Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in November 2015.

Interview

After being contacted by the recruiter, a phone interview was setup with the hiring manager. At the scheduled time, the hiring manager called and the interview was conducted over the phone. The hiring manager was cordial, professional and friendly. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and I was told that he had other candidates to interview and that a decision would be made by the end of the year for a January 2016 start date.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in September 2014.

    Interview

    There was an initial HR screening phone interview to check skills, reason for applying, and education. Took about 30 minutes. Two weeks later, the hiring manager arranged a phone screen interview. If selected, there will then be a panel in-person or video teleconference interview.

    You could tell the hiring manager either hadn't interviewed for awhile or the HP HR department makes them stick to the usual suspect list of questions to ask: Strengths, Weaknesses.

    Interview Questions

    • Usually an interview starts with an opening and story with the "getting to know you", but the manager first asked- what questions do you have about the job? Slightly threw me off because I'm used to listening for cues during the interview to then ask a probing question near the end.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    - 2 phone screens
    - 3 in person interviews

    Reasonably structured process, interviewed with team; offer decision was made within a week and communicated. Interviews were typical with some behavioral and personal questions. Seemed to depend quite a bit on how much you got along with the interviewer. Offer letter received within another week with 2 weeks to make decision.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiated on pay (moderate increase on base pay; lot more flexibility on starting bonus)
