    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The phone screening was pretty standard which was followed by an in-person technical interview. It was about an hour long and was pretty standard. Talk about yourself, whiteboard some stuff, do you have any questions. Off the bat the interviewer obviously liked his job and Expedia. Which is a huge plus for me when I interview places.

    Interview Questions

    • I signed a NDA so I won't say specifically. But nothing was uncommon. And the interviewer was happy to jump in and work with you instead of letting you flounder.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview

    Was told I got through to the second round of interviews, didn't get back to me for two weeks and said the jobs were closed but there were openings in some cities and they would get back to me. They never got back to me. Prepare for the interviews, they are pretty difficult and you need to know a lot about hospitality industry info. Be convincing. The interviewers were all friendly but they're awful getting back to you in time

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of situational questions. "If you were to try to convince a hotel to partner with us that didn't want to, how would you convince them"   Answer Question

    Network Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume online. Got a response back from a recruiter a couple of weeks later. Scheduled a phone call - recruiter never called. Gave them another shot when the recruiter reached out to me almost 2 weeks after that - recruiter was more than 30 minutes late calling. If not for the fact the company was so short a commute, I would have ended it there. I probably should have. I come in for a face-to-face. I meet the manager, he seems OK. We have a good conversation. At this stage, I'm scheduled for lunch, which they said they would cater for me. I sit in that interview room for almost 40 minutes, no food. Someone comes in and asks me if I'm done eating, to which I mention I Haven't even seen a mint yet. They say they'll go look. I never see them again. I have a technical interview with one of the senior engineers. Well, sort of. It was more a game of stump the chump where he basically asked a bunch of theorycraft questions that one will never encounter in the real world and seemed to exist solely to help him validate his own skillset. I'm annoyed, but do a good job of masking it and power through it. My 3rd interviewer never even showed up. The 4th interviewer (a people manager of some sort who wasn't even with the networking group) and I had a good conversation, but I get the distinct impression that she was just randomly sent in to talk to me for an hour, because she had no real data on the job I was in there for. I leave and resolve to turn down any offer that comes in, if any. Radio silence. Then, 2 weeks later, I get this automated survey asking me how my interview process went (keep in mind I never received any sort of follow up one way or another). It was more than a little bit of a joke, this whole process. Talking with other network specialists in my area, the consensus seems to be that Expedia loves to interview people for roles they're never actually going to fill, roles they're going to move to another part of the country/world where the pay is cheaper, or roles that they are going to pull. They have no respect for a candidate's time, so you should not give them yours. As for me? I interviewed with 7 companies over 2 weeks, and received 5 offers. So pretty sure it wasn't me.

    Interview Questions

    • The network guy asked a lot of questions about multicasting.   1 Answer

    Content Editor Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First round is a 40 minute phone interview directly with the hiring manager. It is a resume run down and a few questions about language skills. Second round is an in person interview with both the hiring manager and a content editor. This interview lasted for an hour and a lot of questions were asked. She also confirmed my language skills, asking me to translate some easy content. I feel evaluated every second during this interview, but they are very nice and they listen to my answers very closely. Overall experience is well, and you just have to show that you are eager to learn and willing to solve problems.

    Interview Questions

    • First round(phone): When you are on the phone with a person and you are trying to run down a list of questions, the person could not understand you and language barrier is apparently an issue, what would you do?   Answer Question
    • Second round: What is your self editing process?   Answer Question
    • Second round: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA).

    Interview

    45-minute phone interview with content team manager, followed by 1-hour interview on-site with content team manager and another content editor. The interview was very personable and seemed to be more about finding out about my personality and whether I could handle the type of work and volume of the work than finding out about my experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The Indian hiring manager went through my background and asked general questions about my Technical Writing skills and experiences. There was no major questions. Instead he told me about the assignment and what my part would be. For me, the job was right up my alley, and I could have done the job blindfolded. But apparently it was not enough to get an offer.

    Interview

    Very kind interviewers, made me feel important and were very respectful. Typical interview questions, one on one is nice because it can be pretty personal. Many behavioral questions, they are trying to get to you know and your thoughts, be sure to be honest and give examples. Be yourself and don't try to be something you are not and I'm sure it will go well.
