Priceline.com – Why Work With Us?


Startup spirit with grown-up stability.

Priceliners have a unique opportunity to work on cutting-edge tools and technologies 
while enjoying the security and stability of a more established company. It’s the freedom 
to experiment by doing—and the opportunity to learn from the best in the business.

Explore our career tracks.

We believe experimentation leads to innovation.

We host hackathon competitions to jumpstart innovation, inspire fresh ideas, and recalibrate our thinking in a way that meaningfully impacts our business.  In fact, Hackathon inspired the Road Trip Deals feature on our mobile app, which allows customers to enter their road trip destination in the app and find last minute hotel deals along the way.

Twenty years down and we’re just getting started.

2018 marked our Tweniversary—celebrating more than 20 years of helping people experience life’s special moments. We were joined by our original spokesperson, William Shatner, who reminded us that while the future holds endless possibilities for our business there’s one  constant that will never change. The power of Priceline will always be fueled by the commitment, passion, and creativity of our people.

 

The best relationships are based on give-and-take.

As a Priceliner, we’ll ask you to bring the best of yourself to work every day, to be generous with your time and ideas, and to take pride in making customers (and co-workers) smile. In return, we promise a chance to learn from the experts and grow through experience in a welcoming environment full of unique, talented individuals.  

Volunteerism is a big part of our culture.

We’re committed to not only helping our customers lift off, but to lifting our communities as well. Our volunteerism and charitable giving program, PricelineLIFT, includes three paid days off each year for employees to donate their time individually and as a team. Some of our favorite helping hand moments include:

  • Priceline LIFTOFF: In April 2019, 363 employees in Norwalk, New York City, Winnipeg, and Mumbai participated in an inaugural FULL week of giving, lending a hand to one of our 22 partner charities.
  • 2019 Summer Party: Priceliners who wanted to take a shot at dunking one of their leaders had to purchase a ticket to participate. All of the donations were collected and sent to The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. Together, they raised $1,240—and soaked more than a few department heads! 
  • Feeding local families: In 2018 we were honored to accept the Gene Wilder Kindness Award at The Food Bank’s 13th Annual Chefs’ Dinner. A month later, Priceliners donated 19,300 pounds of food—helping 5,000 families in the area put food on their tables during the Thanksgiving holiday.

We make big deal moments for our people, too.

Our benefits are designed to help you grow in your role, accomplish your career goals, and still be there for the moments that matter outside the office. That means offering practical things like high-quality, affordable health insurance and retirement plans. And it also means promoting work-life balance. We offer all the travel discounts you could possibly need—plus plenty of time away to use them.

Explore our fantastic benefits.

 

Our Priceliners come from all walks of life.

And so do our customers. We know that the best way to meet their diverse needs is to have a diverse range of employees whose unique perspectives, life experiences, and world views help shape our products and services. We truly believe our rich mix is what creates such a great experience for both our customers and our employees. 

Actions speak louder than words.

We’re always looking for new opportunities to celebrate diversity, foster inclusion, and empower our people. Here are just a few of the ways we create a welcoming environment:

  • Social events for holidays such as Diwali, Lunar New Year, and Cinco de Mayo, and as part of nationally recognized months of celebration, like Women’s History, Black History, Hispanic Heritage and Pride Month.
  • A full-day diversity and inclusion training program for our people leaders, focused on demonstrating an inclusive mindset while leading others
  • A Women in Leadership development program designed for rising women within the company
  • Participation in events supporting women in tech, including the Lesbians Who Tech + Allies Summit and the world-wide Grace Hopper Conference.
  • In-office meetups featuring inspirational speakers, panel discussions, and conversation around emerging technology

Explore opportunities at Priceline. 

At Priceline you’ll always find a friendly face

When you apply for a position at Priceline, you’re never just a number to us—we want
you to feel supported by a team that genuinely cares. That’s why we give each and every applicant the white-glove treatment they deserve, to ensure they have a quality candidate experience from start to finish.  

What you can expect when you interview

We use behavioral-based interview questions to help us get to know potential Priceliners. These types of questions help us get a better understanding of your actions, your decision making, and the impact you have had in previous roles.  And they also help us ensure that you embody our company values: customer, trust, team, accountability and innovation.

    Legal Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Priceline.com (Norwalk, CT) in January 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was seamless. The recruiting and HR teams thought of everything to make my experience an enjoyable one--from travel to accommodations to meeting a diverse group of company stakeholders, which allowed me to really get a sense of the company and culture. At every stage of the interview process and irrespective of the level of the interviewer, everyone was kind and approachable and made me feel like I would be an asset to the company (even the CEO), even though I was only in the interview stage. Liz Dente and Stephan Cantave managed this recruiting process with a level of professionalism, efficiency, transparency, and kindness that I have never experienced in an interview process. To be honest, it was their handling of the recruiting process that tipped the scales for me in making my decision to accept an offer at Priceline.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about how I would manage real-world scenarios and also requested that I provide a writing sample, which, to be honest, I appreciated because it gave me insight into the company business and legal issues and let me know that they take recruiting and hiring seriously.   Answer Question
