    Or at least the window seat of their choice... Over the last few years, there has been a shift in the mentality of many corporate travel programs.

    Software Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Egencia (Bellevue, WA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was lengthy and disorganized, though there were several items that were done well. Most of the interviewers seemed uninterested and there were occasional difficulties in terms of understanding or clarifying certain concepts - a confusing 15 minute discussion on ways to optimize tables was had that was sincerely the worst engineering conversation of my career. I was really surprised - this was the worst interview I've ever been through - the questions were relatively easy. Format, comprehension, etc. challenging. Be prepared for that up front - I could still see how this would be a good fit for everyone else.
