    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The interviewers were very professional and concentrated more on what do I currently do and how I do things. there were no silly or jargon questions. I advise all the future candidates to prepare a well understanding of their current market and to show that they have an understanding of the HP's targeted maket or product. knowledge of the market was more important that the knowledge about the products, the ability to learn and adapt and comply to corporate policies seemed the most important.
