    Software Engineer In Test - II Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Expedia in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    01. HR informed me 2 days in advance that a series of 4 telephonic interviews are scheduled over spanning across 2 days.
    02. HRs were friendly through out the process and kept me updated.
    03. After two levels of interview, they informed that they won't be able to proceed with my candidature further.
    04. They shared the feedback of the interview on request. That was helpful.

    Interview Questions
    • Contrary to my assumptions, i found the interview pattern simple. Each interview lasted for 1 hour and it consisted 3 questions precisely.
      a. Quick Question about OOPS.
      b. Question related to functional - preparing a exhaustive test case list for a typical Web service architecture.
      c. Coding Question - A typical challenge was thrown associated with arrays, matrix and they expect to arrive with design and coding with in the stimulated time.

      Trust me, they expect the fine tuned code with in the first attempt itself. No excuses.
      Interviewers might give some focus points if they think if you are missing something or lacking - try to seek that point and explain about that area. You can't skip that point.
      Preparation around coding challenges around arrays, strings, matrix and linked lists would be helpful.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Expedia in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very long, they take a lot of time to schedule interviews. I have never given so many interviews for a single company. Interviews don't call you up at least first two times for a telephonic or skype interview. It took 3 months for them to complete the process and by that time hiring got freezed in that team and I was asked to appear for another team there again I have to give few rounds of interviews again. There hiring process left a very bad impression in my head. They were my first choice to join even after having few offers in hand and they made me finally taking a step back. I declined for the further process. They literally take weeks to schedule an interview and then weeks for the interviewer to take interview after 2nd or 3rd attempt and then again HR will take weeks to revert you back. I have never experienced such a candidate unfriendly process.
