    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    Very minimal, very astonishing for a big company. Only phone interview. The company being big did not invest time and effort in the interview as they have a 6 month probation period and also can remove with few days if necessary. They prefer seeing person on job especially if at a client site and if client has no issues. The interview was mainly technical to match the client specifications. There was no verification of the resume other than a background check.

    Interview Questions
    • It was mostly technical and how many skills experienced in. No cognitive or team dynamics questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, take it or leave it. Since HP is big company, getting in is supposed to be the biggest perk.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a Testing Intern position and it took about 15 minutes overall. It's a phone interview: ask about the resume:basically one or two projs you have ever done/ ask some concepts in Java, it's easy. The manager said he will set up a online programming test with me but I didn't get the notification for next step.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    You will get contacted by a recruiter first. Then if you make the cut the hiring manager will want to meet with you. After at least one interview, maybe more, a decision will be made. Ask for as much $$ as you think you can get!!! If they can't pay you that, they will just offer you less. Do not sell your self short. It's very hard to get raises after you get in. So... start as high as you can.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when..... It will all be behavioral interview questions. Be prepared for that! You will be asked questions about the SDLC, your knowledge of the particular system/business you'll be working with and your ability to work as a team.   View Answer

    The interview process was very straight forward and quick. They did not delay in coming up with the offer. The HR was very clear upfront about the work.The Job description was not really what I actually encountered after I joined. It was an over inflated JD more than half of which was not true.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume at job fair. Got a call about a month later for 30 minute phone interview. The interviewer was laid-back. Not a very difficult interview at all. Received an email a couple weeks later with offer. I think they are seeking "blank-slate" sorts of people so that they can train them specifically for the tasks they are doing.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly behavioral. Not very technical. They just asked if I know TCL or Python.   View Answer
