Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview

It was only a single 1 hour interview that took place in an adjacent room to the main lobby. This was an excellent no-BS interview that included questions of reasoning power, base applicable knowledge, and general resume questions. This interview was difficult but all of the questions seemed reasonable. I look forward to a long career at HP.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Houston, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    To be a large corporation, I found the process to be be very unorganized. I later found out that this was due to a lack of support staff. The hiring manager had to arrange most details himself. Layoff, off-shoring, and contractors had led to a severe reduction in work staff.

    Reasons for Declining

    It did not seem like a long term opportunity. HP has no long term plan to keep engineering jobs in the USA.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Vancouver, WA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by the hiring manager by phone, and then a formal phone interview was set up. The formal phone interview was technical, and it lasted about 1 hour. An on-site interview was scheduled about 1 week later.
    The on-site interview lasted about 7 hours. Questions were technical.
    I was asked if I was a US citizen, which was referred as an illegal interview question by some websites. Combining with other questions asked during the interview, I felt like there was something subtle at HP.
