    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a Graduate position at HP in Erskine, Scotland. The telephone interview was basic competency questions - really to check your not an idiot. The assessment center was very casual and laid back - a ten-minute presentation was expected of me on a chosen statement out of 5 sent in an email. I went for 'Cloud computing is the future of IT'. After I did my presentation on the day in the morning, we had a small break then I done my 'hot-swap' interviews amongst 3 members of staff for 10 minutes at a time. The questions posed were not very difficult at all, and the wole day lasted just under 3.5 hours. Very, very casual.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    After filling out initial application form I then received a call in which I was asked some basic competency based questions and a general overview of the graduate scheme. After this I was invited to St. James Park for an assessment centre, we first had to take part in a group task in which we had to organise a way to get off a deserted island within a specific time frame, whilst current HP employees watched us. After this we were then taken to private boxes within the stadium to have our one to one interviews, here we were asked simple basic competency questions and were asked if we had any questions about the scheme and what it's like to work with the company. Finally we were given 10 minutes to prepare for a 5 minute presentation on 'Why do you want to work for HP'

    Interview Questions
    • Make sure you prepare fully for the presentation topic, if possible see if people in earlier assessment centre's have posted what the question may be online.   Answer Question
