    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (San Francisco, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Met with several decision makers and in several different formats. Team was very distributed so we met on the phone several times. All were very professional and asked relevant questions. Was unclear on the next steps and often changed meeting times. Once I had the offer, it was about a week to do a background check verifying my past employment and education.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Whole process took about 4 months. Interview with hiring manager and another manager then did a demo fo a panel that included the hiring manager,plus another manager and the director and a final interview with the Manager of the Sales team I'd be working with. This occurred before all the acquisitions. Organization was pretty flat and still had to old HP culture, so I have no idea what the process would be like today, but it was pretty lenghtly when I joined some 7 years ago.

    Negotiation

    I came from a competitor so the offer was very good. I received a bump on my salary and I was happy with the additional perks to would be getting, so I accepted.
