Last week priceline held is annual food drive benefiting The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. Contributions from employees to the Food Bank were matched by the company to deliver 375 turkeys and two moving trucks full of food. Donations were also made by employees from The Priceline Group along with our sister brand, Kayak.
Priceline's People and Culture team spent the morning at Person-to-Person in Darien, Connecticut to help setup their holiday toy drive. Over 2,100 children will receive toys this holiday season and it was a great team building event.
Priceline's success as one of the biggest players in online travel is all thanks to our incredible global team of over 16,000 people. We’re a diverse group of creative, self-motivated individuals with a passion for making travel easier, more affordable and more rewarding for our customers.
Our culture feeds on collaboration. Individuals work in small, multi-disciplinary teams where we encourage experimentation, communication and teamwork. Every employee must be strong in his or her area of expertise, but willing to learn new skills and manage multiple projects simultaneously.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with the following organizations and events:
I have been working at Priceline.com full-time (Less than a year)
First, the people! Supportive and engaging team culture - a true delight to come to work every day and collaborate across teams. I have never worked with such a diverse group of bright, funny people before.
Second, the business culture! Decision-making includes a blend of creativity and strategic business frameworks that never make me feel like we're pursuing one to the detriment of the other. Work - life balance has never been an issue. Individuals take ownership for their projects and are motivated to drive results, so there is a positive pressure to be innovative but to deliver in a timely fashion so that everyone is able to cross the line on time.
Third, the benefits! Great time off and health plan.
The location is far away from downtown NYC, which limits the pool of highly technical applicants a bit.
Advice to Management
Continue to focus on people, culture and customers!
I applied online. I interviewed at Priceline.com in December 2016.
A phone call was setup by recruiter with the technical guys. It was an intense interview . They grilled me on basic concepts of core java.It surely is not a typical phone interview. Only a guy who has some real programming experience could answer those questions.
I was called for onsite interview. Flight and hotel expenses has been taken care off. I was flown in the day before the interview. The interview was for about 4 hour 45 minutes.
The first 15 minutes is HR asking my background. All the rounds from here on has two interviewers.
First Round: It was for about 90 minutes. Web services, Spring, Core java, White board coding. Average difficulty. I managed well except for a couple of questions. I did well.
Second Round: It was for about one hour. Informal interview. Took out for lunch. No technical questions.
Third Round: It was for about one hour. Two interviewers. I think they are hiring managers and are the same people who took my phone interview. The interviewers were extremely knowledgeable. This round is not about specifically any thing but my overall application development knowledge was thoroughly tested. I did poorly in this round and my knowledge was clearly exposed. I felt that there is no way you could prepare for this specific kind of interview Only the knowledge one has built on really working on application development over a period of time helps. Every question requires coding on whiteboard.
Fourth Round: It was for about one hour. How do you perform validations? How do you trace a bug in production environment?etc. and few other questions that do not have any specific answer. I did OK in this interview. I was already down because of the previous round.
The very next day I got the standard reply that I was not selected. But I am happy with the interview process. I was given a fair chance to show my skills and I did not meet their expectations.
