Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.

Interview

HR contacted for a phone screen about a month after I applied. The process after that went fairly quickly and smooth. Got another phone interview with the hiring manager after a couple of days and was brought in for an on site interview soon after. Interviewed with 5 interviewers on site.

Interview Questions

  • Nothing out of the ordinary. Mostly behavioral questions and only one technical question on FP&A.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email by a recruiting coordinator who asked a few questions by email, such as why I would be a good fit for the position, and what my salary expectations were. A phone interview was set up, which lasted about half an hour. I was asked to describe my past experiences and asked about specific skill sets I possessed, such as Excel. I was a bit surprised when I was told about the salary and benefits during the call - I thought it was too soon to discuss it. I didn't feel like I struck a good connection with the recruiter, since the interviewer stuck to a seemingly standard list of questions and showed no interest in my answers. I waited for 2 weeks before emailing to inquire about the results, and was then told that they'd found more suitable candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I have applied for a position online, and received an email from a recruiter about 5 days later to let me know that position was already filled, but that they had another similar position currently open for which I might be suited if of interest to me. After reviewing position's requirements, the initial phone interview was arranged with a recruiter. The recruiter was not a native English speaker and I did have to ask him to repeat a few questions due to my inability to understand the accent. Having been working in finance industry for a little while, I have had quite a few interviews under my belt - I thought this one went quite well, and the questions were more general rather than specific. On a side note, it was probably the least professional interview I have had and maybe it had to do with the difficulty of understanding the recruiter, but I also thought the recruiter was not as professional or organised as any of the others I came across and had difficulty answering my questions about the position and the company and also seemed a bit confused on a few things. I received a rejection email 3 days after the phone interview took place, mentioning that there were better qualified candidates. Fair enough! But if I am totally honest, I think this is not something that recruiter could determine from the conversation that was had. Maybe it was just a personality thing - I'll never know. But I was really put off by this experience that I am unlikely to apply for any other jobs with Expedia. Shame really as it has been awarded best place to work in the UK. But first impressions really do matter and it goes both ways - and the impression I got of this company was not a very positive one.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me more about your professional experience that I would not be able to find on your CV; within last year, tell me about one new thing that you have learned; tell me about one thing / goal you set for yourself this year, etc. And then the usual - what's your current salary, notice period with your current employer, how are you eligible to work in the UK, etc.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Expedia in January 2008.

    Interview

    Meet lots of people, get asked some really strange and repetitive questions, and then have no clue as to whether they actually like you or not. This is the norm at Expedia. The meetings are generally disorganized and the hierarchy structure is flat so don't count on much in the way of promotions either. They give you a decent sign on bonus but after that your chances for bonuses and stock is nill since you're not a developer.
