    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Sofia (Bulgaria)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process is long. It takes about 1-3 months and there are several interviews. The first interview is over the phone with an HR employee - they check your language skills and ask about desired salary. The second interview is with technical personal - you take a technical test and you get a lot of questions in you desired field of work (in my case - network related questions). If you pass the second, there is a third interview with the manager / Technical Lead of the team - the questions here are once again about desired salary and you can get more information regarding the team, your responsibilities and other organizational questions.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the biggest thing you have achieved in your life?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    From my experience, HP has a more or less fixed salary margins for every position. If you ask for less than the minimum, they most likely will propose more (their minimum or around it). If you ask for more that there maximum for the position, it is likely that they will ask you to reconsider your desired salary.
