    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HomeAway (Bellevue, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Was flown to Bellevue for onsite interviews. HomeAway was recently acquired by Expedia and the Bellevue office is brand new (originally a part of Expedia). So, the actual onsite interview process there is a bit awkward as you'll be interviewed by some employees face-to-face, including Expedia veterans, and, for some reason half of my interviews onsite were over Skype.

    Interview Questions

    • Accept an integer as input and output the corresponding column the number is represented in in Excel. So, 1 is A, 27 is AA, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at HomeAway (Bellevue, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Worst interview experience with HomeAway.

    I applied through LinkedIn in the middle of august.
    I got a call from recruiter and he set up a 45min technical interview with one of their developers. Then i was selected for further interviews in Bellevue area. They fly you to their place. I went through four rounds of similar interviews on site with various people from different teams.

    The recruiter called me in 4-5 days later to raise an offer. After all the negotiations and finding me a team to join. They somehow decided to call it off. This happened in last week of august.

    I am on H1-B and the recruiter said that they will be able to transfer the H1-B on October 1st. So I waited for a month and got back to the recruiter to start the process again.
    Now they say there are no openings. Where in I see multiple openings on their website.

    I didn't like the way they dealt with it. Raising false hopes and wrong communication is not good.

    HomeAway was offering 30 minute on campus interviews. I walked in, chatted with the interviewer for around half the time and discussed my side projects and passions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HomeAway (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I talked with them at a career fair at my school, they scheduled an on campus interview the next day. I did well so they flew me out on-site to Austin for the final round of interviews. The day before, there was a mixer so you could meet engineers and other people applying. The day of the interview was 4 technical interviews with 4 different engineers. I thought I did well on the interview, but unfortunately did not end up with an offer. It is a really cool company though.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HomeAway (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    4 interviewers * each 45min, interview starts at 9am. Each gives a little bit of behavior questions as well as a technical question(maybe I am not good enough for them to give me two).

    Interview Questions

    • String compression and decompression.
      "aaabbb222" to "a3b323" (compress), then decompress back to original string.
      The trick would be when a character has more than 10 digits, better format your output compressed string in order to easily decompress it.   Answer Question
