Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Expedia.

Interview Details

Expedia came to our school's career fair, the engineer asked me two basic questions about java, then arranged me for another on campus interview.
The on campus interview last 30 minutes, first talk about what team am I interested in, then a technical question to write on board. Very simple programming question, given an int array, remove the duplicates. The man I met is friendly.
I am waiting for the on site interview.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Expedia in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Internal referral, contacted by a recruiter almost immediately. First round phone interview with a developer (typing code into a google doc). Phone interviewer specifically asked me to code in C++, which was unusual since I indicated my preference was Java.

    One week later was asked to fly out for an onsite interview (expenses paid). Four interviewers, 45 minutes each.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college career fair.

    1. one simple question immediately in career fair. (How can you find the common element of two linked list?)

    2. Then I got a contact by recruiter within a week and scheduled phone interview.
    - short questions for my resume
    - simple coding question (sorry forgot. )
    - what is generic and its advantage

    They wanted to checking if there is any hiring in Data Warehousing team since I have strong machine learning background. But it turns out there is no opporrunity in data teams, so they scheduled one more interview for developer position.

    3. one more phone interview.
    - challenging project
    - Given input list A and B, return non-common items from each list
    follow up: design test cases

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Expedia in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited from a university career fair, and had a subsequent on campus interview and a site interview.
    The campus interview had some brain teasers: Google's 2 egg problem, the burning rope problem etc.

    The site interview had four one-hour parts: coding, design, behavioral, algorithms, and something else that I'm not too sure of.

    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Expedia in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Received an email from recruiter they try to lowball you right away Figured I would go though with the interview anyways since the name is well known.
    Was first given phone interviews. First one was very basic Manager didn't seem to know much about technology. Second call was from a contractor (yes a contractor) Got a feeling they outsource a lot here.
    After I got trough those two I was called in for a face to face interview with the team. No real programming questions asked. The focus is on Logic questions like perfect number and round man whole type questions. They watch you as you try to complete. Completed it as I would program it and they told me they wanted it to be completed as a math question. Also was asked why I didn't wear a coat and tie.
