Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview

I had a phone interview for about an hour. The team manager and two senior analysts called me. The interview was fair. Not very difficult. They seemed to be interested in my experiences. There was a balance of theoretical/working knowledge questions. Three days later, HR contacted me. HR emailed me questions and I answered them. I got a call one week later about the offer.

    Interview

    College Hire process was excellent. The person came to the campus and was very professional providing information about HP and the jobs they were hiring for. After that a recruiter picked up my resume and I was called in for 2 other interviews for 2 different opportunities. Both were all day interviews taking me to lunch and the first one I did not get hired but was hired for the 2nd opportunity.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    There were a total of three phone interviews: 1. The HR Interview 2. The Team Interview 3. The Hiring Manager Interview. All interviews were behavioral and felt like a conversation and not an interview. They wanted to see my thought process and how I make decisions more so than what I learned in the classroom.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Conway, AR).

    Interview

    The process began at an on-campus career fair where I talked to a gentleman from HP who took my information and gave me a job number to apply with on their careers website. After I applied I waited about a week and received a call to schedule a phone interview the next week. When it was time for me to get called for the phone interview I was never contacted. I waited two weeks with no word whatsoever and I was finally contacted again by a different person wanting salary information and a few other details. About a week later I was contacted again to set up another phone interview which ended up taking place the next week. After that interview I waited one more week and I was contacted by someone who offered me a position.

    Interview Questions

      Knowledge of Waterfall and Agile methodologies.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation in my process and after asking around I haven't heard of any for anyone else either. They make it very clear that what they offer is what you will get.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in October 2014.

    Interview

    One interview, walked in 30 minutes early and they took me up 15 minutes before the scheduled time, sat with the entire team and talked/answered questions/asked questions the whole time. I was surprised at how easy the questions were, classic interview questions but it wasn't uptight or anything, they were all really accommodating and friendly, great group of professionals.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Houston, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    All I had was a phone interview for about 15 mins and I landed the job. Very simple- never even met my manager till about a year after I was hired because of his location. He at the time was in Germany and I was in Houston. I applied online through the HP website. He called me after receiving my application- which was shocking because I had just graduate with little to no experience. I was very honest and told my manager things I want to learn and grow in. We spent about 15 mins talking and a week later I received a phone call with a job offer. It took about 2 weeks to get the screening process complete and before I knew I had my own cube with my name on it!
