    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview

    The review was done over the phone, and was pretty straightforward. Since HP is an international company, you might get reviewed by people who are in different locations. Expect general technical questions pertinent to the job you are applying for. Make sure that you know your stuff. They may also try to gauge your general personality to see if you will be a fit in their culture. If having a face to face interview make sure you are in formal attire.

    Federal Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Washington, DC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The process started with an internal HP headhunter. The headhunter was very hard to reach or nail down for a time to interview. Times were scheduled and he was unable to keep the appointment. Once I finally got past this step I interviewed (phone) with the Manager looking to fill the position. I passed that interview and had another with a counterpart who was in a different position within HP. That also went well and I was told that both interviews went well and they wanted to move forward and would call me the following week to setup an in person interview. The call never came. I made calls to both managers and headhunter to inquire about next steps and received no replies. Two weeks letter I received an form email saying the position was no longer open. Not very professional in my opinion.
