- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA) in September 2015.
The hiring manager emailed the same day I applied. I didn't have any work experience, and they wanted to know if I'd done any projects. I said I had, in college. Unfortunately, I guess I didn't have what they were looking for, and chose not to go any further in the interview process.

2 separate phone calls - one with a future peer and the other with the hiring manager. Great questions, casual interview, focused on your interest to work for the company first and then, the questions became incrementally harder to figure out as to whether you ARE a good fit for the position.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2015.
I had 3 phone interviews (recruiter, manager, and peer) totaling about 3 hours and 1 on-site panel interview in Palo Alto (Case study, personality fit, and behavioral questions) which totaled 3 hours. It seemed like a very detail oriented process where HR strategy skills were very important. This process took over 3 months. All questions were concerning HR organization development and things specifically from you resume.

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA).
I met HP at one of the national conferences and immediately hit it off with the team. Everyone was super nice and really pleasant to speak with. They seem to have a great culture The first interview was in person at the conference and we just talked about my interest in the company. The second interview was in CA (there was an expedited process for MBA students). The company brought in 6 students from all around the country and put us up in NICE hotels. They really rolled out the red carpet. Each candidate had 3 interviews and a lunch that day with other HP interns. Honestly, it was great and I regret not taking the offer.
- The interview questions were pretty standard (why HP, what do you want to do within HP, tell me about a time you lead a project, etc.) Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA) in April 2015.
Phone interview with dozens of questions, some of which were very ambiguous. Many questions had multiple answers based on the assumed subject or emphasis. Was this done to confuse the interviewee? Or, to check his/her knowledge or lack of it?

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA).
They came to my campus, and there was an initial screening interview of 30 minutes with a senior-level employee. I got offered a second round on the spot at the interview, and the second round took place about a week later at the campus. The second round was an all-day event that involved four separate 45 minute interviews with senior level employees. Got the offer call 3 days later.

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Sunnyvale, CA).
I was asked to create a deck that summarized and make recommendations around the registration flow. Once that was reviewed I was brought in for 5-6 people to interview me in-person. It was the typical mix of Engineering and Product leads, ending with the VP of Product. My interview with the VP was unceremoniously terminated the moment she established I had no degree. Apparently HP don't screen candidates very well and their exec staff aren't particularly well mannered.
