The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Expedia in October 2010.
Interview Details –
I was contacted by the recruiter via email within days of submitting my resume. The scheduling of the interview was very prompt. I was told to reserve about 6 hours for the day of the interview. The actual time taken was 5 hours.
I met with the hiring manager, a peer of the hiring manager, the supervisor for the hiring manager, a peer program manager and a peer at my position.
Everyone was very well informed on the business model and expected a level of understanding of the space Expedia operates in. So make sure to research the company, the business process and figure out how your career experience has prepared you to work at Expedia.
The peer interview was a bit unpleasant and the person was somewhat confrontational. He was more interested in demonstrating his intelligence than validating my competence. If you have any questions, feel free to ask for clarifications. It also gives you some time to process your answer without having extended periods of silence.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Expedia in July 2008.
Interview Details – It is microsoft like style interview. Most questions were about processes, negotiation skills, and couching developers. Expedia uses offshore development centers, so a lot of questions were in offshore management. The company used to be Program Mangers heavy, so I was asked to sketch a spec , and collect requirements for a sample project. As a development manager, I expected coding questions, but the interviewers said that they believe in my coding skills because of my previous employers.
