    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hotwire in March 2016.

    Interview

    They has 2 round of interviews, one with recruiter and one with director but then there was no communication for weeks. I get that they are looking for best match for the role but they should have minimum professional courtesy to inform the candidate that are moving with other candidates.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hotwire.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was very positive and quick. I was in consist contact with the recruiter and they were able to answer all my questions. I was interviewed by two Senior Managers, Senior Analyst and a Senior Manager for AP. Most of the questions were straight forward and were your basic interview questions. Everyone was really welcoming and friendly, which made the experience a lot of fun and not as stressful.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Hotwire (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through internal job board for a position on the other side of the country. Received email from HR recruiter looking to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager.

    Two days later, the hiring manager called from Miami and we had a really good conversation (I thought). Apparently, there was a level of experience they did not think I had. I wish I had been given more of a chance because I understood the position and thought I could've been a valuable asset.

    Seems like a super cool company and the focus is definitely on inventory and revenue.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hotwire.

    Interview

    initial communication began with a standard HR telephone interview. I then had a phone interview with the hiring manager and was told I would hear in a couple of weeks whether I would be brought out to headquarters for a face to face interview. I was called a couple of days later and arrangements were made to fly me out. I was e-mailed flight and hotel information along with the interview schedule for the day. No other support of guidance was provided I needed to figure everything out as far as getting to hotel and office the next day. The interview was a series of interviews with different people including a phone interview with their outsourced call center vendor. It was a total of five people I met with, there were no bathroom breaks or such given in between any of the different people. They gave the impression I was taking up too much of their time. I left to catch public transport, at my expense, back to the airport and got a voice mail the next day that I had been turned down.

    Interview Questions

    • The most challenging question or one that sticks out the most was when asked "when have you had to say no to a higher up person" they were looking for multiple specific examples of such with names   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hotwire (San Francisco, CA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was very efficient and pleasant. I was initially contacted by a recruiter and the process was followed by a phone screen with the manager and then a in-person interview in San Francisco. The interview went well and it most of it felt like a two-sided conversation more so than a strict interview. I've been wanting to work for Hotwire for a long time so I was very excited for a chance to interview. The recruiting team seems to be very efficient and any changes or questions are addressed fast. This was one of the best interviewing experiences I've had.
