I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview Details – Position was an internship with software engineering. Started with online application and phone screen. Several part interview, asked technical questions about computer architecture, object oriented programming and software design principles, data structures, and math. Behavioral part involved describing how problems with co-workers in school/work were handled. I was expecting most of these things, it was pretty similar to interviews I've had at other large tech companies.

Interview Question – Writing code on a white board in front of the software team, while they ask questions. They were friendly, but it was an uncomfortable part of the interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, they had set pay rates depending on your years of progress towards degree.

Negotiation Details – Very simple for interns, 30 USD / Hr for no experience fellows like me and around 31/32 to people with experience.

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview Details – I applied for an internship and about 2-3 weeks later they contacted me telling me I had an interview. The interview was very smooth and casual, but yet still professional. They were very interested in knowing who I was and my past experiences. About a week or so later, I was extended an offer.
