Interview Details – I can't advise too much in this regard in that I worked under the umbrella of HP as a contractor for over a year before they reached out to me and asked if I would be willing to transition to a FTE position. All I can offer for those of you who find yourself in this position is to work your butt off and have a true commitment to delivering a quality product.
Interview Question – I don't feel that I was asked any difficult questions. They simply asked about my experience and my personal goals. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I calculated what I was making as a contractor, added in estimated "markups" for the various layers in my contract that was made up of other subcontractors, and then marked it down slightly to represent my requested salary. It was a whole lot more than I would have expected that I could ask for, but I did and they didn't blink an eye.

Interview Details –
Applied Online through HP Website, received a phone call from the IT manager a week or two later asking me to come for an interview, after the interview got an offer the same day.
Interviewer was very friendly and we spent more time getting to know each other than over my resume. I showed knowledge in recent events in regards to HP and that added value to the interview in my opinion.

Interview Details –
I initially applied for a series of positions at HP after attending an on-campus career fair in September 2012. Over the course of the 2-3 months I received rejection letters stating positions I had applied for had been filled. Until January 2013 when I received a phone call from a recruiter stating that they feel like i would be a good fit for the position.
I had a very brief phone interview with the recruiter the next day... asking general questions pertaining to my strengths and salary preference. I was later recontacted for another interview with one of the Analytics team members.
The phone interview with the Analytics member lasted almost an hour, and went very well... She stressed that she truly enjoyed the interview and that my recruiter would be in touch
*Note: My recruiter stayed in contact throughout the whole interview process, assisting me with any questions I had, and also telling me how well the interviewer rated me.
My last interview was with the hiring manager, this was a fairly simple phone interview. It was alot of restating answers to previous questions asked throughout the interview process. I also had the privilege to ask questions about the position. This is where I made a difference, I made sure I had several questions prepared for the hiring manager that displayed my enthusiasm in the position.
Interview Question – I was asked a series of questions pertaining to team cohesion and how to handle disputes and issues dealing with team members. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There really wasn't a negotiation phase, I had an idea of a good salary coming straight out of undergrad, and HP's offer was well above the average starting salary for newly graduated hires.

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.
