Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Opportunity to work and explore an independent project

Downers

The onboarding process

Advice to Potential Interns

I would happily encourage any one to take up the internship with HP. Expect to work on individual projects. Be confident on your skills

Sample Interview Questions

1. Explain about the observer pattern. ( the question asked was not straight. He provided me with a scenario which basically deals with subscriptions)

Advice to Management

Please make the onboarding and background check procedures fast.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Taking the role of a customer and providing demonstrations of my experience

4.4 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

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?

Advice to Management

More mentoring for the interns

Not what you thought Release Engineering was.

4.3 of 5 stars

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

HP internship is a both an enriching and degrading experience.

4.4 of 5 stars

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

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

The Internship That Puts YOU Ahead of Your Peers

4.4 of 5 stars

Denver, CO | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

There was a variety of projects with different requirements. I was able to work with many teams and learn from different people. My focus was on program specific work instead of busy work.

Downers

There is a high pressure to perform. There are few women in the division

Advice to Potential Interns

Fort Collins is a great site for interns. They do a lot to enhance the internship experience.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great opportunities for beginning engineering students.

4.3 of 5 stars

Boise, ID | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Working with a wide variety of engineers. People with a year and a half all the way up to 35 years in the printer business,

Downers

Working on a project that an engineer was also working on would have been cool. The projects I did were all driven by me with help from mentors when I needed it.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be ready to learn a lot of new stuff. Of all the skills and knowledge I used this summer about 15% was stuff I learned in school, the other 85% was learned on the job.

Sample Interview Questions

They asked a lot of basic Circuits I and II class type stuff. How does the reactance of a capacitor change with frequency, what is ohms law, how do you bias an LED, etc. Also asked plenty of non technical questions, they want to make sure you're a good fit for the team in addition to having a base level of technical knowledge.

Would You Recommend

Yes

A taste of the SoCal life

4.3 of 5 stars

San Diego, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Great manager, great company culture, location, the people

Downers

Lack of intern events/gatherings

Advice to Potential Interns

I can't vouch for the whole organization, only the San Diego location, but it has been by far the absolute best place to work.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about your releveant classes/coursework

Tell me about previous internship expierence

Advice to Management

Help better with relocation for people from out of state

Would You Recommend

Yes

The True Learning Experiance

4.3 of 5 stars

Boise, ID | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I learned a lot about Programming and Independent work flows

Downers

My team had an issue with time allocation for an Intern.

Advice to Potential Interns

Enjoy the Internship its not only for you to sell yourself to the company but for the company and the area to sell themselves to you.

Advice to Management

I would just look at how much time people have to give to the intern, along with use smaller project with quite a few of them instead of just one

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great opportunity for learning and meaningful interactions with other engineers

4.4 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Flexibility, Teamwork, Intern Events

Downers

Work may sometimes seem monotonous - more variety would be preferred

Advice to Potential Interns

If you're looking for an engineering employer that is flexible and has a good work atmosphere (helpful coworkers) but high pay is not your priority then HP is a perfect fit for you.

Sample Interview Questions

How would you go about estimating the number of hairdressers in a particular city?
