  • Last Updated : 21 Dec, 2020

Expedia visited our college to hire students for FTE(2020 passed outs) and internship(2021 passed outs) in September 2019. I am a 2021 pass out.

Round 1(MCQs and coding):

  1. No. of MCQs: Around 15.
  2. No. of coding questions: 3
  3. Duration: 90 mins.

I solved 1 and a half questions and got shortlisted for the interviews. All the interviews are elimination rounds.

I answered the questions with different approaches, reducing time complexities. The interviewer asked to write the code for the optimized approach. 

Round 3(HR): The time duration was 30 to 40 min.

Questions:

  1. Which programming language are you comfortable in and why?
  2. Long discussion on various events I participated in(mentioned them in my resume).
  3. Deep discussion on my hobbies.
  4. Questions on how well I can do teamwork and lead a team.
  5. What is the most recent situation when you have done work independently?
  6. Why do you want to join Expedia?
  7. What are your meanings of MNC and hard work? (Based on the previous discussions we had).

The interviewer sees if you are honest with him and how different you are from the others.

Verdict: Selected.
