    Interview

    The hiring process was very simple and straight forward. I had a phone screen interview and then called onsite for four one-one interview. The interviews was very simple. all related to Java and web concepts and few white board questions. I had interviewed with 4 different teams.
    One of the interviewer was very friendly, he made sure that I was comfortable and if I had to take a break. On the other side.
    one other interviewer was asking me strange questions, I am not sure if he was prepared with all the questions. While I was answering the questions,he was doing some work on his laptop(I am sure not related to the interview). His questions were unconventional and he was himself was not sure what he wants to ask.
    The other two interviews were simple and nothing out of the box questions were asked.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Expedia Group (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There are three rounds total. Two phones screens and one on-site interview. In the first phone screen, they just ask about your resume and your experiences. If they think that you are a good match, they will schedule a second phone interview. The second phone interview is a technical one. There was no coding involved when I did mine. They asked very basic concepts and programming problems. I think they just want to make sure that you can code before they invite you to do an on-site interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic data structures and algorithms. Also about OOD as well.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Expedia Group (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for this position online in February, 2017. Got an e-mail from a recruiter in 2 weeks with a link to an online Coding Challenge and I had two weeks to complete it. You need to complete the challenge successfully for continuing the interview process.

    The online Coding Challenge(HackerRank) had only two questions. The first question was a basic Object Oriented Programming question(very basic) and the second question was a programming question which was of medium difficulty. The second question needed some time and thinking. It was not very easy, but do-able. I would strongly recommend that you practice well before starting this challenge.

    I was later informed to attend a technical on-site interview. There were three rounds, each scheduled for about an hour. The interviewers are VERY VERY friendly. They were genuinely helpful and wanted the candidates to perform well. There were three rounds, an Algorithm round, a data structure round and a design round. Personally, I found the algorithm and the DS round to be of average difficulty and the design round to be tough. All the three rounds were a mixture of both behavioral and technical questions(3:2). I did not practice a lot of design questions and I was not very confident in that round.

    Due to the NDA, I will not be able to disclose the questions. However, I would strongly recommend the following:

    1) Interact very confidently and make sure you know what you're talking about. Expedia is a company with great culture and the interviewers make sure that they hire only those candidates who would blend in this culture. Getting an offer is not determined only by the fact that you could answer the technical questions correctly, but also by the way you interacted with the interviewers. Understand every question and make sure you've understood the question completely before answering.

    2) Make sure to practice a lot of question on CTCI and make sure to go through all the questions on Glassdoor. This is a very important point. I wouldn't have got the offer without the help from Glassdoor. I cannot thank Glassdoor enough.

    3) Do not panic if you are not able to answer any of the programming questions They don't need a solution. They need to see how you think. So talk, talk, talk and talk. Make sure you let the interview know that you are THINKING and not panicking. Also, make sure to understand the hints given by the interviewer. They will give you hints if you are stuck.

    4) Make sure to practice on a white board before you interview.

    5) Read point 2 again. If you have more time, please practice on LeetCode, HackerRank and geeksforgeeks.

     All the best and Good luck.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia Group (Bellevue, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, then contacted by a recruiter after 3+ weeks. No response for 1 week, then scheduled a technical phone screen.

    Received the call 24 hrs before the scheduled time, so I rescheduled the call to next day. Finally received a call 20 mins late.

    Then no further communication from Expedia, not even a reply to emails asking for status. A very negative experience overall.
