I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in January 2014.
Interview Details – First of all, had a telephonic call. They actually screwed a bit to test whether I am fit to have a face to face round or not. The very same day HR called me in the evening and invited for face to face on a comfortable time on weekday. Went through two more technical rounds and one managerial round and a HR round. All these happened on a same day. HR informed that they will let me know in a few days. On the third day after the interview the manager itself called for one more round, and that was also a managerial round, who was the manager of that manager. So totally had 3 technical, 2 managerial and 1 HR round.
1st technical over phone:
Asked me about how what and basic background of my current task. How well i have understood my current project, what achievement and other stuff. Technically, he gave some scenarios and asked me how to you handle being a test engineer. Asked about computer fundamentals, as the project they were hiring for needed that. And finally cleared this.
2nd technical f2f:
Asked in depth of my current project. Technical stuffs like linux commands, java, and some other basic technical things which they need me to work with. He also asked me what all we had in our engineering academics to analyse whether i can pick up things. Cleared this round and waited for one more technical.
3rd technical f2f:
Asked me write some programs in the lang i like. He told me about a scenario they come across in their project and asked me how would i resolve and handle it technically. Asked in depth of java concepts as they use selenium tool. Cleared this too and waited for managerial round.
1st managerial f2f:
He was actually more technically sound and asked me basic to basic fundamentals of CS about what is swap space, where do we come across it, why need it, whats the use and other technical stuffs. As i was from CS i was able to handle his questions and also he helped me in getting the answer a bit, as i had not worked on it before. He was satisfied with my answer as he told me that, "good that you are able to remember your academics". He asked me how much is your current CTC and expected and notice period. He was bit of a funny guy. I loved that. He told to wait for HR round. So thought cleared this as well.
She asked me same like how much is your current CTC and expected and notice period. Whats my weakness and strength. A bit of my family background and others. She told me that everything seems to me positive, hope for the best. And she also told that she will let me know.
After 2days i got call from manager to come over again f2f for a discussion. Later manager to that manager interviewed me.
2nd Managerial f2f (different day):
He told me my responsibility, asked me why testing, why not development and other things. He just judged something out of me and at last he told "Hope we work together", which made a great smile on my face. And he told "wait till evening for the result, as we have shortlisted some more candidates".
Waited till evening. No call. Called that HR. She told that she will let the manager know and he will get back. Waited half an hour or more. Thought negative :( . But got a call from the manager who interviewed me first time.
He said " Am I speaking to _________ . I am glad to tell you that you have been selected amongst the other candidates and you have cleared your all rounds successfully. Congratulations! ..." I was on cloud9.
Interview Question – They asked to rate myself in Java, in 2nd technical round. I said core java 7/10. What is the other 3/10 you feel that you don't know. I said threads, file i/o which i have not worked with. This actually became difficult for me to answer as this was so unexpected.
Scenarios they ask will be bit tricky to answer as they expect the optimised answer for the same. Answer Question
