    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    Applied for the job after finding the opening on the internet for entry to expert level JAVA developers. Scheduled for a phone interview with the recruiter. I was excited about the position since it I thought it would be great to work for a big company like HP. But once I started talking to the recruiter, the excitement faded away instantly. They are looking for developers on a VERY TIGHT BUDGET. JAVA EXPERTS get paid UPTO 70K. huh... When I started as an entry level, I was offered 65k. But HP needs my expertise for 70k. Big names doesn't mean big pay. I work for a very small company now but way better than HP's offer. Never applying at this location again.
