Software Development Engineer I Interview
I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Expedia (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.
There are three rounds total. Two phones screens and one on-site interview. In the first phone screen, they just ask about your resume and your experiences. If they think that you are a good match, they will schedule a second phone interview. The second phone interview is a technical one. There was no coding involved when I did mine. They asked very basic concepts and programming problems. I think they just want to make sure that you can code before they invite you to do an on-site interview.
- Basic data structures and algorithms. Also about OOD as well. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in May 2014.
The hiring process was very simple and straight forward. I had a phone screen interview and then called onsite for four one-one interview. The interviews was very simple. all related to Java and web concepts and few white board questions. I had interviewed with 4 different teams. One of the interviewer was very friendly, he made sure that I was comfortable and if I had to take a break. On the other side. one other interviewer was asking me strange questions, I am not sure if he was prepared with all the questions. While I was answering the questions,he was doing some work on his laptop(I am sure not related to the interview). His questions were unconventional and he was himself was not sure what he wants to ask. The other two interviews were simple and nothing out of the box questions were asked.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Expedia (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in June 2015.
I recently appeared for interview for position of SDE-1 at Expedia Gurgaon. The interview process is very lengthy and long at Expedia. They try to think they will become Google or Apple by creating a lengthy recruitment process, which is fake. The interviews were quite easy and I guess the engineers at Expedia did not know have that sound technological background. Some of them were even not interested in taking the interviews. It was not expected from a big company like Expedia where interviewee comes 1 hour late and take the interview for just 5 minutes. Anyways, It consists of 4 F2F rounds and 2 Telephonic rounds. AFTER WHICH I GOT SELECTED. AT expedia, the recruiter expects you to do all the work and follow ups. At expedia, the recruiter and HR are very careless and would not do any work/follow ups. It is the duty of the candidate to regularly follow up with HR on the process, otherwise they will just FORGET your process and reject you. They even don't have any experience in scheduling the interviews. THE RECRUITER AT EXPEDIA ARE SO DUMB THAT THEY WILL KEEP ON OFFERING YOU LOWER SALARY THAN YOUR CURRENT. I got the offer for SDE-1 role, and Recruiter told me that he will release the offer letter soon. I forgot to follow up with him for a week. After a week, when I called him up and asked him for the status, he told me he has offered the job to some one else. HE was "EXPECTING THE CANDIDATE TO FOLLOW UP" on the job offer letter. May be he was "EXPECTING THE CANDIDATE TO ISSUE THE LETTER AS WELL" (SARCASM). Anyways, the recruiter than offered me another role at another team and asked me to appear for a couple of interviews more, which I denied because I was not impressed with the company's behaviour/seriousness in recruiting people and I did not wanted to waste more time on such a stupid people's company. THE RECRUITER WASTED MY 2 MONTHS. My advice to Expedia is "TO HIRE SMART ENGINEERS, FIRST HIRE SMART RECRUITERS."

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in May 2014.
I got approached by senior recruiter from Bellevue for the job in Montreal. 2 telephone and 3 in person interviews later I as onboard! Expedia does select its candidates carefully which contributes to the quality of environment.
- Considering that it's a Dev I position, I didn't get any big surprises during the interview. However I've heard that for higher positions it can be pretty tough on the technical side. Answer Question
Negotiation was pretty short in my case. The initial offer was above my expectation so I just went for it. I did notify the HR and the hiring manager of upcoming vacation that was already planned and they had no problem with me taking 2 weeks within first 2 months of employment.
