The fact that I could safely say that "I get to go to work today" instead of "I have to go to work".

Downers

I only got to wear a suit a few times.

Advice to Potential Interns

HP is a pretty laid back work environment. Help is available if you need it. You become part of the family on day one.

Sample Interview Questions

- Different engineering and social scenarios. How would you deal with the problem?

- What projects have you done outside of school? What problems did you encounter and how did you get past them?

Boise, ID | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I was able to meet some great people through networking events and office chatting. I learned a lot about what it is like to work for an industry as opposed to acedemia. These past three months further strengthened my career choice. I truly do not feel like I worked even though I accomplished quite a bit. I also learned that working slowly but consistently is much more effective.

Downers

I had difficulty getting housing as many of the options given to me were unavailable for only 3 months. I ended up coming to the internship without housing for the first few days. I also had to get 3 offer letters because the first 2 were blank.

Advice to Potential Interns

You will not regret a decision to join HP for your job. There is an element of freedom here and you are basically expected to do work. Coming a little late and working at different times is ok here. As an intern, I feel as though I learned many life skills in the past 3 months.

Sample Interview Questions

What would you do if you had data that needed to be secure and readily accessible?



Describe the basic elements of programming: Pointers, Data Types, recursion, etc.



Describe the basic ideals of programming: Coupling, Multithreading, synchronous vs asynchronous, etc



What have you done in computer science? Projects? Assignments? Classes?

Advice to Management

Since there was basically nothing that I disliked about my internship it is difficult to find things to improve. I do wish that it was made clear to me that there is a technical career path. I initially believed that to move up, you must go to management. As someone who likes doing technical things, this news was mindblowing.

I love that I can walk up to anyone, literally anyone, and they'll be very willing to help me to whatever I need. I am allowed to create my own rules and not hold anything back. I am able to participate at a global level. I am trusted by my peers and my managers to do an exceptional job.

Downers

It is pretty disorganized. There aren't any clear goals, which is a pro and a con because you can make it your own but at the same time it is hard to really understand expectations.

Advice to Potential Interns

It really is what you make of it, it can be the best thing ever or a really rough ride. make it what you will, but do everything well.

Would You Recommend

Awesome Hardware Research and Development Internship at HP

Boise, ID | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

There was never a dull moment, tons of interdisciplinary projects, very diverse skillsets working together

Downers

There was not a single bad aspect of the internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

You need to have a firm grasp of your technical skills, but your interpersonal skills are just as important. Communication is key when working with teams on critical projects.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time you were in a leadership position and give me an example of a specific problem you encountered.



How do you deal with conflict?

Advice to Management

My management experiences thus far have been ideal.

Would You Recommend

Uppers

The opportunity to put to practical use what I've learned at university, as well as the many intern activities.

Downers

The on-boarding process, especially with regards to getting in the Payroll system, was painful.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be sure to take immediate advantage of every offered benefit, such as health care, employee purchase program, R&D instructional/informational seminars, and free large-scale printing.

Sample Interview Questions

What was my experience with databases?

Would I be willing to work on projects somewhat but less related to my field of study (computer science)?

Advice to Management

HP really needs on-site Human Resources and Payroll representatives, in the same way that they have on-site IT personnel.

Would You Recommend

Yes

very fun and challenging project
