    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Conway, AR).

    Interview

    Brought before a panel of interviewers of various roles (one in HR, one VP, one in the software development department) and asked the usual questions. They were very transparent and left plenty of time for me to ask questions to see if I would be a good fit.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email setting up a phone interview within 2 weeks. I interviewed with the manager of the department (Software Firmware) asking mostly behavioral questions and getting to know me personally as well as getting to know the things that I know and don't know. Interviewer was very positive, and gave me pointers and things to look into for the following interview. A week and a half later I got a call from who I assumed to be a supervisor in the department setting up a 2nd phone interview, where I was asked a few technical questions, some rather interesting questions as well as more resume/behavioral questions. The interview was very informative and the interviewer was very knowledgeable about the position and the company.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. It began with a brief phone screening and then a face-to-face interview. My face-to-face interview was a panel interview that consisted of the person who would have been my supervisor along with one of the existing interns. The panel was very friendly and made it feel like they genuinely wanted to get to know me. Most of the interview questions were behavioral.
