    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Austin, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I applied throughout the HP career site. About a month later the hiring manager emailed me to setup a time for a phone interview. However I ended up having a phone interview with his lead java engineer. The phone interview was quite easy and quick. Then I was invited for an in person interview next week. This interview lasted about 3 hours. For each hour I interviewed with two different people, which makes 6 people in total. I was not given an offer but the lead engineer offered me his recommendation for other HP positions. All of the interviewers were very kind and friendly. The technical questions require some preparation if your knowledge is not fresh enough.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Dublin, OH) in November 2010.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of telephonic rounds of two or more people at the time grilling on software fundamentals. Data Structures, Enterprise Java Beans - Transaction Management. Describing in detail about current projects was more lengthy but exhausting process. In the end I got the offer which I joined 3 months later.
