    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Travelocity.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed twice, first with just one person and the second time with the same person and his boss. I didn't think the boss liked me but just turned out he was having a bad morning and didn't want to sit in the interview. Very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. I was overdressed in a suit and tie but I'd recommend wearing one even though the corporate culture is business casual.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Travelocity in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview that went well followed by an in person interview. They acted as though they were impressed, and then said they would call me in a few days. Never heard from them and then when I followed up they said they were still in the decision process and that the would get back to me with a definitive and were in a couple days. After that I still never heard from them. I understand not getting the job, but it's unprofessional to promise a response and then just have radio silence.

    Day 1 => I applied for a couple of positions on the Sabre Holding career portal.

    Day 3 => I had a call from the Recruitment team asking for a phone screening.
    Day 4 => Phone screening.

    After working there I realized that this was extremely fortunate as in most cases the recruitment process takes much time!

    Senior Sales Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southlake, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Travelocity in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    (Remote position) Initially interviewed with hiring manager by phone. Then was invited to Southlake, TX to meet with various members of their executive team. Interviewed with hiring manager again, then met with about 5 others throughout the day. Casual discussions about my background and workstyle.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Very strict policy that HR leads salary negotiations. Had no interactions with hiring manager until after it was completed. Sabre is not generous about salary increases and there are lots of "catches" that can prevent you from getting them (ie if you work group is too small, so it helps tremedously to be in a larger dept). Be sure your starting salary is adequate, don't count on the increase.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Travelocity in March 2007.

    Interview Details

    It was a good experience. They have you sit with an agent to get idea of what the job will be like even before a supervisor interviews you, which is something i really liked. I only had the one interview it was in the morning and by late afternoon they called to offer me a postion, which I did accept.

    Negotiation Details
    It is pretty straight foward in what they offer so there is no negotiations.
