    Very simple... just a few questions: couple technical, and I was hired. Two of the three shift managers showed me around the facility--huge--and explained the service level contracts. After my interview I received a very generous offer with a mile long listing of my benefit package.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Tulsa, OK) in January 2008.

    Interview

    Questions that did not pertain to the position applied for at all. It was almost like they google "questions to ask in an interview" and printed them out and read them word for word. Questions such as "if you were in a position where someone was mad at you how would you talk them out of being mad at you". Just lame. Nothing to do with my IT skills at all.

    • If someone was being mad to you how would you talk them out of being mad at you.   1 Answer
    • Describe a situation where you failed and how did you make a comeback.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was promised a salary when I was hired that I have still not seen to this day. I have now been in the position 3 years.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in July 2011.

    Interview

    After 1 month and 2 weeks from the time I submitted my application, I was scheduled for an exam. After passing the exam, waited another week for the initial panel interview with two Team Leads. Interview was okay, not too technical. After 4 days, I was scheduled for a final interview with a manager. Questions were almost the same as with the initial interview. Received an invite for the Job Offer after 3 days. Asked HR to give me 24 hours to think about it. The day after, signed and processed the pre-employment requirements.
