    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hotels.com (London, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter phone interview, followed by hiring manager phone interview, then in person at their offices in London. In person interview was 5 x 30 minutes with different people from the Product and Technology teams. The interviewers were friendly and they asked reasonable questions. I didnt' feel that they were trying to catch me out. They also tried to not keep repeating the same questions through the process. Most of it was standard Product Process type questions (e.g. user stories, backlog management, prioritisation, working with the design and development teams, review of processes, stakeholder management etc).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hotels.com (Dallas, TX) in May 2008.

    Interview

    An external recruiter identified me as a candidate. Prior to speaking with people at Hotels.com, they sent me a set of questions to answer. Upon receipt/screening of the questions, I then connected with an internal recruiter and spoke with the hiring manager. After that, I spoke with another person in the company and was flown in for a series of interviews over the course of a day. It was a great company full of very smart people.

    Senior Market Research Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hotels.com.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was asked to do a digital interview. A recruiter had pre-recorded questions, there were a few minutes to think about a response and then a few minutes to respond. The length of time varied depending on the question. I was expecting typical first-round interview questions, but there were some case type questions included. Case questions including asking how you would go about testing a new ad, including method, questions, any other information given etc. I was also given a data table and asked to analyze it and determine if indicated an issue with brand health. There was an opportunity to re-record your response for each question, which was really helpful, but I am unsure if they were able to see the first attempt. In my opinion, this was a difficult interview because there was no feedback from a person - nods, body language, clarifying questions - to ensure the question was fully answered.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hotels.com (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The initial communication was good. However, beware because you will be given a case study with long division and other items which have absolutely nothing to do with SEM. I interviewed with a Director who had no SEM experience past the summer of 2013. The interview process is long

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hotels.com (Dallas, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    1 on 1 was the first 20 minutes of the interview. They are likely to ask multiple questions about difficult decision that had to be made regarding your previous employment. During the second part of the interview, the process had multiple people in the room, so it is important to address all those people. Some of the people in the room will not ask any questions, they just site there and check you body posture.
