    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at my university career fair and he interviewed me later that night. It was fairly laid back with a few technical questions. He e-mailed me and told me he wanted to bring me in for another interview but after I responded, he never contacted me again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Whole process took about 4 months. Interview with hiring manager and another manager then did a demo fo a panel that included the hiring manager,plus another manager and the director and a final interview with the Manager of the Sales team I'd be working with. This occurred before all the acquisitions. Organization was pretty flat and still had to old HP culture, so I have no idea what the process would be like today, but it was pretty lenghtly when I joined some 7 years ago.

    Negotiation

    I came from a competitor so the offer was very good. I received a bump on my salary and I was happy with the additional perks to would be getting, so I accepted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Newark, NJ) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Phone call interview with hiring manager. Spoke for an hour and arranged to speak with Accout rep. Sales rep approved and moved on to speaking with the HR person. Had lunch with the hiring manager who described the organization in great detail. The process was fairly short. They needed someone for a particular area and needed someone willing to be on the road most of the time. HR required a lot of paper work and that took a while to get through. Is this ever going to end?

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to cover upstate NY? What had I done with other companies? How do I compare HP products to competitors products? Am I interested in a job with HP? Do I understand how HP is organized? How much was I making and would I be willing to accept less money to join HP? I am just rambling at this point. The interview was not challenging since they really needed someone badly for the area.   Answer Question
