Software Engineer Intern Interview

Software Engineer Intern
Palo Alto, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in April 2014.

Interview Details – I applied through an internal referral for an internship within same team. Only one round of telephonic interview with simple questions such as designing in OOPS, reverse a linked list and add a number. Got an offer within two days. After 3 weeks of the offer, got a call saying that the department is under freeze and all open positions are cancelled. Revoked the offer when just 2 weeks was present before starting the internship and spoilt all my plans.

Interview Question – Nothing too hard. Simple standard questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Late intimidation of some department being under freeze.

Financial Analyst New Graduate Interview

Financial Analyst New Graduate
Palo Alto, CA

I applied online and interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted for a phone interview with a Senior Financial Analyst. It was like your typical interview asking behavioral/personality questions. However interviewer couldn't have been more disinterested in doing the interview and it was hard to build rapport with the individual. Sounded like he was reading questions off a script and was new to interviewing.

I received an email a week or so later that I was not selected to move on as I originally expected due to my negative experience.
