    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.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    HP Managers are no longer trained on how to interview, so you can get a mixed bag. Generally they do behavioral interviews and ask for examples. Many managers have their staff interview you as well (your potential co-workers) They usually have no training in interviewing at all. They are looking to see if you'll fit in with their team.

    Interview Questions
    • I was once asked "if you were a tree, what kind would you be?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Unless you are upper management or sales, HP is not likely to negotiate. HP has been known to withdraw offers if a candidate asked for a salary outside the range the manager had in mind. I managed at HP, and we were allowed to offer up to 80% of the midpoint of the salary range.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Got my first contact through some alumni and had very good conversations to learn about the company. Recruiters are very open and genuinely interested. Received invitation to interview shortly after. Interviews are very comprehensive. The second round was at the company site. There was a reception the night before where many employees volunteer to be there to help talk to candidates. They were very friendly and helpful in answering questions about the company. Interviews day was well organized with not only interviews but also presentations, tours and lunch with more employees. It felt not only the company was assessing the candidates but they also provided plenty of opportunities for candidates to get to know the company.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    I went through on-campus recruiting. The first round interview was incredibly generic and almost entirely behavioral. There were a handful of simple accounting questions but no in-depth requests or difficult logic problems to solve. The second round interview occurs on site. Each candidate sits at a designated table. You are interviewed by 3 different managers individually. They rotate and move to your table (like speed dating). 95% behavioral. A handful of simple accounting questions.
