Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in September 2012.

Interview Details – Did the entire process backwards. Responded to a post on Linkedinn in a group I follow. The manager setup a phone interview with several hiring managers of various groups that might be interested in my qualifications. Call went well, waited about a week before I received a response that I job offer was coming. Received an email with the details and once accepted, was contacted by HR to go through that process.

All in all it was approximately a month from the initial interview until I started work, very painless process.

Negotiation Details – Timing was very bad as HP just announced eliminating 29,000 employees. But I was able to negotiate a signing bonus.

Sales FIN Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Houston, TX

I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in May 2010.

Interview Details – I had three four ointerviews. With manager, with sales VPs, one with a manager that would be a collegue, and finally with the VP , manager of my manager. Questions were general.
Perhaps it made it easier that I have a long career at HP. So it is very simple for management to access my records and performance.
