Hardware Engineer I Interview

Hardware Engineer I
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in March 2011.

Interview Details – I was brought in for a two day recruitment session with about 50 other candidates from schools around the nation. They put us in a nice hotel right by the HP campus and was taken out to eat in downtown Houston at a nice restaurant where you got to meet with and talk to many of the teams that were hiring. Second day was an aggressive schedule where they took us on tours and we endured three technical interviews and was asked to give a presentation on my senior design process. The technical interviews ranged from very hard think outside the box type questions to very easy basic questions about digital circuits. The level of difficulty depended solely on the interviewer.

  • A signal was drawn on the board. Calculate the maximum gain of the signal.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They start your offer low to give some negotiating room. It is definitely worth trying to negotiate for higher salary/bonus.
