    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide in June 2014.

    Interview

    Referals are big here. I interviewed over the phone first with someone from HR that took about 30 minutes outlining past experiences and why I want to work at Orbitz. After getting through the phone interview, I came to the Chicago office and interviewed with 4 different sales people whom are now on my team. One of the interviews was over the phone with a main executive in the Chicago office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide in November 2014.

    Interview

    Was standing in line for another company at our university career fair when a couple of Orbitz recruiters walked through the line asking for resumes. Having extra copies on hand, I gave the recruiter one (never decline opportunities when you're looking for one!). A few weeks later, I was granted an on-campus interview. On-campus interview consisted of a few behavioral questions and 3 standard technical coding questions that tested you on CS fundamentals (data structures and algorithms) and was conducted by a product manager and a software engineer. A week later, I was sent an e-mail for a coding assessment. The coding assessment tested you on CS fundamentals, but focused on graph searching. Orbitz gave 2 days on the coding assessment. About a week later, I was invited for an on-site interview. From the information I received, Orbitz pays for travel costs and hotel accommodations, but candidates are required to arrange for their own travel. However, I already had a job offer from a company I liked better and had a more competitive compensation package (based on what I know from Glassdoor's posted averages for Orbitz), so I declined the on-site interview request.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected behavioral: "If you were on Mars, what would be 3 items you would want to have and why?" (This was unexpected but fun!)

      The technical questions weren't particularly challenging; you just had to have a good handle on the fundamentals.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide in October 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to Orbitz during campus job fair, and was scheduled a campus interview two weeks later. The interview is half behavioral and half technical. The behavioral questions are very general ones like what's the most difficult time in your life and how you solve it. What if you have conflict with your team member. The technical questions are not difficult, including basic concept about binary search tree.

    Interview

    Applied through college job fair where I met with some technical person from Orbitz and he asked and inquired about my skills and projects I have done and then took my resume, After almost 3 days, I got a email asking me to schedule a interview with them and was given a range of dates to select from. The interview happened at my university's career center.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview started with a behavioral test where I was asked questions such as most difficult time of your life etc.

      Then the technical interview started where I was asked questions on Binary trees and search. Heaps. Was given a simple code to debug and a coding question to find some permutations of a given set of numbers.

      I was always asked if I knew some concept before asking questions on them and they were alright with me not knowing everything.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Orbitz Worldwide (Chicago, IL) in November 2009.

    Interview

    I got this interview from Campus Career Center. The first interview is on campus with 2 interviewer asking me about some common questions and math questions. The following week I got pass to onsite interview in Chicago. The interview consists of behavior, technical and 1:1 interview. There are 5 questions in technical test: 1, given a rand() which only generate random number from 1~5, create a random generator can generate random number from 1~7. 2. Given a cell phone panel consists of 9 buttons which there are letters on each number key as the real cell phone, create a function can translate sequence of letters to numbers. 3. Create a function to judge if a linked list is a circle or not. 4. Convert a formulate in inverse poland sequence into normal formula, ex. 523+* into 5* 2+3. I forgot the last one sorry.

    About the behavior, nothing to say, common questions. About the 1:1 interview. They asked me about Java about hashtable, how to distribute requests to different servers, garbage collection. I did not get that offer because I did so bad in the 1:1 interview. I am bad at Java.

    So pity.
