    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews. They cannot conduct face to face interviews for contract employees. Both interviews were with the hiring manager who I loved working for. Very average in terms of questions asked and it was pretty informal.

    Interview Questions

    • More experience based than behavioral questions.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen with HR. It was a very simple and friendly interview, mostly about my background, trying to find out what I have done in the past so as to figure out if it matches up with the role.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    You will get contacted by a recruiter first. Then if you make the cut the hiring manager will want to meet with you. After at least one interview, maybe more, a decision will be made. Ask for as much $$ as you think you can get!!! If they can't pay you that, they will just offer you less. Do not sell your self short. It's very hard to get raises after you get in. So... start as high as you can.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when..... It will all be behavioral interview questions. Be prepared for that! You will be asked questions about the SDLC, your knowledge of the particular system/business you'll be working with and your ability to work as a team.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Houston, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    My friend who worked at HP referred me to the job. I emailed my resume and got a call that same day to schedule a phone interview (I was in another state) for the following week. The phone interview was almost an hour long and was with two different people at once. About a week later, I received a call that HP wanted to fly me into their location for a second interview. The next week, I interviewed on site with the same two people from the phone, as well as the Director. We just went over my experience a little more, and I received a tour of the site. It lasted about 1-2 hours, I can't remember. A week later, the hiring manager called and asked me to apply to the specific req# on HP's site, so I did. About 1-2 weeks later the hiring manager called me with an offer, which I accepted. Shortly after, a written offer was emailed to me where where I signed and accepted digitally. The overall process was about a month or less (side note- it was during the Christmas holidays, so things moved a little slow due to vacations, etc.).

    Interview Questions

    • Standard interview questions such as greatest strengths, weakness, challenges, past projects, why I wanted to work for HP, what was my past job experience, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked me what salary I was looking for. I answered. They offered slightly more than I asked, so I accepted.

    Interview

    The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews and even third interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Corvallis, OR) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I had one 30 minuet phone interview followed by a full day of face to face interviews with various people that i would be working with if i got the job. I had prepared answers for the "commonly asked interview questions" but very few of those were asked. It was mostly to see how i processed information, and what steps i would take to solve a problem.

    Interview Questions

    • There were a great deal of questions asked about statistics, and there seemed to be an emphasis on having familiarity using SQL. I feel that one of the most difficult parts was that by the end of the day of interviews i was just used up.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Conway, AR) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through a career fair at my university. The interview process took about 4 week for me and included 4 phone interviews and no face-to-face interviews. I never talked to the same person during this process.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were based around the technical side of business analysis, since i specialized in SAP they were mostly geared toward that as well. In the final interview all the questions were basically to see if I "fit" HP's culture.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations, the offer was fantastic.
