy going. However, I've heard that the interview process is a lot more thorough for permanent roles.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview

    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?

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    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..

    Four one-hour interviews with potential future colleagues, covering previous experience.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in November 2010.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.
