    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    Had a contact through someone I knew, who was able to pass around my resume. Process took longer than usual because they were in the middle of reorganizing their team structure, but eventually got a call to set up an in person interview. Met with 4 people, first guy generally tried to get a feel for my personality, second guy picked apart my resume, third guy handed me a packet of code and asked me what it did, third guy was more technical with questions about OOP and inheritance. I got the feeling that I answered the questions to their satisfaction, everyone was very pleasant.

    Got a call 2 weeks later saying I would be receiving an offer letter by email.

    There was no hiring or interview process as HP bought the company I was with and so I transitioned over without this process but a few others had to re-interview. There was a major re-alignment of job titles, organizations and management at the time and several afterwards, but no further interviews were required.

    Interview Details

    Professional people working in a company that is struggling to find it's way back to the top. The interview was more about finding ways to weed you out, rather than determining if you were a good fit for the company. Some of the people that were part of the interview seemed like they didn't want to be there and were just doing the interview to appease their boss.

    Interview Details

    The team that I got into needed to be staffed very quickly. So the hiring process was quick for me. Pretty standard interview process - There was a phone screening. After that, two rounds of technical interviews that were one hour each. Subsequently there was a phone interview with an engineer from the US office. The hiring process was not that complex too. The HR department needed some prodding, but they communicated pretty quickly as well.
