I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Expedia in December 2013.
Interview Details –
Initial communication was an informal discussion with the hiring manager, then contact with the company's executive recruiter. Over the next week, conversations were scheduled with 6 people, including 4 people who reported directly to the hiring manager, one peer of the hiring manager and one employee who would report to the position I applied for.
All along the way, the Exec Recruiter was in-touch to inquire how the process was going for me, and to ensure that I was still interested, and that nothing I learned was causing me to have second thoughts.
Throughout the process, the interviewers were very candid about feedback, which was refreshing and helpful in preparing for the next few conversations.
After the initial gauntlet of 6, I again spoke with the hiring manger, who let me know I would next interview with additional peers of his and his boss.
It was a very thorough and detailed process, and given my tenure with the company, not the first 'loop' I had been through. The results and overall experience were positive.
Interview Question – One of the interviews asked me what the 'first principle' of the problem space was. I had truly never given it thought in those terms before, so it took me a while to come up with an answer. Thankfully, the interviewer was eager to explain the principles of 'first principles' which definitely helped. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was an internal candidate, so negotiation is very difficult given the very strict 'transfer' policies. I was able to negotiate a salary increase, which less than the promotion I applied for, but more than I expected once the promotion was taken off the table.

Interview Details – After a phone screening and a phone interview by team members, I took a day off from my current work to be interviewed at Expedia's HQ in Bellevue (5 hr long interview). One of the upper level managers came into the interview 20 minutes late for his 30 minutes allocated time. Looked something bad happened and asked me a hard copy of my resume. I am sorry, but I am a digital person and I don't print anything out. I apologized I did not print out my resume. He told me that I am not suitable for the role because I was not well prepared for the interview. And he left the room. He probably had a terrible day that day, but the way he treated me was unprofessional. Never expected to experience something like this at an online company. Nice recruiters who respect candidates though. I wasted my vacation day for this interview and I felt sorry for myself. Wasted vacation time = can't book a vacation at expedia!
