I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in January 2013.
Interview Details – The employee hiring and interview process was thorough and professional. They had an initial phone screening interview with a department manager and later the assistant manager to the hiring manager did a full face-to-face interview. This of course might vary depending on the circumstances and the process of each department.
Interview Question – They asked comprehensive questions that were correctly 'behavior oriented.' They asked me to take them through the processes of how I handled various business situations and asked in depth questions to determine my depth of knowledge of the position. None were difficult to me as I was very seasoned in the role for over 10 years. Answer Question

Negotiation Details – NA
The process took 3 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in August 2010.
Interview Details – I never had any interaction with Human Resources. I was contacted for a phone interview by the individual that I would be replacing. The initial phone interview lasted 30 minutes and it went well. The caller was professional and spoke well about the position and the requirements. I was then contacted by the hiring manager to meet at the HP campus. That interview lasted an hour and the hiring manager asked some challenging behavioral questions but kept the tone comfortable and professional. The manager also provided good information about the job and working environment at HP. Then I met with an employee who would be a peer, who asked some questions about my experience and offered some insight on projects in the group. That lasted half an hour. Then I met with the group director for about 10 minutes. The director was still angry from a prior meeting, controlled the conversation and was generally difficult to communicate with, and maintained an intimidating persona throughout the interview. The director left abruptly and I was shown out the building. The hiring manager contacted me the next day and asked to schedule two more interviews with project managers.
Reason for Declining – The group director told me that I appeared to be coming in from a senior position, but it was the director's opinion that recent college graduates with a few years experience could perform just as well, and my value to the director was 2 pay grades below my asking price (that would be about half the salary of my previous Program Manager job). I am over 50 and the director's remark made me feel uncomfortable. I discussed the situation with my family and withdrew my application.

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.
Interview Question – Explain a time you had to manage a troubled project thru a matrixed approval process. How did you do it and what was the outcome. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Easy. They gave me a generous number and I accepted.
