    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Expedia in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from one of the HR's in WA. Asked me about the core principles of OOP, the difference between overloading and overriding, and two cs algorithm questions that weren't too bad. Then, the person calling asked me about a few of my projects. She seemed interested in my UDF Caching project which was done in Scala. It seemed as if she was interested in me, but I guess she wasn't.

    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.

    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.
