    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter. The first round consisted of basic behavioral/fit questions. The second round was a combination of behavioral and lightly technical questions. Most of my issues from the interview process stemmed from how unprofessional and inconsiderate the recruiters were. My initial interview was rescheduled last minute which I didn't mind because I understand that things happen; however, after having expressed that I had an offer deadline with another company, I never heard back from HP after my second round interview. I attempted to follow up three times over the course of two months and still heard nothing. This is very unprofessional as many candidates such as myself like to receive feedback post interviews or at the very least be notified whether or not their candidacy is still being considered for a position.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    Series of telephone interviews. Well done, could tell the hiring manager had a selection of questions he would pick from, so more standardized than most. Very interested in 'fit' as most questions revolved around why do you want this position, what are your long term goals.

I informed them that I would call them after I think about the offer and gave them reasons for my hesitation. Once I called back, they had another offer available that was only a few hundred dollars than my desired pay.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The first round was a phone interview with the manager of the department. It was very laid back and simple with easy questions. The second round was in-person with three other business analysts. They had very specific questions about my resume and I could tell that they took the time to really review my materials before meeting me (which I appreciated). The questions weren't very difficult, but it was evident that they were looking for someone who perfectly fit their company (and it was clear that I didn't). Overall, I would advise you to really study everything on your resume and find ways to relate it to the department. Got a call back a few weeks later with them announcing they picked other people for the positions.
