Please make the onboarding and background check procedures fast.

Everyone here is extremely glad to help out. There is a large team feeling here

Downers

Some of the work was extremely easy and brainless, but when I asked for a more complex project it seemed overwhelming

Advice to Potential Interns

Asa first internship I had no idea what to expect. But this work environment is something I can get used to

Sample Interview Questions

(I was the head lead of a team creating an autonomous robot for my school's competition)

-What do you do as the head lead?

-How are you planning to test your robot

-Next time what would you do better?

Uppers

I was provided many opportunities to learn new technologies and learn professional skills.

Downers

People are degrading. While not all permanent employees display such crude nature, you are openly told that you are not important enough, ignored, and encouraged not to ask questions.

Advice to Potential Interns

Permanent employees think they are better than you from the get go.

Sample Interview Questions

What sort of projects have you worked on in the past?

Advice to Management

Stop hiring ****, degrading people.

Would You Recommend

Yes

4.3 of 5 stars

Lansing, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best part of my internship is that I got to and get to create custom software to help everyone and increase productivity, I also enjoyed getting the chance to lead some meetings to demonstrate my software to my bosses.

Downers

I liked everything a lot with my internship but what I least liked is testing, because of the monotony, but I was warned in the interview that it would be so I can't complain to much about that.

Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard and don't be afraid to ask your bosses for more work if you really are there to gain experience.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Amazing opportunity to learn in a real world setting!

The project you work on matters to HP and is applicable to their everyday business. The people and the environment were very welcoming and relaxed.

I would have appreciated a little more guidance from my manager in the beginning of my internship.

From my experience, HP would be a wonderful company to work for. The people are great, from top-line managers to fellow employees. HP makes sure that every employee knows they matter.

Day-to-day work that could better be done by a permanent employee.

San Diego, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Flexible, engaging, nice people

Downers

Stressful, politilcal, old atmosphere

Advice to Potential Interns

Definitely a great place to have a first internship, with just the brand name of the company itself. Full-time is up to each person's individual preference.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Part of the HP Team

4.3 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Working directly on a real software project with experienced engineers. Intern and employee events. Flexible hours. Good pay. Was able to take time off when needed. A positive culture and very friendly people.

Downers

I was not assigned a specific mentor, although most HP interns are. Some disorganization within my team about what I should be doing and who should be helping me.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would recommend this company to anyone. I enjoyed my time here and it seems like a great place to begin a career in technology.

Sample Interview Questions

Have you ever worked on a team project and what was your experience (if positive, why was it positive? If negative, why and what did you do about it?)?

Would You Recommend

Yes

HP is a great company to intern for and they do their best to help you succeed.

4.4 of 5 stars

Sacramento, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Being able to take a project as my own and design/implement it as I saw best fit.

Downers

It can be difficult to find others who know about what you are working on.

Advice to Potential Interns

Communicate with your manager your desires instantly after being hired. If you want to work through the school year: tell them. If you want to work after your graduate: MAKE SURE THEY KNOW.

Would You Recommend

Yes
