A Company That Treats You Like Family and the Opportunity to do Great Things
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I love that I can walk up to anyone, literally anyone, and they'll be very willing to help me to whatever I need. I am allowed to create my own rules and not hold anything back. I am able to participate at a global level. I am trusted by my peers and my managers to do an exceptional job.


Downers

It is pretty disorganized. There aren't any clear goals, which is a pro and a con because you can make it your own but at the same time it is hard to really understand expectations.


Advice to Potential Interns

It really is what you make of it, it can be the best thing ever or a really rough ride. make it what you will, but do everything well.

Help Technicians Service Printers in Development and Help Engineers Test Their Designs
Boise, ID | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

In my opinion, the best part of my internship was the variety and broadness of the experiences I had and the people I met. I got to work with Mechanical Engineers (my major), Electrical Engineers, the Firmware team, as well as the technicians. Based on the nature of the tasks that I completed I was able to grow a large network and know a lot of people outside of the team that I work on. I also really enjoyed the company culture of flexibility in when you show up to work, leave work, doctor's appointments, etc. I also really liked all of the hands-on stuff that I got to do.


Downers

The most frustrating thing for me was that I knew that there was a number of things I needed to do in my first few weeks, but I didn't know what I needed to do. There was no easy-access compiled list of all the HR/new hire tasks I needed to complete. The other not as desirable aspect was sometimes there simply wasn't any work for me to do, which I know was a part of the nature of the position and work, but I really liked when there was stuff for me to do.


Advice to Potential Interns

HP culture is very unique. They are pretty flexible and understanding. HP is very focused on quality. They also believe that diversity within the company is a great strength.


Sample Interview Questions

I was asked to explain the law of conservation of energy and apply it to a waterfall evaluating the energy situation before the water fell, as it was falling, and at the bottom.

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.
