    Non-engineering Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kayak.com (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    The interview process was way faster than I expected, but in a great way. From application to offer, the total time took just under 2 weeks. Three total interviews - phone and 2 in person. Great people over at KAYAK.
