    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    I put my application in and received a call within 2 days for an interview. I went to an interview on a Wednesday morning and received an email within a few hours asking me to come back for a final interview. I went to final interview on a Friday and was called on Monday offering the job. The interview was basic interview questions, nothing sticks out that was unusual. If I could give any tips, it would be to be completely honest with your answers because they can see that. During the final interview several of the same questions were asked as the first. Interviewers were friendly and engaging, easy to talk to and get along with.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Campus interview, 30 mins, one algorithm problem. The problem is not hard, and the interviewer was very nice. I took 20 mins to write the code on a paper, and we examined the code together. The next couple of minutes he asked some behavior questions like why you want to work at Expedia. Three days later got a email about next step for an onsite.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Expedia in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from one of the HR's in WA. Asked me about the core principles of OOP, the difference between overloading and overriding, and two cs algorithm questions that weren't too bad. Then, the person calling asked me about a few of my projects. She seemed interested in my UDF Caching project which was done in Scala. It seemed as if she was interested in me, but I guess she wasn't.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Expedia in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied on Career Fair. Asked for a on campus after career fair. Then scheduled on site after 1 month. On campus interview was quite easy. You need to write a stack and flatten a binary search tree. Onsite interview was related to data structure and algorithm. The interviewer were nice and helpful. I believe my last interviewer knew I'm pretty tired at that moment and asked me some Q&A questions.

    Interview Questions
    • I choose to respect the NDA. However, the questions were related to data structure and algorithm. It should not be a problem if you are an algorithm master.   Answer Question

    Lodging Operations Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Process started out smooth and fast, yet evolved into a delayed mess over a period of 2 months. Constant schedule changes and last minute interviewers constantly rescheduled their availability. Communication with recruiter was horrific and often emails and calls were unreturned for many, many days. Went through the entire interview process only to find out the position had already been filled about a few days before, even when HR/Recruiter was STILL CONTINUING the interview process. Total and absolute nonsense and a total waste of time. A few of the interviewers also didn't seem to excited to conduct their interview, with often some of them saying "Well I don't have much to ask you so..." and the interview would consist of questions that don't really let you talk about anything pertinent to the job. Nonsense.

    Expedia claims their interview process is quick, but don't pay attention to that. As others have noted here, it can take forever and often you won't get anywhere. And yes, the stories here of people having to chase down their recruiter just for a response or clarification on something is true If you are undergoing the interview process with Expedia, be prepared to WAIT and WAIT.

    Overall, horrible experience and a waste of time. Don't count on Expedia being your only hope, continue interviewing with many other companies while interviewing with Expedia.

    *Interview process usually consists of an email from recruiter, followed by a phone screen, then about 4 or 5 interviews either in person or over the phone with several different people relating to your position.

    Interview Questions
    • Depends where you are in the interview process, but usually they are open-ended and that is assuming the person interviewing you is remotely interested in doing their job properly.   Answer Question
