    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    I applied online at noon on Friday, and in the afternoon a HP scientist emailed me to request a phone interview the next Monday. The interview tool 35 min, and the potential supervisor and a hiring manager called me. At first, the hiring manager introduced me of the projects they were doing, and the questions included my research projects, class projects on data mining, parallel programming, and C++. And at last they asked two C++ programming problems without coding, just providing thought.

    New Graduate Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I don't recommend any body to waste your time to prepare interview in HPE. Whole recruitment process took 2.5 months. They don't know how to respect employees time and effort. HR people are very busy, They don't even care about your problems. You need to beg them to process your Onboarding. They don't provide any information to new employees unless until you send them loads of emails. They even forget about your start date and when you email them regarding your start date then they will give you another new start date. You need to be very patient to join in HPE after getting the offer, because of HR team busy schedule you need to be unemployed for months also.
    I really don't have any words to appreciate them for their negligence.
