Systems Analyst Interview

Systems Analyst
Herndon, VA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in June 2011.

Interview Details – I applied for a job listing online, a few days later I received a email from an HR employee requesting my resume and cover letter. After I sent my information over it took about a day for them to schedule a phone interview. They asked me basic questions about my life goals, what drives me as a person and what I wanted from a job. The phone interview went well and I was invited to come in to Herndon for a group interview. They asked me basic interview questions again and it was about 6 or 7 of the people I would be working with daily. I asked them a ton of questions and they asked me a ton of questions as well. Apparently I was down to the final two and they went with me because they felt I would fit in better.

I did prepare a great deal for each interview, thats why I feel I was so comfortable. I would say if you prepare and do your homework before the meeting, you will be fine. I have been with the company for less than a year but I do enjoy coming to work everyday. It was a great choice for me.

Interview Question – why do you want this job? What sets you apart from the other interviewees?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate, I was happy with the initial offer. But a few days after I accepted the offer, they came back and stated that they wanted to increase my offer so you could imagine how happy I was / am.

Systems Analyst Interview

Systems Analyst
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in November 2010.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the hiring manager for a phone interview and answered behavioral questions. I completed interview with Team Lead. I was contacted by the hiring Manager to further discuss the position and was asked to come in for a campus interview. Initially with first contact from the hiring manager i made it clear that i lived in another city and that i was looking to relocate to Houston. The hiring manager indicated that for the campus interview I would be responsible for getting to Houston on my own. I purchased a airlinr ticket and accept the campus interview. The interview with lunch ended up being approximately 5 hours. That was almost 3 months ago and they did not even bother to followup and say we decided to go with another candidate. Of course this is quite obvious now but that's the very least that they could have done.

Systems Analyst Interview

Systems Analyst
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in July 2013.

Interview Details – I applied on company website and an HR rep from Mexico emailed me to setup a phone interview. She had a 15 screening (tell me about you, why HP etc.) and scheduled an conference call with the manager and a senior analyst. She mentioned that I will be supporting government clients and will be working from home. Most questions at the second interview were easy (project related, general technical). It lasted for 45 minutes and next week the HR emailed that I did not get the job.
