4.8 of 5 stars

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.

Come to HP ready to learn. They're looking for great minds, but you're not necessarily going to use what you studied/learned in school.

What experience do you have with financial modeling? What are some financial models that you feel comfortable with?

Tell me about a time when you saw a problem and you took initiative.

There is sometimes downtime, especially at the beginning of your internship.

ASK FOR WORK. Sitting at a desk doing nothing is BORING. Ask your manager for a project or two, keep yourself busy, have fun.

Sample Interview Questions

If you found yourself sitting at a desk, bored, what would you do?

Keep your interns busy! Too many of us sit around doing nothing for hours a day. Challenge us, give us something that will actually be beneficial to the company. It's good to feel like you matter

Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. I was never afraid to ask team members for help and if they didn't know how to answer my question, they would go out of their way to refer me to someone else who could help me.

Downers

Sometimes the office was emptier on Fridays, but still found team members easy to reach online.

Advice to Potential Interns

Flexible and stable. A lot of people in the office tend to work at home and all meetings are done on the phone.
