    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in September 2012.

    Interview

    Expect many layers and there is a high possibilitg of reschedules. You will most likely get the recruiter first over the phone and later the manager on the phone. The it can be a panel or a series of others inperson. Then lastly an interview with the hiring manager's manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions are not technical so to speak unless you are applying for very technical position like Unix or SAN or DBA. Prep for behavioral type questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary is your only negotiation point. All other benefits are by the book. There is a ceiling to salary negotiations like everyone else but HP ceiling is much lower. So be aware your wiggle room is small.

    HP is meeting intensive so be flexible in reschedules.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in January 2008.

    Interview

    HP is heavily comprised of technical managers so being knowledgeable in your field is a requirement. You'll get extra points for having certifications for processes or standards as HP used to be a "shoot-from-the-hip" organization and they realize that doesn't work anymore. Be personable and dress appropriately for the position. If it is an entry or highly technical position that isn't customer facing then you may be able to get by without a jacket (but you better be a standout). Don't look like a high-end businessman if you are looking for any technical position, that turns off most HP managers.

    Interview Questions

    • Out of the many standards and certifications existing in this specific field, which one do you believe is the more appropriate and one you follow?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It depends on the manager. Ask them some questions to determine how aggressive they are and how long they have been at HP and at their position. Ask about their boss and their relationship as that will be the determining factor in whether the manager has the ability to ask for additional benefits and if he will get support.
