    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview

    Interview process moved along pretty quickly. Initial phone interview with mostly general questions surrounding previous work experience.

    Next interview was via skype. This interview was more technical with a couple specific questions regarding RevPAR and ADR- nothing too complicated though. Questions were typically presented putting you in a scenario and asking how you would respond in that position.

    Third interview was in person at the local office, met with the person who would be the manager to this role. A couple similar questions to the previous interviews, again asking for examples from your past work experience and asking how you would handle certain situations in the workplace.

    The waiting game set in after the interview process. I did not receive a final offer until a month after my third interview. I did stay in touch and they were very nice throughout the whole waiting process. I reaching out a couple times and they asked for my patience and let me know they were still interviewing and would be sure to get me a final decision when they had it.

    When I finally received the offer I was very pleased, they seem to really care for their employees and presented a good offer as well as awesome benefits and PTO.

    Technical Product Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was what i expected. I first had an online screening where i answered question sent to me via email. Be sure that you're not only applying for the job, but applying to be part of their core beliefs and being part of a traveling company. Know the company you're applying for. Do you're research and align your beliefs. Then i had an interview with the hiring manager. Be sure to describe your history (both personal and career) to the point where it aligns with the job you're applying for. Then comes the panel interviews. Be sure to treat each interviewer as a new interviewer. I know that sound ridiculous but its so important. They all usually have very different personalities and you need to be sure you accommodate to them. If they seem laid back then adjust. If they are all about data and tech, be as straight forward and data driven as you possibly can be.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (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.

    Marketing Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    HR Screen call. 30 minute Phone interview. 6 Person in-person interview loop in Bellevue.

    6 Hour Process. Two 15 minute breaks, separated by 3 hours.

    "Lunch" is provided. You request what you want when confirming your interview time slot.

    For me, my lunch didn't show up. So about 12-1PM someone came in and said oh sorry your lunch never came, do you want to order something else. So after eating breaking at 8:30, I wasn't able to each lunch until 2:30 PM and had 10 minutes to do so while overlapping into an interview.

    Really messes with your thought process and ability to perform when you are starving throughout half the interview.

    At the end I was told that they were going to interview some strong internal candidates from other teams. Eventually I got a call 2 weeks later saying they 'loved' me, but they went with an internal candidate.

    Please be upfront about 'strong internal candidates.' It seems very unprofessional to drop that as I walk out the door from a 6 person - 6 hour interview loop.

    Software Engineer In Test Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was reached out by a recruiter and asked if interested. When I was positive about moving forward, he sent me a coding challenge which was quiet difficult (it included DP problems). I scored quiet well in the challenge so was called in for an in-person interview. Expedia flew me to their Seattle office. There I had 4 interview rounds. In 2 rounds they went over my resume points and asked me to provide approaches based on technologies I mentioned in my resume. Other 2 rounds started with initial talk about me followed by coding question (white board), these were way too simple as compared to coding challenge. The interviewers were very supportive throughout the interview and very helpful at places I got stuck. I received an email next day to interview from recruiter that I have been rejected, when asked for the reason, the recruiter said due to company policy he can not give those details. It was a good experience except the rejection as I was confident that I performed well.
