I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in October 2010.
Interview Details – Phone screening with multiple interviews spanning a whole business day. The phone screening looked for basic knowledge and experience. I was innitially applying for an engineering support position, which led to an on-site interview in San Diego, CA but after that interview they wanted me for a different embedded firmware engineer position in Vancouver, WA. I interviewed in Vancouver (similar format, all-day multiple 1:1 interviews to check my knowledge and skills) and was offered a position there, which I took (best job EVER!)

Interview Details – Long slow process, I was an internal candidate. HP is probably the slowest moving high tech company in the world. It takes forever for them to make a simple decision. So the decision to hire someone took even longer. The questions were simple and mostly process related. A few questions in regards to PMI methods. Some team questions, and that was about it.
Negotiation Details – No negotating at all , basically it was a low ball take it or leave it offer.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in May 2008.
Interview Details – This was back in 2006. HP called me after finding my resume. They needed someone to start fast, and the interviewing process happened quickly. I should also mention that after moving me to the Vancouver area, they laid me off about a year later. And practically shut down the Vancouver office in subsequent lay offs. Hopefully with Hurd's departure, the company will turn around.

I was asked if I was a US citizen, which was referred as an illegal interview question by some websites. Combining with other questions asked during the interview, I felt like there was something subtle at HP.

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in May 2010.
Interview Details – This interview process began after I filed an online application. I was contacted by HP for a technical phone screening where they asked me statics and dynamics questions. I was invited for an on-site interview right after the phone interview. The entire on-site interview process took about 6 hours. Three of the interview were technical, where they asked about simple static problems to open-ended troubleshoot questions. Only one interview with the hiring managers was behavioral based, where they also asked about salary expectations and concerns regarding whether I will accept the offer or not. I was contacted by the company the next day after the interview and received an offer.
I would say the technical interviews were not difficult provided that you know about the fundamentals of engineering. People were friendly, energetic and helpful. The office has sufficient lighting so I'm sure that I can focus on my work. The work environment seemed to be relaxing.
