Services Information Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in June 2010.
Interview Details – The interview process is simple, you have a questionnaire and you ask questions to candidates, generally interviews are conducted by phone and process is not longer than one hour. Interview is focused to questions to general aspects like ANSI SQL syntax, object oriented terms like inheritance, polymorphism, access modifiers. Some interviews are focused to C questions and basic algorithms. I do not see a high level of complexity for interviews.
Interview Question – SQL, OOP, and general programming. I would not say that there are difficult or unexpected questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – It is not possible negotiate with HP. They give you an offer, usually offer is below market price, and if you are in a region where there are few opportunities, then they win.
Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and 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 Question – What is 'efficient frontier' in supply chain? Answer Question

Systems/Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in May 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online for the position as an intern about a month before I graduated. I got a phone call a few weeks after saying they were really interested in me. Unfortunately once I said I was about to graduate, the guy said I no longer could take an internship position with them because I qualified as a new hire. So if you're still taking classes and have 1-2 years before graduating I suggest you apply to the internship positions with them.
Interview Question – Did not get to the questions due to not qualifying for the internship, but he did ask about my technical background and previous work I had done. Answer Question
