    Took almost 3 months from start to finish. interview day was long, no breaks given and people were back to back x 6. Then took almost a month to be told no offer. Was told a few times they haven't decided yet, Granted it was over the holiday season but they just didn't seem like they had their act together.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Expedia (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

    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 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.
