    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at trivago in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straightforward and quick. There is no whiteboard quiz, but rather real life, domain specific tests and interviews.

    There are 4 steps:
    1. Apply - send in your resume and cover letter

    2. Case study - a task to build a project and turn in within 7 days. The project was moderately difficult and it gave an opportunity to put in all the best practices one knows of.

    3. First Skype Interview (Technical) - with 1 Lead Android Engineer, 1 Android Engineer and 1 person from HR . It was basically centered around experience with the Android platform, questions about technical decisions that were made in the case study. A couple of behavioral, soft skills questions and also some questions around software project management methodologies and ideologies. The interviewers were cheerful and made me comfortable all through the interview.

    4. Second Skype Interview (Culture fit) - with 1 Android Team Lead and 2 Product Managers. It was more of a culture fit interview with a mix of technical and behavioral questions. A couple of questions about the trivago product (app) itself. Like the last interview, they were very cheerful and helpful. It felt more like a discussion than an interview.

    I believe the last step above would have been on-site for some people, and I'm guessing they opted for Skype interview since I was far away (Lagos, Nigeria) and visa processing for an on-site interview could be hectic and time consuming.

    A few hours after the last interview, I got an offer for the job :)

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at trivago in October 2014.

    Interview

    1. Sent application in
    2. One week later was contacted to set up a Skype interview for the following week
    3. Skype interview with head of marketing dept. for my region. Basic stuff like background, trying to get a feel of my personality, making sure that I understand the job description, responsibilities. Told that I would be contacted within 2 weeks.
    4. 2 weeks elapse and a second Skype interview is scheduled for that Friday.
    5. Second skype interview starts but I was supposed to have done an excel exercise that I didn't know about. So interview is pushed back a half an hour so I can complete it. Once its done, I walk the interviewer through my thought process, and once its obvious I know whats going on the job is pretty much offered at that point.
    6. Written offer comes one week later.

    Obviously, theres a lot missing from this brief timeline- trivago is very consistent on wanting the right people not necessarily the most academically qualified. You really need to be yourself in the interview and hope that they agree on the fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at trivago in February 2014.

    Interview

    Process was chaotic and disorganized (Warning #1). They changed my interviewers on me multiple times, so I had no idea who to even contact during the entire process (Warning #2). Interviewer was thirty minutes late to the interview (Warning #3). Afterwards, the company asked me to write and submit two new, unique articles they'd use. Umm... you shouldn't ask for free content, Trivago, especially when you're not willing to pay for it (Warning #4). Still, even after the interview ordeal, I was told I'd hear back in two weeks. Two weeks go by and no answer. I inquire. Two more weeks go by (Warning #5). I inquire again after each week. Finally, after four weeks, I receive a generic emailed response.

    For a company so expansive, they were immensely disorganized and left their candidates clueless through the process.
