I have been working at Expedia full-time (Less than a year)
Expedia is the best place to work. I have been here for 11 months and enjoying every single day. The culture is upbeat, leadership is transparent , clear on direction, very well organized process oriented company. Awesome work life balance. The technology stack is cutting edge, if you love working on AWS then this is the place to be. Great learning opportunity, great location in downtown Chicago, amazing office space.
None that I can think of.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Expedia (Bellevue, WA) in September 2010.
I was reached by a former colleague about an open position at Expedia. Applied online and got contacted after a week or so. Had one phone screening interview with the HR recruiter and one phone interview with the hiring manager in the first week.
A week after that, got contacted by the recruiter to arrange the remaining interviews. Since I was based abroad at the time, all were phone interviews. 4 phone interviews of about 45 minutes were scheduled. One with an engineering director, another one with the hiring manager and two with technical peers.
The meetings with the director and hiring manager were very relaxed and just went through a few problems they were having and how I could help with that.
The first technical interview was relatively easy and focused on main performance engineering standards and processes with a couple technical questions about Java. The second technical interview was focused on functional testing, which is not the position I applied for and have little knowledge about. Asked a few questions about test cases for a theoretical application and with the little knowledge I have on that area I managed to list a few positive, negative and non-functional test cases, but explained that this was not my area of expertise.
2 to 3 weeks after the interviews, the recruiter contacted me with the offer.
Not much negotiation.
