    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    My interview has 2 stages, one was online coding exercises, other was assessment day in the office. The first part was standard Hackerrank tasks, two questions, you can choose languages. The second part was in their office and contained 2 parts - technical and group exercise. Interviewers and people who helped during the day was very helpful and friendly. At the beginning of each section, we had some 'icebreaker' to meet with team or interviewers.

    Interview Questions

    • 'Icebreaker' - about myself, my experience, interests, etc.
      Coding questions - you are given some problem to solve, standard whiteboard thing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely fast and relatively simple. An online application, a phone interview, an online coding exercise and then an assessment day. Throughout the entire process they were great at communicating and extremely friendly!

    The phone interview was 15 minutes long and it was pleasant, asked a few questions about myself as well as a few relating to my technical work.

    Online coding exercise was fine, they give you ample time to complete it.

    Assessment day was 4 hours long, including a 1.5 hour technical interview involving a whiteboard exercise and another online coding challenge, lunch, tour, and an hour group exercise. Again, it was a relaxed atmosphere and everyone was approachable and friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very organised. I received prompt response after each stage of interviews. First was a 30 min phone call with HR. After that I was invited for 1:1 interview with line manager. Line manager at the end of interview told me that I am invited for final interview. Went to final interview, which was 3 hours with people from different departments. In overall it was fine, just a little bit too long.
    Interview included 1 hour with each manager. They were quite friendly, questions were related to different job situations and some questions regarding your experience and why did you decide to move from one position to another.

    Interview Questions

    • Which projects you was working for, how your experience match a current role

    Data/Insights Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia in September 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online I received a response from HR within a few days to schedule a screening call to assess my suitability for interview. This call was then followed by a coding exercise around forecasting and analysis of the data, to be done in a language of your choice at home and returned after the weekend. Feedback on the exercise was good and I had a second phone interview with one of the managers in the hiring team; the conversation covered my current role and experience handling large amounts of data, skills and knowledge with statistics and ability to use languages such as SQL, R, SAS or even Python. The third call was with another hiring manager from this team and a bit more difficult as it involved situational analytics questions; given a lack of immediate experience with this type of analysis I struggled to work out a solution and was guided to it by the interviewer; disappointingly the call was obviously ended somewhat shortly after that without much desire from the interviewer to go further or even discuss my coding exercise as the first manager had done. I received an email from HR a week later to say I had been unsuccessful.

    Interview Questions

    • Coding exercise to be done in language of your choice (R/Python/Excel/C++); given a set of data you're to forecast a certain number of periods into the future and then provide further analysis as asked in the remaining 4 questions.   Answer Question

    Quick informal 20 minute interview with fairly basic CV based questions with a graduate talent acquisition manager . Would have been nice to have been interviewed in an enclosed space instead of a communal area.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Expedia (London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and had one-to-one interview with HR, the line manager and 6 other stakeholders either by telephone or face-to-face depending on their locations.
    The interview styles vary depending on individual interviewer, some are very casual chat and some are more competency based questions.
    I received the outcome 2 months after the last interview that they went for another candidate.
    The upside of the process is that you would have talked to everyone the post-holder would work with during the interviews and learn a lot about the company and the position. However, it is lengthy and repetitive.

    Software Development Engineer II Interview

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interviewed for two different roles (hotels.com and e-bookers). Role one involved a screening interview with HR followed by a 1.5 hr face-to-face interview at their London offices. Interviewer was engaging, interested, positive and I thought it went well. And then - nothing. I never heard back from them, despite following up. Absolutely puzzling and unprofessional.
    Second interview was a screening call (duration: about 15 minutes) with HR with a very aggressive interviewer who kept interrupting and pointing out that my answers were wrong. He seemed determined not to take me through and was clearly in a rush. We both agreed that it would be best not to take this further.
    Would not recommend.
