Intern Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in April 2013.

Interview Details

I went through three interviews; one with the to-be-boss and two with technical members of the team. The questions focused on targeting my preferences, experience, and expertise. Questions from the boss were non-technical and were mostly about my interests. Questions from the technical members of the team were technical questions about my expertise and about my relevant experience (e.g. projects I have done and what my roles were).

Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 separate phone interviews with managers (NOT HR). Combination of technical questions (e.g. What is the Pareto rule?) along with traditional behavioral questions (e.g. Describe a situation where you disagreed with someone?). After multiple interviews, they asked to sen me paperwork since I am military due to prevention of conflict of interest.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was quick and each one of the interviewers made the interview feel like a conversation more than an examination. All the three interviews were over the phone. The whole process was less than a week and the decision was conveyed without much delay. The onboarding process was exceptional.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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.
