Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (New York, NY (US)) in April 2019.

Interview

I started with a phone screening about skills and projects, then moved on to a phone interview with the head of the department. It focused more on how my skills fit than technical questions. Then I was asked to do another interview a few days later with a developer from the department. This was more technical and focused on database and language tools relevant to the position.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Houston, TX (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I was emailed by a recruiter and set up an interview at a conference I was at. I interviewed with someone in a tech management role, that wasn't a software engineer so it was more general questions and a lot of questions about my resume and past projects.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (San Jose, CA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Received an email from the recruiter to set up a phone screening. In phone screening simple C based questions like use of mod operator and resume based questions were asked. After a week I was called on site. There were 5 rounds. The interview started off very nicely. People were friendly. The main problem was they themselves were not aware of the complexities and running times of the solutions. A question on dynamic programming was asked to maximize profits whose complexity was O(n^2), but the guy insisted on having a solution with O(n). It was very difficult to convince them. The last round guy was especially very rude. He asked a string related question which was very simple. When i could solve, he started making it complicated and after some time he himself lost track of what he was asking. Overall the company is good and luckily the position was also good. But because of the people with incomplete knowledge, things could work out based on luck at the end.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Palo Alto, CA (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Phone screen from team manager and if the interest seems mutual there is a take home coding challenge they let you take your time with. Then, when you send your project and they review the code and like what they see, they ask you for an onsite. The onsite consists of meeting with the team starting from the team manager to the tech lead to teammates who all evaluate your technical skills as well as ask you about the type of person you are.
