I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in March 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online, an admin called me and set up time to talk to the hiring manager, I spoke to the hiring manager, and then to his boss over the phone. Then the hiring manager flew to town and offered me the job.

Negotiation Details – Go for the highest base salary you can because HP doesn't believe in raises. If you want more than 2 weeks vacation, negotiate that part too.
