Firmware Engineer Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in June 2015.
It was very routine and easy, the interviewer were so nice and professional. The job was firmware debugger in Vancouver, WA. It was a one year contract position. I didn't like the position because it has nothing to do with development and design. They said we are not hiring as permanent job at this moment and you need to start as a contractor first.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Vancouver, WA) in February 2015.
First you will have a phone screening with the hiring manager and the technical leads, then you will visit the site for a day and meet with several members of the team you could end up working with. Not highly technical questions, no programming questions. Most questions were around leadership roles. The interviews were very relaxing all the engineers and managers were very respectful and friendly.
- Tell me about a project you are most proud off? Tell me about a failed project you have work on? why did it fail?

The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Houston, TX) in November 2010.
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.
- Given a selection of assembly language code, describe the function you're seeing's purpose. Answer Question
- 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? 3 Answers
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.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Boise, ID) in January 2010.
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

Firmware Engineer InterviewNo Offer
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.
