    Performance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I was reached by a former colleague about an open position at Expedia. Applied online and got contacted after a week or so. Had one phone screening interview with the HR recruiter and one phone interview with the hiring manager in the first week.
    A week after that, got contacted by the recruiter to arrange the remaining interviews. Since I was based abroad at the time, all were phone interviews. 4 phone interviews of about 45 minutes were scheduled. One with an engineering director, another one with the hiring manager and two with technical peers.
    The meetings with the director and hiring manager were very relaxed and just went through a few problems they were having and how I could help with that.
    The first technical interview was relatively easy and focused on main performance engineering standards and processes with a couple technical questions about Java. The second technical interview was focused on functional testing, which is not the position I applied for and have little knowledge about. Asked a few questions about test cases for a theoretical application and with the little knowledge I have on that area I managed to list a few positive, negative and non-functional test cases, but explained that this was not my area of expertise.
    2 to 3 weeks after the interviews, the recruiter contacted me with the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Expedia (Miami, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through the website. It took about two weeks to set up the initial interview due to scheduling conflicts on the recruiter's side. We communicated via email. The first call was a video screening that lasted about 20 mins. The recruiter said I did not have the hotel or revenue management background for the position but recommended I apply for the Market Associate level position. There are no current openings in my area.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Seattle, WA) in November 2015.

    This was a very pleasant interview process. I was reached out to by a recruiter who was wonderful to work with. Everyone I encountered at Expedia was very welcoming and communicative. The interview process itself included a phone screening, an online application, some written questions, a one-on-one technical interview, and a final technical loop.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The phone screening was pretty standard which was followed by an in-person technical interview. It was about an hour long and was pretty standard. Talk about yourself, whiteboard some stuff, do you have any questions. Off the bat the interviewer obviously liked his job and Expedia. Which is a huge plus for me when I interview places.

    Interview Questions

    • I signed a NDA so I won't say specifically. But nothing was uncommon. And the interviewer was happy to jump in and work with you instead of letting you flounder.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Expedia (Chandler, AZ) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was good, comfortable and relaxed. There were times it was serious questioning but nothing extremely hard or confusing to answer. It felt more like a personality match more than a technical interview.

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Everyone was very friendly, but some of the interviewers were great developers I'm sure, but not exactly great interviewers. They were all mostly nice and easy to get along with, but I could tell some of them had not interviewed people before and some of their questioning was vague and unclear.
