Pretty informal interview process for new hires. You interview with about 5 or 6 thermal engineers and/or managers on site.
Questions cover the general background questions, how do you deal with multi-tasking projects, how do you deal with conflict in the workplace.
Also questions regarding why would you like to join our team are asked.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Houston, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Received an email from the hiring manager 2-3 days after applying for the position, who asked to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was simply a brief review of my skills and competencies and a detailed description of job responsibilities. Manager was friendly and positive, and stated that I would be contacted by HR to set up an on-site interview. Travel was arranged within the week by the company, and the on-site interview, conducted a week later, involved several 1:1 discussions with various members of the team. Team members were most interested in my research topics and understanding of heat transfer, and they welcomed my questions about their work. The interview process took about 4 hours, ending with the manager informing me that I can expect an offer. A day later, an official offer was extended, which I accepted.

    Negotiation

    Before leaving I informed the manager of other offers and interviews I was expecting (without getting too specific), and I believe that helped expedite the hiring process to some degree.
