    Talent Acquisition, Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    By far the most ridiculous and disgraceful behaviour from a high profile business, I applied for the position online, received an email to say I would be contacted about a phone interview, then 2 days later I receive an automated email to let me know I had not been successful. This is just another example of a badly formed and led recruitment team who don't engage with candidates correctly and prefer to deal with people from behind a computer hidden away.
    what a shame such a business has to endure such internal issues.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Not the most comprehensive interview process. Felt like I had to interject to even get a word in, which was quite strange if I'm entirely honest. That said, i did feel valued throughout he process and I enjoy working here.

    Content Coordinator Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Initially interviewed for a 6 month contract role which involved working on a large project within the Content Team. Due to the short term nature of the role, the interview was very simple with a discussion about my previous employment and degree followed by a short written test. Interviewer was one of the project managers and was very chatty and easy going. However, I've heard that the interview process is a lot more thorough for permanent roles.

    Customer Operations Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Got contacted by the internal recruiter from Expedia for the role end of October. Very awkward conversation with a person who was not native English. Was difficult to understand his questions sometimes.Didn't hear anything before beginning of December with two set up interviews in a row directly after each other the same day. The first interview was with an employee whom just taken on the same role for a different role. The interview was relaxed and not difficult. Shortly before the end of the interview the manager for this group cancelled his appointment with me due to an urgent meeting. I was ensured that I this interview will be rescheduled. After not hearing anything from the recruiter, I followed up with the recruiter. No new appointment has been made. Just a phone call to explain the recruitment process. After making an appointment for this call three times as the recruiter is not aware of the different time zones and could not make out what the correct time was for my zone, he just told me that I was not qualified enough.

    • How I would lead a team and how I dealt with different situations at my previous job.   Answer Question

    Software Development Engineer II Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    There was a telephonic interview, followed by a technical test, then a face to face interview would follow.
    The coding test was about implementing the Berlin Clock. I was accused of copying the solution just because I added a Wikipedia link to the article about the Berlin Clock. I wouldn't work for a company that makes such grave accusations and then it doesn't have the backbone to defend the accusation. It's fair to assume that I won't be buying from Expedia holidays again. One of the worst interview experiences ever.

    Interview Questions

    • very basic questions about previous experience in the telephonic interview   Answer Question
