    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    A bunch of hiring managers stopped by to talk with me, we had lunch together, and at the end of the day a few of the managers had offers. It feels like it's been a while since HP has hired people on, but this new way of doing things was pretty painless.

    • If you have two devices that can interrupt your program and you want to give priority and atomicity to one of the processes over the other, but you cannot use a semaphore or mutex, how would you do it?   View Answers (3)
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate, due to the crummy market at the time (2010). I lowballed my asking price too, but they greatly exceeded it, so I'm happy.

    Interview Details

    One day, 7 interviews. Very busy day and tough to stay focused for so long. The atmosphere itself is tense with little humor. Lunch with a manager and extensive technical interviews as well as a behavior and management interview

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview, then scheduled an on-campus interview at the end. The day consisted of 3 interviews and a lunch. First interview was with two senior engineers, then two other members of the team, and finally the product engineer. The lunch was with the manager and two recently hired members. They were all friendly, and the work environment seemed relaxed.
