    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview took place on site at my University and was done in two parts. First, I was interviewed by an HP senior manager followed by a regional director with over 500 people working under her. The interview was fairly straightforward. They tested my knowledge on HP Enterprises services, history and asked me to relate my experience to sales situations they provided.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by an employee for an open position. The manager for that particular position called me in the following days and we had a phone interview that went over my resume followed by a role-play - the manager being the customer. This was not the most typical interview, but there have been others that witnessed the same process. Just be sure to know about the company and a vague understanding of the products you would be selling.

    Interview Details

    I didn't really get past the phone interview. It was my first interview I totally blew it! I was so upset and nervous and she couldn't even see me I was interviewed by Carey Dugan. She asked me three whole questions: what do I think are the main qualities of a sales person? Why did I attend my College? What kind of duties did I fulfill at a old job I had on my resume?

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    After a phone interview from an overseas HR agency, I had a face to face interview. They say it is 3 people, but I only had two. The questions were the types you'd expect for a sales interview regarding experience and sales track record. The interviewers were both very nice and they sold the company to me right away. I was impressed with their professionalism and the overall presentation.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    I met with the sales rep at my university career fair. I spoke with two men for 30 minutes about my field of study (marketing). I was contacted by the internal recruiter and did a phone interview that lasted about 30 minutes. Very basic interview questions, nothing too tough. I was offered a panel interview. That lasted 45 minutes with a group of 5. I was then offered another panel interview. That was about 30 minutes and with two people. I was then offered the job and accepted.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate because it wasn't needed. I was honest with them about my other offers so they were able to let me know that I was about to get offered a position; just had to complete the standard interview processes.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very thorough. Applied online, had a phone screen interview first, face to face interview with a site manager, and then a follow up phone interview with that same manager before being interviewed. Advice I would offer would be to always research the company before interviewing.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time that you failed.   View Answer
    • Sales Role Play: Give me your best sales pitch for any product & then explain why you did the things you did (during the sales pitch).   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I interviewed for an entry-level (new college graduate) position with set salary/commission and benefit options. There was not a negotiation process. But I would advise those looking for a career to look at the whole benefit package & compare to others because benefits matter!
