    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 months - interviewed 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.

    Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II Interview

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

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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.

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Expedia in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial Skype interview of about half an hour with the team leader from the US team. It was simple, usual questions such as why I want to leave my job, why Expedia, etc. Plus two maths questions.
    I was then told I had passed this first interview and the next step was 7 interviews with different people in the company. I could do them over one or two days. I obviously chose one as I had to take time off work. The day was quite long, I spoke to people who had nothing to do with the actual job I had applied to, and half of them were really surprised and did not know what to ask me as I had such little work experience on my CV (I graduated about a year ago).
    In the end they did not offer me the position as they were looking for someone more qualified. It was extremely annoying to waste the whole day and go through all of this when my work experience was written black on white on my CV and they could have told me before that they wanted someone with more work experience!!
