HP Internship program

Among the top 25 internship companies in the world recognized by Glassdoor, HP Intern Program welcomes more than 2,300 students every year in more than forty-five countries across the globe. HP Intern Program is built around our employee-centric people strategy. So each intern’s experience is not just a resume-builder, but an experience-builder. We view our interns as our potential next-generation leaders. We offer them not only challenging work projects, but a chance to challenge the status quo and make an impact in the technology world. Many of our interns work on big projects in HP core focus areas – cloud, big data and security – and are vital part of teams bringing totally new product categories – such as Sprout – to life. In addition to core tech internships, HP offers business, HR, supply chain and finance students opportunity to boost their career by experiencing innovation in all aspects of a global market leading business. Allowing our interns to interact with and learn from each other is a big part of what makes our program a success. Our intensive learning maps allow interns, coaches, and mentors everywhere to connect and share ideas and challenges, and our signature intern events give our interns a chance to get real face-to-face time with decision-makers within the company.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Good environment. Lot's of opportunity to learn and move around and try new things. There's plenty to do.

    Cons

    In such a big company it's very difficult to shine or stand out. The rewards get trimmed down more and more every year. Just when you thought they ran out of ways to cheap-out on rewarding employees, they come up with some new and insulting "rewards system" which is just a new way to give less to employees. Bonuses have reduced to a trickle over the years along with raises.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your people. Stop getting greedier and craftier in inventing ways to not reward employees. Giving me "points" and merit badges (yes, this is how they actually reward us) doesn't help me pay my bills.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter. The first round consisted of basic behavioral/fit questions. The second round was a combination of behavioral and lightly technical questions. Most of my issues from the interview process stemmed from how unprofessional and inconsiderate the recruiters were. My initial interview was rescheduled last minute which I didn't mind because I understand that things happen; however, after having expressed that I had an offer deadline with another company, I never heard back from HP after my second round interview. I attempted to follow up three times over the course of two months and still heard nothing. This is very unprofessional as many candidates such as myself like to receive feedback post interviews or at the very least be notified whether or not their candidacy is still being considered for a position.
