    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Hired on-the-spot with no interview process. There was no "corporate orientation," I just started working. No on-the-job training, and they don't pay for renewal of certification (e.g., PMP) that they push you to get.

    Interview Questions
    • Like I said, there weren't any questions or interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations - I just got the going rate.

    Interview Details

    Most of the questions will be around the project management phases, try to be very detail with the phases, however avoid sounding like you are like reading it. Also they will be asking for examples where you have to delegate, create reports from data, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • There isnt any difucult question, it just a matter to relax. They dont like people to feel anxious or nervous. It will mean that you can't hold your nerves and you have a hard time to talk in public.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Avoid asking for money right away, if they feel that you are just for the money they will not make an offer. HP is fair, and will try to get you into the average
