Boise, ID | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people I get to work with! I have the best boss and coworkers! Everyone is so friendly and more than willing to help if you need it - you just have to ask. People are also very willing to sit down with the interns over lunch or a short meeting to discuss what they do so the interns can get a better look into other parts of the business.


Downers

I haven't disliked anything yet


Advice to Potential Interns

Do your research on the company before the interview - and be ready to learn if you get the position. Expect to be confused about the business for the first few months - it's normal. But you will learn more than you can imagine.

HP really needs on-site Human Resources and Payroll representatives, in the same way that they have on-site IT personnel.

An excellent opportunity to learn many things.
Sao Paulo | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to learn in practice what you are studying at the university, and meet a lot of people.


Downers

I think the internship in HP, is being very important to me, and I can not complain about nothing, since the beginning I was very well received by my workmates, mainly by my manager, that helped me a lot, in all activities. The only thing that I can highlight in this question is: The HP it's a big company, there is a lot of areas, when I started work here, I felt a little bit lost, because HP have a lot of information. So I think that HP can improve this situation, but the rest are perfect.


Advice to Potential Interns

The candidate can be sure, that HP is a great company to do your internship, here you can learn too much, and the HP is open to invest in your potential, the company trust in your potential. Here you have a good relation with your manager, or who you are report for. You will have here, a good plan to your career , and to your future.


Sample Interview Questions

What do you like to do in your free time?

HP is very flexible, I can not complain about nothing, the work place is very nice. There is a lot of program to all employees, we feel that HP want to maintain your employee here, want that your employee be happy not just inside of the company, but in you whole life.

An amazing experience where you can get involved, learn, and have room to grow with full-time opportunities.
Lexington, KY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The work I was given was real and useful to the company.


Downers

At one point, for a few months, I had to share a cubicle.


Advice to Potential Interns

Never be afraid to ask questions. It's just another way to learn!


Sample Interview Questions

What is polymorphism? In C and C++, what is the difference between 'new' and 'malloc'? Write a section of code that will reverse an array of characters. There is plane ready to be boarded by 100 passengers. The first person in line is an old woman with bad eye sight. Because she can't see her seat number on her boarding pass, she picks a seat at random. What are the odds that you, being the 100th passenger to board the plane, will be able to sit in your assigned seat?


Advice to Management

A set process of going from intern to full-time. Right now, no one really knows if they will get an offer or not, or if it's even being considered. Some interns at our site have left due to there not being any structured plan. Whether it be "you work and when you graduate you are interviewed," or "you work until you graduate and if we haven't fired you yet you get a job," or anything in between, it's important for the interns to know what to expect for the future.
