    Interview

    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.

In the end, there was frank discussion on prospects of growth and opportunity within the department.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    I was actually offered salary above my expectations, so didn't need to negotiate at all.
