    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Expedia in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Received a call from HR of Expedia, who has seen my profile in LinkedIn. He asked me couple of simple questions like what is Hashmap and a question about finding combination of numbers in an array that add up to a certain value. I got three rounds of telephonic interviews scheduled after a week or two. Then I was asked to fly to Expedia in Gurgaon. I had three rounds of interview. The questions are not tough, I could write code for all the questions, however, based on the feedback, the code wasn't optimized enough.

    Senior Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    I know Expedia is a great brand in US but in India I feel recruiters are making it worst. I applied through job site and got a call directly from the recruiter. It was a for Gurgaon, India location. Faced 2 telephonic technical interview. After my 2nd interview I got an email from recruiter that next will be F2F interview and he will inform me when I have to come. Then it almost like 3 weeks and I haven't received any reply from him. So I sent and email for the update. No reply again. Then finally I called him and he told me they have hired someone from local. He don't have any etiquette to at least reply on the email. Expedia is a great brand and every candidate prepare a lot for the interview. Please at least give respect for those preparation.

    Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Expedia in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a very bad experience with Expedia. I submitted my resume through a friend who got hired in expedia..Got a call from them...first telephonic interview went well...i messed up my second round..so was said 'No'..ok accepted till now...

    But then again HR calls up after 15 days for other rounds of interviews...this time i had 4 back to back telephonic interviews in a week (each about 45-60 min)...out of these 4, 2 were taken by product manger in Seattle on skype.. I was in NCR region...after these 4 rounds I was called for F2F...

    F2F was really bad/horrible/awful experience..
    I had initial one round of technical interview by 2 team members which went WELL and then they send in the Director to interview me.

    After series of technical interviews for about 3 weeks I thought this will be kind of the relaxed round..I didnt expect director to grill me technically after 7 rounds already done.
    To my utter dismay this turned out to be other technical round.

    My mind was fully exhausted by now, I didnt even feel like answering ..it was like how much are you going to evaluate me..after series of about 7 int, u still are grilling me...Director even went to records and said that your skill are still not that sharp..

    In my mind I thought what were you evaluating me for till these rounds that now you are now realising my skills are not that sharp..

    Anyways i will still like to mention all those repetitive ques i was asked over the several int -
    .net, sql, coded ui tool related -
    1) What are interfaces?
    2) What is operator overloading, method overloading
    3) Abstract classes, virtual classes, difference b/w them
    4) ques related to .net libraries like how will will you open a file (System.IO namespace and all)
    5) Exception Handling
    6) Wcf servies/proxy concepts
    7) Codedui tool concepts - object repository, recognizing an object
    8) string reversal program
    9) Simple insert/select/join queries

    Interviews that I had with prod managers were process related mainly or were analytical
    1) what is agile, scrum concepts
    2) how will you test a travel website ..what all scenarios

    Director went to ask me ques that were too complex for me - Singleton classes, finding a card from deck of cards

    This is all I can remember from series of interviews that happened.

    Interview Details

    Got an email from HR, and the process (until the final round of interviews) took about 3 weeks. First interview is a screening call from HR, followed by a skype call by a manager, then a face to face interview with the hiring manager. Only during the last interview I was informed about requirements of the position that were not listed on the job description posted on Expedia Jobs website

    Market Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Expedia.

    Interview Details

    I went through three interviews. First a screen phone call, had about three questions about revenue management like revpar. Second was a Skype interview with the regional director, pretty standard questions. Third interview was in person at their office. The interview was an hour and was only role play involving sales type questions. I was able to answer most of the questions asked but some where hard to answer solely because I've never been in a market associate position. I didn't like how the interview was only role play for an hour, it doesn't give an accurate picture of the position or my skills.

    From start to finish the interview process took over a month.

    Associate Market Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Expedia in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    This have been one of the longest processes I have ever experienced applying for a job. I had HR recruiter leave me an message advising me that he wanted to speak with me regarding an Market Associate position, I promptly called him back and followed up with an email but did not get a response until two weeks later. After speaking with HR and going over my qualifications I was advised that I was over qualified for that position and that he thought I would be a better fit for the Associate Market Manager position, I was advised me that someone would give me a call to set up the next faze. After, another week I finally received the email with the time and date for the next interview. The tech portion consists of Revpar questions, math questions etc. I spoke with Bonnie and she was very nice, and although she was giving me role play questions, they weren't hard and I could tell Bonnie was a true professional. Two days later I received a email stating that I passed the tech interview and I will be moving to the face to face faze. After giving the recruiter my availability I was told that I would hear back from him by the end of the business day. After a week of not hearing anything I started to call and email him and in the process I had other recruiters with Expedia reach out to me. However, when I advised them that I was working with someone I was advised they could help me and someone will contact me. After three weeks I received a call that the company had restructured and he was no longer my recruiter but the person that would set this up will give me a call within the next week. I finally received a email stating that their was not have anyone available to interview me because of the holiday weekend.. Two weeks later I finally received my face to face interview and honestly it was a pleasure speaking with professionals, at the end of the interview I was advised that I would hear back within the next few days. Seven days later I received an email that I should hear back one way or the other in a week because they had not interviewed everybody because they were behind... As, of today I am still waiting for an response but I am told by the recruiter to have a little more patience. I am still being considered for the position. I have never experienced anything like this in my life.... Seems like a great company to work for but the process shows me that I have more determination that I thought....
