    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    Simple phone screen by programme manager. Then on-site interview with six people in 45 min time-blocks. Most of them seemed very serious about their work. There was one person in particular who had bought a bit of relief from the static atmosphere of the place. Interview got easier as time passed.

    Applied through university career fair, and got the on-campus interview on the next day. I was waited for 35 mins after the original schedule time, then an Indian guy asked me about the basic knowledge of Java. After that, he asked me several brain teaser questions. The whole interview was no coding at all!!! Such a surprise.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    Easy, friendly. They put me completely at ease which enabled me to think clearly, and answer accurately. This is one of the biggest flaws at most interviews, where the process becomes an inquisition. Not so here. It was more a conversational style.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was very friendly and made you feel comfortable. They also explained the job functions very well and what the company is all about.
    The only thing that I did not like is that they don't give you a clear indication of what is to happen after the interview: ie. will they notify you if you do/don't get the job or should you follow up?

    Interview Details

    My friend who already accepted an offer to work as an inside sales rep, referred my name to a recruiter. I was contacted promptly via email a few days after this. A phone interview was setup with the recruiter. The interview lasted approximately 40 minutes. The main objective was to explain what was expected for inside sales reps.
    After this interview the recruiter arranged a panel interview with 2 mangers. During this interview they asked a few questions to test my knowledge of the field I was pursuing.
    I was asked to preform a mock sales scenario. They asked me questions about my resume and why I have interest in HP.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    I was hired over 26+ years ago, right out of college so I don't recall everything.
    I was interviewed by 5 different managers at 5 different office locations.
    It took well over a month of interviews for them to finally offer me a position.
    As I recall, each interview was a calm, positive experience, not stressful
