Great experience and learned so much more in the last 2 months than I have in school.
Palo Alto, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.

Organization of work... project goals could have been presented in a clearer format

HP is a great place to work. Even though it may be difficult to find a job at HP, it is easy to find meaningful work that you may enjoy working on.

Which of these two objects has a higher viscosity...

Define what lower surface energy looks like...

Advice to Management

Hire more young people. It should be simpler for new employees to follow say ten steps to get paperwork and training taken care of. It was a little misguided at first.

Real full-time job experience in industry. Flexibility of projects and learning opportunities.
Vancouver | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

My manager treated me like a normal, full-time employee. I received real work and was given creative license on my project. The group of interns on site were also very social and offered many out-of-work opportunities.


Downers

Once my project was done, I didn't have enough time to do another complete project. I ended up spending the last 3 weeks doing many small bug fixes.


Advice to Potential Interns

Expect to do real work! It's easy, as an intern, to expect grunt work and to be able to slack off. That is NOT the case here. You will do work that matters to the company, and get well-compensated for it!


Sample Interview Questions

As a firmware engineer, I was asked many questions about linux, C programming, and to develop a short program to solve a problem. Knowledge of data structures is key.
