    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at HP Hood.

    Interview

    The whole process took about 4 days. I applied through a recruiting agency and they called me in for an interview the next day. It was a pretty simple interview. We went over my experience and went on a tour. There was one actual interviewer and other visitors stopped by and asked 1 or 2 questions at most. It seemed like they just wanted to hang out for a bit and didn't care that I was interviewing. Still, everyone seemed very nice. The interviewer was impressed with my knowledge about the company and my enthusiasm for the position. I was offered the job an hour later.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HP Hood in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was asked questions by a panel which consisted of three supervisors. The interview took about an hour and was fairly straight forward. My advice is to be yourself and ask questions pertaining to the job like who you will be working with and what you will be doing. Also prepare for the questions like what would you do if you had a heavy work load and needed to meet a deadline.
