    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was reduced to a knowledge test in a field that was different from the field for position for which the interview was purportedly being conducted. Apparently a group leader from a different work group became interested and intercepted the process but failed to alert the interviewee.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Roseville, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Initially, there was a phone interview which was fairly straight-forward. If you know the basics of project management, you will have no problems with the phone interview. Do you know the phases of a waterfall project? Do you know the difference between waterfall and agile? Do you have your PMP? Can you plan a party? If you know all of these, then you'll be fine.

    The onsite panel interview is with 3 or 4 employees. You will be asked how you use a project scheduling software package to manage projects. They're looking for both personality, knowledge and overall ability.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The initial salary offer was low. If you have a rate in mind, let them know and see if they will match your rate or come close.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    Interview process was straight forward. Had two interviews, both over the phone. The first with the recruiter and the second with the manager of the branchI'd be working under, the recruiter and a third person working in the company. All parties were late to the call on the second interview and I was only given the remainder of the 30 minute call to talk about the job. Irritating but still got the right words out.
