    Anonymous Employee  in  Sydney
    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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

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