    Lodging Partner Associate Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It started off well, I had three interviews in total by phone and in person. The person interviewing me the third time couldn't care less, his attitude was outrageously bad and proceeded to tell me why I wouldn't be able to do the role. After spending time and money going to interviews, I never even heard back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Digital interview, followed by face to face interview. Before the f2f interview the Expedia recruitment team phoned me and briefed me on what to expect and what to prepare for - a rather long list including past experiences, my skills, the current hotel market performance, expedias background, metrics such as revPAR and ADR...etc. So I practised all this beforehand and would say I was very prepared as this was a dream job of mine.
    Next to NO questions came up relating to what I was told to practise. In fact the questions were just asked very randomly, and what must of just come from the top of their heads.

    All in all, I wasn't able to portray what I know, which was extremely relatable to the position. I think they just wanted to know more about me as a person and not why I could actually be good for the role.

    They seemed to be really impressed with me in the f2f interview and I got the impression that it went really well anyway however.
    I was told it would take a week till they contact me.
    2 and a half weeks on, still nothing so I decided to email them. Then 3 days after my email I finally got a short response to say I was unsuccessful at this time, with no reason as to why.
    For such a large 'reputable' (so I thought) company, after 2 stages of interviews it would have been better to get an explanation as to why I'm not good enough for the role.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Passed phone interview with HR and second interview. Third interview was only held by the hiring manager, there were no other people to witness the interview, an HR person or anyone, In order to avoid that the interviewer makes a choice purely based on personal preferences in regards to race/age/gender etc

    Senior Account Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Bad candidate experience.

    The process is long (5 interviews) with multiple different shareholders and very disorganised: they set an interview at 9pm for the day after 9am.

    I received different job related information from the job description, HR manager and hiring manager.

    I have never been asked any question about my ability to sell or to describe how I would react in a sales situation.

    After 5 interviews, the only feedback I got is one sentence via email.

    Very disappointing interview process when you see the great reviews on glassdoor. Be ready to potentially experience the same process, being confused, frustrated and accept very last minute interviews.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in April 2017. Initially started with an email from the internal recruiter asking me to complete a test online following which we would arrange a telephone chat - I got this email in June. Completed the telephone chat and had a telephone interview arranged with a Director in Marketing. Passed this and got a phone call within 2 hours stating they wanted to call me in for a face to face.

    This was done in 2 parts; A further telephone interview with a Senior Manager and a series of face to face interviews and a group presentation. I was given a week to prepare for the presentation. I prepared and went for the interview which I feel went reasonably well - I have no way of telling for sure as it's been over 2 months since that interview and I have had no feedback or communication at all from them.

    I find this rather unprofessional. I can understand large companies having long hiring processes but what I cannot comprehend is the lack of communication for over 2 months after investing 5 hours of my time in interviews and a further 7 hours preparing a presentation.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on the Expedia career website. Started with a recruiting manager arranging a screening call asking very brief details about experience & tech stacks that I've used. Followed by two software developers calling a week later for a first telephone interview where they asked me about the projects I've worked on, why I would like to work for Expedia, and why I want to leave my current position. This then lead to an interview in the Expedia offices with an hour of questions from a backend dev, an hour of questions from a frontend dev, and an hour of conversation about tech with the manager of the whole team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online for 2 different departments and got contacted for a phone call for both positions. A few days later one recruiter cancelled the call saying the position was no longer available.

    The other recruiter scheduled me for 1 HR interview and 1 technical interview. The HR interviewer was 20 minutes late. The interviews were quite generic and I thought they went well. The technical phone interviewer said they would be in touch regarding a take home test. Never heard back from them ever again, despite asking for updates a few times. They clearly did not respect my time. Very frustrating experience.
