    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Fremont, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone call from the R&D Manager to see if I was a match for the position. Then said 2 developers will follow up with me for interviews. Didn't hear anything for 2 weeks, and after following up set up 2 phone interviews(same day, asked me Java/DS/Sorting Ques) and passed them. Then was asked for another phone interview(Mostly resume based and technology I had used) and after passing that invited onsite for an interview. Onsite interview had 3 technical and 1 leadership. The 3 technical had questions about my projects, a puzzle kind of question, Java(static, synchronized, etc), code how to find circular loop in linked list, more resume and other behavioral questions. Was told the decision will be made in a week, but after following up twice and hearing back once about looking into it, haven't heard anything. Almost been a month and a half. Interviews and experience with interviewers were positive, but lack of responsiveness during the process was not. Kind of disappointed in the end as I feel I wasted all my time for no reason.

    • Questions about a synchronized static method and the way they change when object calls the method.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (San Ramon, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    (All phone interviews) The interview was only conducted because I had a direct recommendation from an internal rep who has the same role. I spoke with 3 managers then a field rep of the territory I would be covering, to which all of them said that i would be a great fit for the position. No one called. I reached out, no communication. Months later I heard a position was open again and i went through the same process, 3 managers and the field rep of the territory. The hiring manager says they were going to bring me on board but this process was stopped once they found out they weren't allowing any new CA employees. (might have to do with the company split)

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a little about yourself and why you would be a great fit for this role.   Answer Question
