    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Roseville, CA (US)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Generally tested on networking fundamentals and a little about every required prerequisite for the specific position that I applied for. There were also questions on data structures and other general software engineering questions. Finally, they asked about any side projects and honors/accomplishments. It was nice to see that every part of my resume was valued and not only strictly my credentials or knowledge with specific programming languages.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Houston, TX (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, phone call with manager, and then an onsite interview of three 30-min rounds. Was the easiest interview I went through for a full time job. HR is HORRIBLE though, and this extends to working at HPE also. They took close to two months after the manager told me I got he job to get everything processed. They didn't even respond to email from me, my manager, and the recruiter for about two weeks.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Westborough, MA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    This experience is from April earlier this year; I graduated in May. I interviewed for Systems/Software Engineer for the HPE Performance Engineering (Simplivity) group in Westborough, MA.

    As part of a course for my CS masters degree, I was developing an application for another HPE group from MA (NOT the one I interviewed for, though). I had that on my resume and had applied online, which caught the manager's eye. He emailed and we scheduled a phone screen, which went smoothly. We mostly discussed this current HPE school project, my background and his expectations for the role. At the end of the call he invited me for an onsite interview next week.

    The onsite interview went extremely smoothly as well. I was offered coffee, shown around the office and cafeteria, and then had 4 rounds. 2 rounds were with 1 person each, and 2 with 2 people each. They were all part of the same team.
    1st round: Manager again. More detailed talk about background, explained a couple projects on whiteboard with diagrams and flow.
    2nd round: 2 folks, 1 older and one late 20's/early 30's. Talked about projects with explanation on whiteboard, behavioral questions, hobbies etc.
    3rd round: 2 folks, both aged. Discussed the HPE project, other masters and undergrad projects.
    4th round: A senior guy, I think he was the Director of the group/branch. This round was mostly me asking him questions about the role, team, and the company in general.

    2 weeks later I was reached out to by a recruiter, she asked for my visa situation, possible start date, salary expectations etc. WRT salary, I told I am fresh out of grad school and don't have a figure in mind, and am flexible. She hinted I should get an offer soon. I had another offer waiting so I tried to get a formal offer quickly. 4-5 days after that (2 days before the other offer expired), I received an offer of $85k base, some stocks, and general (albeit good) benefits. I negotiated a bit on the basis of the other offer. HR then reached out on the last day of the expiration of the other offer, and sent a written offer of $90k, and an additional $7k in relocation expenses. I accepted the offer.

    Fast forward to early August, and I am about to start working. I had to move the joining date forward as I was waiting for my EAD card process to be completed. The HR and manager were very patient throughout, and I'm quite pleased!
