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

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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 Questions
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    To make the meeting informal from the start, step out from behind your desk. The seating arrangement should make you and the candidate equals. Then offer something to drink. Ask candidatures if they want some coffee or water, and then pour it yourself. This gesture will make it clear you aren't an ogre. Lead in with a little idle conversation and tell candidates about your company. It's also a good idea to add a little of your background into the company description - where you came from, why the company attracted you...

    There was none. After the first year, they took the worst in benefits from EDS and the worst from HP, combined them and that was the offering. Not even in the middle of the road.
