An excellent opportunity to learn many things.
Sao Paulo | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to learn in practice what you are studying at the university, and meet a lot of people.


Downers

I think the internship in HP, is being very important to me, and I can not complain about nothing, since the beginning I was very well received by my workmates, mainly by my manager, that helped me a lot, in all activities. The only thing that I can highlight in this question is: The HP it's a big company, there is a lot of areas, when I started work here, I felt a little bit lost, because HP have a lot of information. So I think that HP can improve this situation, but the rest are perfect.


Advice to Potential Interns

The candidate can be sure, that HP is a great company to do your internship, here you can learn too much, and the HP is open to invest in your potential, the company trust in your potential.

My work here matters.
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Great environment, fun and not boring work, great pay, sharp people to work around, endless resources for continued development


Downers

lack of more structured training


Advice to Potential Interns

To be professional in all that you do at work. I think some interns feel that only some work needs to be done as professional as possible when it all should be done this way.


Advice to Management

The only thing I think could be improved would be a more structured form of training.


Would You Recommend

Yes

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes
