    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I met one-on-one with three executives for about 20 minutes each. Each interviewer first asked me to describe my previous job experience and what I had been doing recently. They then asked several questions, both standard interview questions and questions meant to elaborate on my experiences and resume. The interviewers also told me about what they do and oversee in their various departments and a little about the company in general. The atmosphere was very relaxed and welcoming.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was reduced to a knowledge test in a field that was different from the field for position for which the interview was purportedly being conducted. Apparently a group leader from a different work group became interested and intercepted the process but failed to alert the interviewee.

    Interview Questions

    • Specific and grueling test of knowledge in an area different from the job sought and for which the interview was originally scheduled   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (San Jose, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by hiring manager in on-campus recruiting fair.
    In a week, hiring manager contacted me for interview.

    1st round of interview was general resume discussion with hiring manager in-person at my college.
    2nd round was telephonic technical interview and it was quite simple.

    I was again contacted by hiring manager and discussed as why I wanted to join this position and job-details.

    This entire process lasted for around 1 month and after a month I was replied by HR that they found a better candidate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (San Jose, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It took me a week to schedule first phone interview and it's only about background. HP's HR only writes one email a day, and she even didn't know the job requirement details when talking to me, I've told her that I'm looking for front-end development, and she sent me a link for this web application, but it's totally backend, the first tech interview is kind of embarrassed, it would be much better and save us engineers' time if HR could study job requirement, and candidate's resume, or even ask the career path question in the first phone call.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Palo Alto, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring manager emailed the same day I applied. I didn't have any work experience, and they wanted to know if I'd done any projects. I said I had, in college.

    Unfortunately, I guess I didn't have what they were looking for, and chose not to go any further in the interview process.
