Senior Account Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
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.
Senior Director, Training Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
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
Very Easy Interview
Senior Recruiter Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Expedia in March 2012.
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 Software Development Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Expedia in October 2012.
Interview Details – It has been very easy going, a first contact by phone, then a single technical interview with two different people. The interview has included a discussion about my current positon, describe the architecture of it. Then a TDD exercise very interesting one indeed. The people was very friendly
Interview Question – It has been easy going, there was no unexpected question. Answer Question
ECommerce Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Expedia.
Interview Details – Thorough but fast, it consisted of four interviews each of an hour in a single day. Communication was strong throughout and an offer made very quickly. The interviews were tough but fair and the end result was a great place to work.
Interview Question – Being pushed on a process as it existed here and forced to question whether the process I was currently using was incorrect Answer Question
Senior Sourcing Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Expedia in April 2013.
Interview Details – Lots of interviews, but they were thorough, thought provoking and personal
Interview Question – "How would you tackle a brand new region...?" View Answer
Negotiation Details – Easy
Senior Director Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
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.
Four one-hour interviews with potential future colleagues, covering previous experience.
Four 30-minute phone interviews with US-based colleagues, again covering previous experience.
Expedia has many MBA/ former consulting staff, so for leadership positions structured analytic skills are highly valued.
Talent Acquisition Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
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..
