    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Phoneton, OH) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews. They cannot conduct face to face interviews for contract employees. Both interviews were with the hiring manager who I loved working for. Very average in terms of questions asked and it was pretty informal. At the time the interview process was based on my overall experience and employee recommendations - I had worked with a few people in past jobs and came highly recommended, based on the software solutions that were hiring. i applied, they called me 2 weeks later, had two phone interviews, and was hired. I was lucky enough to apply for a position that needed to be filled immediately, I heard other people had a tougher experience

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Chandigarh (India)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Total three rounds of interview. Technical Round, Managerial Round and HR. Those who cleared the MCQ test with more than 85% were asked for the technical and the HR only.

    In technical round, questions from various data structures were asked. Few programs to write in any preferred language. Some creative and innovative ideas from resume was also explored the interviewer. Very friendly interview. No stress.

    The HR person was also very friendly. I did my summer internship from HP. So, most of the talks was related to the internship location (Bangalore). He asked couple of things around Bangalore corner. And asked if I had problem getting location there. Some stereo questions, which every HR puts in front, like why should we hire you? Ready for night shift?
