Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview

I attended an info session at my university and interviewed for one of the speakers at my university's career center. For me, the interview was about 30% behavioral and 70% technical. My interviewer told me he would forward my responses and resume within the company and anyone who is interested will contact me. I received a phone call from someone in Corvallis and had another phone screen. I received an offer about 2 weeks later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    It was only a single 1 hour interview that took place in an adjacent room to the main lobby. This was an excellent no-BS interview that included questions of reasoning power, base applicable knowledge, and general resume questions. This interview was difficult but all of the questions seemed reasonable. I look forward to a long career at HP.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Vancouver, WA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by the hiring manager by phone, and then a formal phone interview was set up. The formal phone interview was technical, and it lasted about 1 hour. An on-site interview was scheduled about 1 week later.
    The on-site interview lasted about 7 hours. Questions were technical.
    I was asked if I was a US citizen, which was referred as an illegal interview question by some websites. Combining with other questions asked during the interview, I felt like there was something subtle at HP.

    Reasons for Declining

    The position did not seem to have enough management support. It looked like it would be a daily battle against co-workers, didn't see much chance for success or growth.
