Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Boise, ID) in April 2014.

Interview

It was a telephone interview only. No tough questions. It was clear that they were working on volume rather than quality. I was recruited through a 3rd party contractor so I wasn't a direct "core" employee of Hewlett Packard, which made it easy for them to accept or reject candidates. Or in my case discard them.

Interview Questions

  • There were no difficult questions presented whatsoever. After being hired during the first day of training they made it clear that the decision was based on their perception of our personality over the phone.   1 Answer

Negotiation

There was no negotiation. It was through 3rd party contractor, the terms were non-negotiable.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in March 2014.

    Interview

    Decent, but lacked depth of exploring my skills...went too heavily on my resume. Culture seems broken, HP seems lost in the space I was skilled to work in. One potential co-worker actually called me names when I asked about work-life balance....that was all for me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in September 2009.

    Interview

    The interview went well, it had been several years since my last job interview so I was a bit nervous and unsure of what to expect. I believe that I performed well during the interview and answered the questions well. Due to time restrictions, the presentation that I had prepared for did not happen. I was told the job was mine but the internal politics took over and I was not offered the position.
