    Systems/Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Fort Collins, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a call from an HR recruiter 24 hours later. After the initial phone screen with the recruiter, the hiring manager called for his own phone screen.

    I was invited to come in for an on-site interview a week later. On-site interview consisted of two parts: technical evaluation with the technical lead and a panel interview with the hiring manager and a developer on the team.

    After the on-site interview, the hiring manager contacted me within 24 hours to have schedule a phone interview with a different developer on the team. The interview took place a week later, was technical, C++ specific, and lasted approximately 45 minutes.

    After this final phone interview, I wrote the hiring manager to thank everyone on the team for their engagement in my interview process. The hiring manager assured me he would be making a decision soon and would let me know whether or not I was the accepted candidate.

    Three months later and I never heard back from the manager. After five separate points of contact, for a total of around five hours of interviewing, I think it was incredibly unprofessional to not even be notified that the hiring manager went with a different applicant.

    After all that I had read about HP online, I was enthusiastic and excited at the prospect of working for the company, thinking of HP as a first-choice for my employment. Now, I would begrudgingly--if at all--work for a company that values the time of its applicants (as well, apparently, as its employees) so little.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Fort Collins, CO) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Three rounds of interviews with different engineers. Mostly technical questions but also some behavioral questions were thrown in the mix. They bring you on campus if you live nearby or offer you the option to do a phone interview if you live too far away from the campus you are applying to. If you go into campus, expect the interviews to take half a day and they will buy lunch for you. Got a phone call with an offer about three weeks after the interview. Accepted the offer and worked for them for less than a year before moving to another company.
