Interview Details – Long day, 5 interviews in the same day. You will meet with six different people from different areas within HP. Each inteviewer talked about totally different things pertaining to the job. A little overwelhming at first, however I was made to feel at ease and it got better

Interview Question – They were all pretty basic questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The last interview of the day was reserved for the offer. It went very well, considering they were my first choice of companies to work.

Technical Consultant Interview

Technical Consultant
Alpharetta, GA

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview Details – Standard process though management appeared to lean of inexperienced personnel to do the initial; screening. My department is more interested in customer service skills rather than technical knowledge. You have to have a good balance I agree but so many people are being hired without any technical knowledge that serving the customers expeditiously is a major fail.

Interview Question – What do you have to offer HP?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – None. Take it leave it attitude. I was told verbatim. "Sorry, since you are new the field, this is what we can offer." Their loss, I have already exceeded my peers in competence, know how, professionalism, and more. I am looking for a new job now. They simply do NOT know what they have nor do they know how to foster and develop employees.

Technical Consultant Interview

Technical Consultant

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview Details – I can't advise too much in this regard in that I worked under the umbrella of HP as a contractor for over a year before they reached out to me and asked if I would be willing to transition to a FTE position. All I can offer for those of you who find yourself in this position is to work your butt off and have a true commitment to delivering a quality product.

Interview Question – I don't feel that I was asked any difficult questions. They simply asked about my experience and my personal goals.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I calculated what I was making as a contractor, added in estimated "markups" for the various layers in my contract that was made up of other subcontractors, and then marked it down slightly to represent my requested salary. It was a whole lot more than I would have expected that I could ask for, but I did and they didn't blink an eye.
