Interview Details –
Here’s the interview schedule I had :
1:00-2:15 First Interview with person A only
2:15-3:00 Second Interview with person B only
3:00-3:45 Third Interview with person C only
3:45-4:30 Fourth Interview with person D only

You are pretty much have to repeat about yourself with every single person every hour. Interview was very frustrating that you have tell every body same thing. They asked question which is very irrelevant to the position. I feel that I have wasted my five hours with them. They really need to interview all together in round table instead of one after another person so you don't have to repeat your answer to this question to every different person "so tell me about yourself". In my 7 years career as Software Engineer, I have never seen such a disgusting interview planning. People/developer who interview you will be 3-4 java developers. They are very proud of them self and they think their company as "Google"
At the end, they called me that they can offer me "Low salary" I declined and rejected.
If you really want HP to interview, you have approach them on Job fair, they don't see applicant online on careers at hp site. I have filled online application and they never called. yet they have lots of java developer position open in their website.
Interview Question – Explain Binary tree. View Answer
Reason for Declining – They were offering me low salary because they think they can easily find lots of H1B person from other country.

Interview Details – I came in as a contract to hire contingent worker. My first interview was with the NOC manager who asked a series of questions guaging my approxiate technical skill, and the typical "getting to know you" kind of questions. He explained that no matter how much he liked me, he wouldn't hire anyone his guys didn't like. The second interview was scheduled for the following day. Three of my future co-workers asked me a series of technical questions some of which had little to do with the job, but were related to overall competency. In general no real surprises.

First was 1 hr long the interviewer did most of the talking. 2nd interview was 30 min behavioral question mostly team related. 3rd was little technical. After spending nearly 3 hours on the 3 phone interview I was told they will let me know if they want me to come in for 1 on 1 interview face to face within 2 weeks. I never heard from them I emailed them after 3 weeks and they said they will let me know when the director comes. I never heard from them I emailed 2 months later to see what the hold was but I knew I wasn't going to get the job because it was 2 months later. I wish they had just let me know.

Interview Details – I received a call from a recruiter. I was willing to listen to the current business plans and accepted the next 1:1 interview with the hiring manager. That was a 30 min call. After that, I was brought onsite for 3 1:1 interviews from the team that I would be working with in Austin. After 2 days, they called back and offered me the position. We went back and forth for a week through negotiations and I accepted their final offer.
Negotiation Details – I negotiated salary, starting bonus, working offsite, and a few small perks. Overall, if they want to bring you onboard, they will do what they can to make sure you accept the position.

Interview Details – I applied throughout the HP career site. About a month later the hiring manager emailed me to setup a time for a phone interview. However I ended up having a phone interview with his lead java engineer. The phone interview was quite easy and quick. Then I was invited for an in person interview next week. This interview lasted about 3 hours. For each hour I interviewed with two different people, which makes 6 people in total. I was not given an offer but the lead engineer offered me his recommendation for other HP positions. All of the interviewers were very kind and friendly. The technical questions require some preparation if your knowledge is not fresh enough.
