My work here matters.

Uppers

Great environment, fun and not boring work, great pay, sharp people to work around, endless resources for continued development

lack of more structured training


Advice to Potential Interns

To be professional in all that you do at work. I think some interns feel that only some work needs to be done as professional as possible when it all should be done this way.


Advice to Management

The only thing I think could be improved would be a more structured form of training.

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.

4.9 of 5 stars

Ohio State Student Takes on Role of Assistant Account Executive and Learns How and Where the Hands Must Get Dirty
Columbus, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The pay was fantastic, over $20 an hour. Everyone from the bosses to the people you work daily with show you the utmost respect and value your opinions. You are giving many opportunities to showcase your talents and trusted with various projects that are actually beneficial to the team.


Downers

Sometimes I would get a task that was mundane, but it was a rarity. The only real con that happened on more than one occasion was I wouldn't have much to do. It wasn't the boss' fault that it was a slow week, but it would get boring on those rare occasions.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't think of HP as a computer company, they are so much more than that. Yes, they have jobs for people looking to develop software or hardware, but they also have a very big consulting department. Remember too that they look for all types of candidates, I am a finance major and was able to fill the role as a project analyst on a project they had.


Sample Interview Questions

Basic interview questions; ie: a time you struggled with someone and what you did about it, are you a leader or follower.


Advice to Management

It was all great.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Great opportunity for gaining experience with a leading information technology company.
San Antonio, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Being able to interact with knowledgeable co-workers and an opportunity for hands-on experience with technology.


Downers

Our immediate team only consisted of a few people.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would advise them not to miss out on a great opportunity to advance their skill base. Working with this company will open up doors for them in many areas to choose a career from.


Sample Interview Questions

What are you experiences so far with hardware support?

Tell me about your strengths/weaknesses.


Advice to Management

I enjoy all the opportunities that this company provides as far as training in concerned. I would recommend encouraging employees to give more feedback on compensation.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Great Experience at HP
Boise, ID | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The People that I worked with. Job was very Interesting. Had organization wide impact.


Downers

The commute, it was 30 mins away, so had to work around traffic.


Advice to Potential Interns

Corporations sometimes have a stigma, especially against startups. Give the corporation a chance, they provide more opportunities to do cool stuff and have the infrastructure to give you benefits/etc. Excellent company to work for.


Sample Interview Questions

State Machine questions, Programming Practice Questions. Code review.


Would You Recommend

Yes
