Software Testing Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in June 2014.
Interview Details – Got my interview via a recruiting agency. Process was fast for the scheduling. Very casual. Just background experience related questions. Supposed to have a technical assignment after the interview but ended up not getting one.
Interview Question – nothing unexpected. Answer Question
IT Developer/Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in October 2013.
Interview Details – Great Company! But the interview process was a little weird. Hewlett-Packard came to my college campus for interviews and recruiting where I interviewed for the first time for a Supply Chain position at the Houston Campus. It was a really good interview, I felt confident and the interviewer was very kind. I did not receive a call back after a week or two so I decided to email my interviewer letting him know how much I enjoyed talking with him about HP and how excited I was at the prospect of being considered. He emailed me back saying he would pass around my resume to other managers in hopes that they would need someone like me. That was a little discouraging since I suppose he had decided he didn't want to hire me, but a few days later I received a random call from another Manager at HP who was hiring IT Developer's at the Houston campus. I was in IT hardware support at the time so I was really excited about talking with him. He told me he was looking to hire individuals who might be capable, and that maybe we could meet up at the campus in Houston when I was coming into town for another interview that weekend. I thought that was fantastic! I was really pumped and excited about it when I received another random phone call from the same manager the morning of my drive to Houston for another interview with an offer for the job in Houston. I was so excited I accepted and cancelled my interview in Houston that morning.
So that's the story of how the interview process went for me, the second interview required no in depth questioning, not very many technical questions, I suppose they just kind of took me at my word which I thought was great. I was so used to super crazy in-depth interviewing from so many companies it was refreshing to be so easily brought in to work by such a great company. So I've been here since January 2014 and I've really enjoyed it. At first I was skeptical since the hiring process was so easy but I've learned so so much. And I feel confident in my IT and programming skills (which I had very little of when I started at this position). It's a great company to work for, especially out of college. They pay well too which is great! I'm a happy camper here so if you get an offer, I suggest you take it and run.
Good luck in the job search! You'll find one. Just be patient and fierce.
