HP Internship: What its like to be an intern that actually does something - not just fetch coffee.
Sacramento, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people - everyone is so nice and it's really fun coming into the office everyday

The pay - the pay is great, no complaints here for a first job

The experience - getting real world experience really is priceless. Plus you get to build your network!


Downers

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


Advice to Potential Interns

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?


Advice to Management

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

Get an opportunity to work on miltimillion dollar accounts.
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Being able to really have my voice heard and mentored. I was given the opportunity to mold my project to be exact what I'd like it to be. Throughout the internship there are resume building workshops and mock interviews which are invaluable since they are coming directly from hiring managers.


Downers

Depending on the team you may have more down time than you'd like.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think Hp is a terrific place to work. The amount of work will depend on the team you are placed with though.


Sample Interview Questions

I was asked to build a clock but was only able to ask 6 questions about the clock I was building. I was also asked sorting questions and questions about when/why I'd use a linked list.


Advice to Management

Voice of the Workforce is cool but I'd like more things come out of it, not just a couple of things.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Greatest and most enriching experience if you are a hardworker
Other (International) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I believe that besides of learning something new every single day, I love that I am treated as if I was already a full-time worker. I have a great team, they support not only the fact that I have classes at the same time as my internship but also that I need to have personal time.


Downers

If I am honest, I love the internship. If I had to say one thing I like the least is that I do not see all of my bosses face to face, so sometimes it could be difficult to reach them... but this happens in very few, almost inexistent, times.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do not be afraid only because the organization is international and very big; the environment is great and you get support from colleagues that are even not in your same area.


Sample Interview Questions

Questions, in my case, were based on my CV and life.


Would You Recommend

Yes
