    Recruiting Coordinator 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 April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Probably one of the best interview experiences I've ever encountered. First phone screen was comfortable and natural. Encountered some delays in getting an interview schedule. I had to reach out to verify it was confirmed, etc. Given adequate info in my interview confirmation (i.e. parking, directions, dress code). Reception was busy and seemed rushed - not the best first impression. My interview loop was changed at the last minute, so my greeter was replaced with someone else. Loop was efficient and friendly - not intimidating which I think leads to more authentic representation of the person. No questions repeated - interviewers seemed to know not to overlap areas. One interviewer offered to show me around the work space so I could get a better feel for the office environment and explained the building layout - that was really nice. Loop consisted of 4 people, one via conference call.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Friendly interviewer - did not feel intimidated despite high ranking with company. Half "get to know you" questions and half "case interview" style question. Be prepared for a case interview question but don't stress too much over it. Just be confident in your answer and stick to your gut reaction in answering it.

    Interview Questions
    • Case interview question dealt with letting a CEO know whether or not data supported his/her new initiative. Interviewer might give data that does not support initiative - do not be afraid to say no.   Answer Question

    Software Developer Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    The interview was about 45 minutes long. Basic Java questions were asked. The questions were not too hard. Basically you have to work out the problem on a white board and it can be stressful. Be sure to understand the question correctly and let the interviewer follow your thoughts. The interviewer was friendly.
    I do not think they prepared much for the first round interview. Maybe they just want to find out if you can code or not. There is no advancement of the problem, and problems are unrelated.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Expedia in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    1 phone interview with Principal Product Manager. It's important to note that I feel strongly my interview was not an interview at all, but more for information/idea sourcing, which is becoming increasingly common among companies. The actual job opening, may or may not have existed, but it was clear from right off the bat, the interviewing manager was looking for monetization inspiration about a future product offering they were prepping to put out. Every question revolved around the new product feature, and the lack of hiring sincerity was fairly obvious.

    Software Development Engineer Intern Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Expedia in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Campus interviews, 1 on 1 with white board coding. Simple problems using Binary search tree traversal and binary search for a scenario. Interviews went well and got invited for onsite interviews at Bellevue HQ. It was challenging and fun; 3 back to back interviews. Two interviewers were fun, while one of them was uptight with hardly a smile. Expedia is quite generous in reimbursing the travel/lodging costs. $75 per day on meals.
    Got the offer within 10 days. The pay rate is the best part, exceeds expectations. The whole process was quick, efficient and enjoyable.

    Interview Questions
    • 1] Given a series of data, cluster it into sub components. It was for a specific use case which was fun to solve. Prepare HashMap well.
      2] Given 2 rectangles, find out the smaller rectangle which is formed by the intersection of the larger rectangles.
      3] Given a 2D matrix filled with 1s and 0s, find out the number of connected components of 1s.
