Systems Engineer II Interview

Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in August 2012.

Interview

I was first contacted by a recruiter, who confirmed the information on my resume and setup my phone screening. The interview process started with a phone screening by the hiring manager, lasted about 45 minutes, and included questions about my past experience and some basis technical questions. The onsite interview consisted of five one-hours interviews held at Expedia’s headquarters in Bellevue and was completed by my peers, the hiring manager, and the director of the group. The on-site interview also included questions about my past experience, but added more advanced technical questions along with culture question to see how I would fit into the company.
