    Telephone Interview. In person interview. Hired quickly, but details took a long time.
    Professional interview with specific questions targeted to understand background and experience. Interviewed at company in managers office. Bleek building décor inside, nothing that demonstrates the company culture or personality.

    To get to this service requires that I put in color place inter exterior paint and talk about something that is meaningful to the rest of the world like windows 7 and energy efficient printers that sit on my desk. So, if this is something that you find value in fine. I just want to get to the end goal here.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Communication was done initially by email, to arrange the phone interview and the assessment day afterwards. The phone interview had some standard questions, aimed at getting a general impression about the skills and the personality of the candidate. The phone interview was well organized, as was the assessment day.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    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. :)
