    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The interviewers were very professional and concentrated more on what do I currently do and how I do things. there were no silly or jargon questions. I advise all the future candidates to prepare a well understanding of their current market and to show that they have an understanding of the HP's targeted maket or product. knowledge of the market was more important that the knowledge about the products, the ability to learn and adapt and comply to corporate policies seemed the most important.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in May 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple and the most easy set of interviews in my sales career. I was fortunate to meet some great recruiters in the process which resulted in me getting the job. I was not a big fan of the second phone interview only because the person who interviewed me had no sales background and it felt like she hadn't really done her homework before coming to the interview. Hey, I'm not complaining because afterall it was easier for me. :)
