    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a telephone interview only. No tough questions. It was clear that they were working on volume rather than quality. I was recruited through a 3rd party contractor so I wasn't a direct "core" employee of Hewlett Packard, which made it easy for them to accept or reject candidates. Or in my case discard them.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions presented whatsoever. After being hired during the first day of training they made it clear that the decision was based on their perception of our personality over the phone.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via telephone by the division manager for an interview. From submitting the application to getting the phone call was about 5-6 weeks. The interview was structured so that I saw two managers in the morning, had lunch with two team members, and saw two more managers in the afternoon. The interviews were all one-on-one and pretty typical.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had only saved a draft of my profile online and was contacted by someone from HP in a week. First was a phone call telling me that there was going to be a phone interview. The phone interview was very odd as the interviewer seemed to read out questions. I answered all the questions and was told that I'll be contacted but I was never contacted after that. I made the mistake of not getting the interviewer's email. The phone number was a Mexico number. The overall interview was very strange.
