    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied in July. Initial phone interview was held in August and next day one on one face to face interview with the Director of the Department in the cafeteria. The questions were completely off the normal pattern. Clear description of what was expected and what HP's outlook is was provided. In the end, there was frank discussion on prospects of growth and opportunity within the department.

    Interview Questions
    • Not typical interview question. The questions were more on the lines of What makes you tick? Do you prefer Home cooked or fast food? Dogs or Cats? Car or Bike? etc..   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    The history of layoffs that was detailed in the outlook made me feel insecure about the stability of the job

    Senior Presales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    A friend of mine referred me to the hiring manager and then the whole process was very quick: one phone interview and the verbal offer came in the next business day. A written one followed within a week (due to some internal bureaucracy and probably also background checks) , which I immediately accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult, probably because I had a proven record in the field and too many people knew me within the organisation from the previous dealings.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was actually offered salary above my expectations, so didn't need to negotiate at all.
