    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    Started with one phone interview, basic background questions. Then followed up by three on-site interviews with various questions on previous projects, ODM/vendor experiences, and solutions for real-life development issues.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you give me some creative ways to acquire component samples from a vendor of no partner history? and we need it for engineering validation in two days.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    not much negotiation. I gave my ideal #, the hiring manager gave his to the HR, and the HR recruiter made the last call. So take it or leave it.

    Interview

    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

    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

    The interview is in 3 or 4 stages depending on if there is a recruiter.
    1.Recruiter

    Interviews were straight to the point. They wanted to know about direct projects and duties covered in previous positions.

    They will ask about times of adversity in the workplace and how you handled.
    They will ask about timelines/ deadlines and how you work with people not meeting them.
    They will ask about self discipline and time management.

    Be prepared to to tell stories of previous encounters, projects and success stories.

    It took 6 weeks to negotiate salary and job level. This was partly due to end of year numbers.
