    Interview Questions
    • Towers of Hanoi. This wasn't hard but it wasn't real world either. I'd expected an actual business domain relevant problem for a senior level position.   Answer Question

    Market Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited through LinkedIn. I had two interviews with recruiters and 3 interviews with senior management. They call you back really fast, but job description is very vague and you really have no idea what you will be doing until you start the job. Some personality questions and lots of skill questions. They were very accommodating on interview time. I was living in another city at that time so all "in person" interviews were conducted in Skype, with the exception of the last one where the senior manager happened to be in the city.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you approach a top earning hotel whose RMD has been decreasing dramatically year over year?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much room to negotiate on salary, but I did got a signing bonus. Benefits non negotiable but it's on par with market.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Expedia in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through a staffing agency. The process was very quick and got called for an interview a week later.
    Normally I get really nervous when it comes to interviews but when I got there the atmosphere and the people were so welcoming that I had no reason not to.
    So the interviewer came out shortly after my arrival with a professional but laid back demeanor. The interview had a total of about 10 rather simple questions and listened to live phone calls.

    Just did a technical screen by recruiter after 3 days of applying the job. The phone interview was easy. Haven't got chance to do a real interview with Expedia yet.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult thing for me is to understand recruiter's English speaking through his India accent. No offense, I am just not familiar with foreign accent yet.   Answer Question

    Fraud Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, a week later I received an email to schedule a phone interview, then had a boring phone interview. The interviewer sounded annoyed from the start, as if he was being forced to talk to me. I later heard that sometimes the positions are already filled but the recruiters are forced to conduct a certain number of interviews.

    BI Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Process was standard for the industry. Contacted by recruiter to provide additional information, phone screen with the hiring manager and then brought in for a day to interview with a wide range of folks. Planning by HR was a little off - the interview was pushed back and I wasn't notified, confusion over where the interview would take place etc, though they were very nice and gave me some tips before the actual interview started. Sat in a window-less tiny space while five different folks came and asked essentially the same sets of character questions. Not really any technical type questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Not really any difficult technical questions. Walked through a business case of measuring and improving adwords profit, though the job was more on reporting.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Position wasn't a great fit for me and felt the department was a high-stress / low-reward type of environment.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Expedia in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied though their career site. A recruiter contacted me after 2 weeks, and scheduled a phone screen. Initial questions were towards my projects and previous roles. Then he jumped in to a coding question.

    Interview Questions

    Senior Marketing Communication Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Expedia in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and have had an employee referral pushing on it, 8 days after I had a mail of the HR with a document to send back, a phone interview (20min) with the HR 12 days after, a second interview (30min) 1 day after with one of the manager and then a negative answer 13 days after.
    I worked hard on the document, here are some of the questions:
    - Why are you interested in working for Expedia, Inc. and most specifically Egencia, an Expedia, Inc. Company?
    - Based on your current knowledge of the role - why do you feel you would be successful in the Sr. Marketing Communications Manager role - specifically outlining your experience with leading the development of a Company's brand story: owning a social media strat, educating internal audiences...
    - salary
    - writing examples
    The Phone interview with the HR went well, background check, motivations, values..
    The PI with the manager was more deep into the skills on this job but she was listening and you have time to convince her.
    No tricky questions
