    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

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    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.

    Recruitment Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Expedia in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in mid-October, application ignored. Saw the same role relisted in December and re-applied. Received a generic decline email, despite my CV being almost a word-for-word match to the job spec. Sent an email to two senior members of the recruitment team asking for feedback, both of which were totally ignored.

    Saw the same role relisted again in February and sent another message to the (new) listed job poster. Received a reply a month later and subsequently set up an interview with the in-house recruiter, which led to a second interview with the hiring manager two weeks later. During the interview, I was told that Expedia "hires for capability" and "hires for pace" - I resisted the urge to tell him that I had applied to the role 5 months ago and followed up three times before my application was picked up.

    I was told I would receive feedback by the end of the week. After chasing once the end of the week had passed, I received an email telling me that they were looking for someone whose experience matched the requirement exactly and I had not managed a big enough team - so much for hiring "for capability"....

    All in all, a pretty pathetic experience. I literally had to chase these people every step of the way and it still took five months to read a CV and conduct two interviews. I currently manage a recruitment team which turns applications around in an average of five weeks, and yet I'm told I'm not qualified to run this joke of an operation?!? It's hardly a surprise that this role has now been open for six months.
