I applied though their career site. A recruiter contacted me after 2 weeks, and scheduled a phone screen. Initial questions were towards my projects and previous roles. Then he jumped in to a coding question.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Decent process with a phone interview and 3 onsite interviews : Submitting resume through a staffing agency or internal recruiter/current Expedia Employee will result in a quick response. For interview preparation, use career cup or other similar online resources. Also, you could use any interview prep book. Practice white boarding of tech questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Long, boring, back and forward for like 3 months before the offer was presented to me. The recruiter was on and off the process during the 3 months. Asked some coding questions. Not super hard ones. White boarding. Went over resumes. Asked a lot details of my previous projects. First presented some really low-ball offers. Every single email between me and recruiter seemed taking over a week to respond. Lucky I wasn't in a hurry to get a job at that time.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    A headhunter got me the interview and managed the relationship with the company. The process was a typical day-long affair with several interviewers, whiteboarding, and a discussion with a hiring manager. Overall, very standard process for the area.
