    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very Quick process! 2 telephone interviews on the same day, 1 at 11:45 the other at 3 with the director. Followed by an interview with 4 different people within the recruitment team two days after. 2 were for half an hour and the other 2 more casual for 15 minutes. I heard back the following morning.

    Senior Manager, Data Science Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR, which was followed by a subsequent interview with potential line manager. I also had to do a case study. Got very little feedback and the whole process took ages. The case study was poorly structured and formulated. I would have expected the company to want to have a face to face interview to get to know me as a person, which did not happen. Queries on what to achieve out of the case study remained unanswered as well. At the end all I was told was they were not going to proceed further without giving me any insight into why. Utterly shambolic and unprofessional.

    Content Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Initially interviewed for a 6 month contract role which involved working on a large project within the Content Team. Due to the short term nature of the role, the interview was very simple with a discussion about my previous employment and degree followed by a short written test. Interviewer was one of the project managers and was very chatty and easy going. However, I've heard that the interview process is a lot more thorough for permanent roles.

    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview

    They requested for a phone interview a few days after i applied. The phone interview was dry and very much like a question answer session vs. a conversation. Made it feel like there were thousands of other applicants and i wasnt important

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty straight forward questions such as long term career plan, why expedia, etc nothing interesting, pretty boring interview :(   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Didnt want to be part of an organization that hires people in such a weak manner. They didnt care about me in the interview, only cared about the questions they had so i figured that even if i was to join they wouldnt care about me so whats the point?

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Not the most comprehensive interview process. Felt like I had to interject to even get a word in, which was quite strange if I'm entirely honest. That said, i did feel valued throughout he process and I enjoy working here.
