    Interview

    had a telephone interview that was succinct and detailed and felt good about it, then they called me back to come in for a face to face meeting, after skyping a meeting and detailing any answers they needed. The waiting was the hard part, but felt pretty sound after all.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Toronto, ON) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was originally interviewed for a different intern position, however the recruiter contacted me one week afterwards regarding a new position, which she thought would better suit me. It took about 3-4 tries to finally get a person-to-person interview with the manager. The recruiter herself never provided detail information (such as what specific department this position was for), nor did she provide any other important information about the position. I was more upset at the fact that literally every single time I was given a last minute cancellation or excuse as to why the manager couldn't make it, very unprofessional. Nonetheless, during the interview, the manager brought along with him another intern, and several times his phone kept ringing throughout the interview, where twice he answered his phone to speak to his family! Very, very unprofessional...what's even worse is that he was sitting right infront of me and I could see him looking at the clock every two minutes. He was asking me questions about the position and I told him very openly that I was never given any detailed information so that's why I was hoping he could provide me with detail. He ended the email by making a chart on a whiteboard of companies and payments along with units and to have me guess which company was most profitable. I was totally underprepared as I was not told any vital information by the recruiter. I would never want to work for a company that lacks professionalism, especially from management.

    Interview

    I applied on company website and an HR rep from Mexico emailed me to setup a phone interview. She had a 15 screening (tell me about you, why HP etc.) and scheduled an conference call with the manager and a senior analyst. She mentioned that I will be supporting government clients and will be working from home. Most questions at the second interview were easy (project related, general technical). It lasted for 45 minutes and next week the HR emailed that I did not get the job.
