    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    You will interview with HR, and hiring managers. The questions are primarily behavioral based. It will start out with a phone conversation, next will be HR, and then an interview with a manager or senior consultant, and then a quick conversation with a hiring manager. The process is fairly quick, and was pleasant.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    The interview process wasn't bad, the hiring process however is incredibly tedious and ridiculous. There are numerous emails with HR, forms to be filled out online, some people get emails saying they were overlooked for the position from HR then get called for an interview, and some people get overlooked then hired when the revolving door opens again. Turnover is incredibly high.

    There was none. You get 12 an hour and a decent benefits package. HP located in Rock County because its impoverished and they can offer low pay as a carrot to hire people. Unfortunately people constantly quit or leave for better jobs or get fired.

    Straight forward. It was a large increase, even though I asked for a large increase over my last job, so no real negotiation.

    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

    NOC Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was first a phone interview with the hiring manager that took 30 minutes. After that, there's an on-site interview with four people, half an hour each, totaling to 2 hours. The first half hour is just the hiring manager again explaining the job in detail, so there's really only three interviews, one with another NOC technician and two other supervisors.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing out of the ordinary. Almost all questions are based off what's on your resume, and a few situational questions such as dealing with angry customers. Most of the time it's just conversational chit-chat, may not have anything to do with the job.   Answer Question
