    Vorstellungsgespräch

    All interviews were carried out in English.

    Interview process consisted of an initial phone interview with an internal IT recruiter who asked about your experience in general, what sort of projects you work on, and why you were interested in looking for a new position. It was faily non-technical and in the standard Dutch style was very upfront and matter-of-fact. She asked about what my thoughts were on the current booking.com system (which I hadnt looked at and when I did, I was looking at the ipad version and she was talking about the desktop version, so that was awkward) But the recruiter seemed to like it enough and recommended I have a second interview.

    Second interview was another phone interview (I live on the other side of the world) with colleagues who hold the same position as the one I was applying for. I was loosely told by the recruiter that I should go through the booking.com booking process and come prepared with feedback and recommendations. I prepared my feedback and documentation. And when it came time to have my interview (the middle of the night for me) they never called. I got an email about 2 hours later stating that they had been stuck in a meeting. Not a problem. I've had this happen to me, too. We rescheduled for the following day. Second day comes and I have the interview. I basically talk for an hour giving my presentation on optimization of a sales funnel, writing personas, defining happy paths, using data to make data driven decisions on optimization. Interviewers say very little in general. My time ends, and they thank me for the talk and we hang up.

    A few days later the recruiter calls me again and asks me how it went. I say that I don't really know as I did most of the talking and they did none at all. She says okay and checks their notes. They liked what I had to say and wanted to fly me to The Netherlands for a final interview.

    We made arrangements and they were very accommodating. The entire process was very pleasant. I arrived a few days beforehand and explored the city a bit.

    I arrived early for my interview and was quickly greeted and made to feel welcome. I was told I would have two interviews and then a final discussion with the HR recruiter.

    I was put in a room and was in front of two other sets of peers talking about best practices when it comes to optimization of a sales funnel. We talk about how to get data, how to interpret data, and how to form hypotheses off data. I ask them about what they like about working here, what their day-to-day is like, and what sort of candidate is successful. They are cheery but serious in their answers.

    Second interview was with another set of peers and we talk about my past projects and how I used data to make profitable decisions for my clients. We discussed business intelligence, SEO, innovative techniques on data mining, and how it could relate to travel booking. I ask them about their work life, why they came to work for this company, what they did before they worked here, and what they disliked the most about this job. They answered in the same cheery but serious manner

    After that, the HR representative came in and told me they wanted to have another interview with either a senior member or the department head. They couldnt raise him via text, so while they went to find him, they took me on a tour of the facility. The HR representative was nice and it was a casual tour which was exactly what I expected it to be. When I returned the department head was there, and we talked. He had a number of scenarios that he wanted to go through involving how to make deductions based on real life scenarios. It was probably the most interesting interview I've ever had. I was not prepared to start practicing statistics on the spot, but I eventually got myself up to speed to successfully answer his questions. I asked him what sort of candidates were successful in this organization and what sort of people he liked to have on his team and what sort of people would wash out quickly.

    After that, I had a conversation with the HR recruiter about relocation and logistical questions surrounding moving to a new country. We parted ways and she said she would be in touch.

    A few days later we had a phone conversation and she let me know that my lack of experience in one area was why they were not offering me the position. (they were absolutely right about it, by the way) and that she wished me good luck. I would have also picked this area as my weakness based on those interviews, but don't think it would have been a problem to come up to speed on.

    Either way, great interview process. Very pleased with the company in general.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2019 bei Booking.com (Amsterdam (Niederlande)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I have applied online for position of product owner infrastructure through their website. After some days I have received email from recruiter saying that my profile has been shortlisted and they want to connect with me. I had initial discussion with HR and after a week I have asked for update upon which she said that my profile has been shortlisted. After that there was interview with 2 product owners for about 50 min. After this this round I got a call from HR saying that they want to move ahead and invite me to amsterdam for interview.

    After 2 days HR calls and says that, their higher management feels now that I don't have enough product experience(4 years in product + 2 years in development) and so they do not want to move ahead with me.

    These guys are very confused while arranging for an interview. They wasted my late night hours for 3 round of interview and until then my experience was all good. All of a sudden they feel its is less. Too much of miscommunication and lack of interest in taking candidate interviews. Also my second round was rescheduled at last moment by informing half hour ealier. They are not serious about candidates and interview and just waste time. Highly unprofessional and not recommended.

    By now if the actual recruiter reads this then she will surely understand, who has written the review.

    Applied through the website and got a revert from the hr in 2 days.
    1st screening by the technology recruiter was scheduled after 5 days, on a Tuesday.
    Got the call from hr 20 mins after the decided time. The questions were regarding the products I've handled, metrics, prioritisation, few examples where I performed ab tests and why I want to join Booking. Hr also discussed about the timelines of process, and the different rounds that'll happen.
    It was a pretty decent interview and I answered all the points well. The hr told that she'll be back latest by Friday regarding the next steps.
    I sent a mail on Friday evening about the next steps, as I wanted to utilise the weekend for the preparation for the next round. Got an auto-reply mail after an hour that they wouldn't continue with the process.
    No reasons stated for not continuing and no response provided as well.
    I'm still not sure what was the reason behind not continuing with the candidature.

    Ich habe mich persönlich beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im September 2018 bei Booking.com (Amsterdam (Niederlande)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The process has three steps:
    First is a phone call from HR to understand if there is a basic match.
    Then, an online interview with case-study I had to prepare. The final step is to be interviewed at the HQ in Amsterdam. In Amsterdam, you will see HR, and two sessions of product & Data science teams. (If the position have something with AI)
    Generally, it was very professional procedures with constantly excellent feedbacks from HR.
    The position was an "AI data owner" so I asked about AI and data science in general ( I talked about my experience, that was more than enough. they didn't ask me about statistics and stuff like that ).
    The hardest part for me was the product management side: I had to give examples about methodologies I used in the past, challenges I had and how I prioritized features. Somehow, I failed to find good examples.
    ( I put more much more effort to prepare to the DS domain that to the product. it was a terrible mastake)
    Sadly, I didn't get the job. :-(
    Anyway, Booking looks like a great company!
    Good luck to you product owner!
    Roy.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Pros:
    - Being able to scale to hundreds of cross-functional teams is truly fascinating
    - Incredibly accommodating in terms of travel to Amsterdam to attend the interview.
    - Very reasonable relocation package for families.
    - HR is very friendly and accommodating.

    Cons:
    - Huge corporation (politics > skills & character).
    - Randomly generated feedback and no further insights provided. (I had the impression they sent me feedback from another candidate and did not care to respond when I asked questions about it, my only other explanation would be that I was politically unfit but they clearly couldn't put that in the feedback so they put random stuff). I get it, I was just a number in the funnel.
    - Forget innovation, embrace optimization (especially in the interview process which clearly means it will be even more so in the day to day life)
    - Incredibly slow process.

    The interview process was streamlined, but the only thing that didn't went well was that the recruiter didn't forward te latest version of my resume to the product owners that interviewed me. It was an intense, but great conversation amongst peers though. They focus heavily on data-driven decision making.
