    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Questions that did not pertain to the position applied for at all. It was almost like they google "questions to ask in an interview" and printed them out and read them word for word. Questions such as "if you were in a position where someone was mad at you how would you talk them out of being mad at you". Just lame. Nothing to do with my IT skills at all.

    Interview Questions
    • If someone was being mad to you how would you talk them out of being mad at you.   Answer Question
    • Describe a situation where you failed and how did you make a comeback.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    After 1 month and 2 weeks from the time I submitted my application, I was scheduled for an exam. After passing the exam, waited another week for the initial panel interview with two Team Leads. Interview was okay, not too technical. After 4 days, I was scheduled for a final interview with a manager. Questions were almost the same as with the initial interview. Received an invite for the Job Offer after 3 days. Asked HR to give me 24 hours to think about it. The day after, signed and processed the pre-employment requirements.
