    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through a recruiter. Was called in straight to the HP campus for an interview once the managers there got hold of my resume. Got to the interview late as navigating through the HP campus is not the easiest task. Interview was mostly of my background and they kept asking questions from my resume. There were couple of technical questions but they weren't the most challenging. The interviewers shared the same background as me so that helped me a lot. It lasted about 40 minutes. I was called 2 Hours later and I accepted the offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. It began with a brief phone screening and then a face-to-face interview. My face-to-face interview was a panel interview that consisted of the person who would have been my supervisor along with one of the existing interns. The panel was very friendly and made it feel like they genuinely wanted to get to know me. Most of the interview questions were behavioral.
