The onboarding process

Please make the onboarding and background check procedures fast.

HP internship is a both an enriching and degrading experience.
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


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

Much Wanted Experience
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

In this place I got to developing a lot of abilities that I don't know who I enable
Other (International) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

It is flexible for the student, the place to work is good, there are a lot of programs that makes employees take care of your healthy, finances and also be engaged with HP to grow up.


Downers

It would be good if have more trainings for the interns specifically, I just participate of one and it was so good for the professional life at HP


Advice to Potential Interns

I think you would be willing, always you are free, ask you manager if he/she needs more help. Be interesting in know something new


Sample Interview Questions

Not what you thought Release Engineering was.
Worcester, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working directly with engineers as just another (albeit, entry-level) engineer.


Downers

Projects sometimes were initially broadly given such that it was difficult to get started.


Advice to Potential Interns

HP honestly doesn't really pay well compared to other companies of similar size and prestige. The reason to work there is the environment.


Sample Interview Questions

HP doesn't grill its interns. They simply ask you for your education, experience, and skillset. They take you at your word for internships mostly.


Advice to Management

More compensation, other big companies pay more than $10 more per hr.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Amazing opportunity to learn in a real world setting!
San Diego, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.


Downers

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


Advice to Potential Interns

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Came in with an open mind, came out with a bigger mind
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyones positive attitude around the office and willingness to help eachother


Downers

Working in what feels like an old/antiquated building


Advice to Potential Interns

Ask a lot of questions, never sit there wondering what you should or need to do. Sitting on one problem and not asking for help is not the way to go.


Sample Interview Questions

"Tell me about inheritance in an object oriented language" , "Tell me about a time when you had to make a hard decision that did not please everyone that it affected"


Advice to Management

Make getting 3par and HP accounts set up a lot easier, maybe get rid of cubicles?


Would You Recommend

Yes

A great experience to be a part of the cutting edge of cloud software in OpenStack.
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was allowed to develop software which will be deployed and used in a production environment in the real world.


Downers

Much of what I have learned in my college career hasn't been directly applicable to my daily tasks. The scale of software in production is many times larger than any program I've written in college so far. It seems that the ability to perform successfully relies on your knowledge of the codebase, rather than your skill in developing software, which makes learning the codebase very important.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would recommend an HP internship to any other student who is currently evaluating it, especially if it is within the HP Cloud organization.


Sample Interview Questions

Do you know what the Cloud is?


Would You Recommend

Yes

Being able to discuss things with my Mentor and receiving that sort of guidance.


Downers

Advice to Potential Interns

Helpful coworkers and adaptive experience

Yes
