Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in September 2014.

Interview Details

There was an initial HR screening phone interview to check skills, reason for applying, and education. Took about 30 minutes. Two weeks later, the hiring manager arranged a phone screen interview. If selected, there will then be a panel in-person or video teleconference interview.

You could tell the hiring manager either hadn't interviewed for awhile or the HP HR department makes them stick to the usual suspect list of questions to ask: Strengths, Weaknesses.

Interview Questions
  • Usually an interview starts with an opening and story with the "getting to know you", but the manager first asked- what questions do you have about the job? Slightly threw me off because I'm used to listening for cues during the interview to then ask a probing question near the end.   View Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    - 2 phone screens
    - 3 in person interviews

    Reasonably structured process, interviewed with team; offer decision was made within a week and communicated. Interviews were typical with some behavioral and personal questions. Seemed to depend quite a bit on how much you got along with the interviewer. Offer letter received within another week with 2 weeks to make decision.

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    My resume shortlised and they scheduled interview at 11:30amwhitefiled ofc .After more than an hr wait got someone spoke to me for around 30mins. It was good discussion asking about few tech and management related questions. Then again made me wait for an hr. Had someone very unprofessional at other end who hid behind some paper and writing after asking question. Bad english, horrible body language. Did not have any soft skills to interview and asked few derogatory question totaly unacceptable.
    At one point i have to throw question back at interviwer as she was annoying me

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with hiring manager as well as 3 peers to the role for which I was being interviewed. Each interview lasted about an hour. Process was straightforward. Offered job over the phone without meeting anyone face to face, which is strange for some but not unusual for a remote/virtual role. Also, I had the benefit of being heavily recommended within the group.
