    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alpharetta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Managers came to my school and did open interviews. I signed up for a time slot and it started there. This initial interview was more about getting to know about the type of person I am at the surface level. Then they invited me to a second interview at the site. This interview process was in 3 phases.
    1) i was greeted by management and they went over my resume and asked more basic work approach and social questions.

    2) Sent to another person and it was more about the technical experience i have within the realms of my college experience. Asked about how i worked in group projects.

    3) Sent to my final person who was a senior level within the specific product (SQL) I applied for. This was the technical portion of the interview. Talked programmer languages and how much i knew about each.

    NOTE: The people were friendly and made me feel comfortable. It helped because i was very nervous.

    Technical Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    Standard process though management appeared to lean of inexperienced personnel to do the initial; screening. My department is more interested in customer service skills rather than technical knowledge. You have to have a good balance I agree but so many people are being hired without any technical knowledge that serving the customers expeditiously is a major fail.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    None. Take it leave it attitude. I was told verbatim. "Sorry, since you are new the field, this is what we can offer." Their loss, I have already exceeded my peers in competence, know how, professionalism, and more. I am looking for a new job now. They simply do NOT know what they have nor do they know how to foster and develop employees.

    Most Hiring Managers at HP are very busy if you can identify the hiring manger and email him/her directly you are almost garunteed an interview. Because the process for approval for a position takes so long to even post most managers move quickly once the interview phase has begun. There is usally a phoe screening with HR. An initial Phone conversation with the Hiring manager and then a 1:1 with the hiring manager. For outside candidates there is a 3 day rule to follow up.
