Yes, HP does drug test. However, in recent years, HP has relaxed some of its policies regarding drug testing. In some cases, HP will require a pre-employment drug test. HP uses a five-panel urine drug test done by a third-party lab. The drug test looks for cannabis, opiates, PCP, cocaine, and amphetamines.
In recent years, as with many technology companies, their views regarding cannabis use are becoming less restrictive. HP has adopted a "don't ask, don't tell" stance on cannabis use, especially in states that have legalized cannabis use. In some cases, if you test positive, they ask you to retest in 30 days.
Employees are allowed to use tobacco or vaping products outside of the building in designated smoking areas. Because COVID-19 led to more and more employees working at home, HP has created a policy against using vaping products while on webcam for work-related calls.
HP may hire felons. They do not have any specific restrictions in place, so their decision to hire a candidate with a criminal record will largely depend on the nature of the crime. Felony charges that tend to be deal-breakers include cybercrimes, physical assault, or sexual assault.
HP hasn't taken the Fair Chance Business Pledge, a promise employers make to not discriminate against former felons in the hiring process. Nor is HP part of the Ban of Box movement which aims to remove questions about criminal records from job applications.
These initiatives seek to give former felons the opportunity to be considered for their work history, rather than their past mistakes. When large companies such as HP are not aligned with these groups, it may be a bad sign of their willingness to hire a felon.
You answer this question by focusing on the rich history of the company and their many products and services that have helped change the world. You can also focus on the success of the company and your own professional development.

The dress code at HP is casual. When it comes to HP's technical talent, they value comfort and productivity above all. For those working in client-facing positions or on the leadership team, the dress is business casual.
That's not to say HP doesn't have certain dress code restrictions. According to HP, men should avoid turning up to the office in T-shirts with no collars, faded or torn jeans, shorts, baseball caps and other headwear, sportswear, sandals, and other open shoes.
Women are advised not to wear short skirts, faded or torn jeans, low-cut dresses, sandals, crazy high heels, and too much jewelry.
The hiring process at HP can be a multifaceted and arduous endeavor, depending on the position that you're applying to. Specifically, if you are applying for a technical position at HP the company will require a series of technical assessments that are not for the faint of heart. From start to finish, the hiring process is between four to eight weeks, depending upon the position.
While they still require multiple interviews for non-technical positions, like those in HR or marketing, they do not have the additional technical assessments and technical interviews that a technical role has.
Someone applying for a non-technical role can expect three to four onsite interviews. While some applying for a technical role, such as software developer or web developer, can expect three interviews focused only on their technical skills.
To begin, you'll want to go to HP's career portal and submit an application form including a resume and cover letter. Once you submit everything for the application you will receive a confirmation email. In one to two weeks, if qualified, you will be contacted by an HP recruiter.
A candidate for a technical role such as a software developer includes an initial phone screening from a recruit, a written round of testing, up to three technical tests and interviews, and further interviews with both the prospective manager and HR.
The written round consists of three major sections: a general aptitude test, a verbal ability test, and a technical test. The general aptitude test features assessments for mathematical skills while the verbal ability test measures logical reasoning abilities.
The technical Interview rounds are tailored to the position and involve solving problems, real-world scenarios, and puzzles. Someone applying to an entry-level software developer position, for example, can expect their technical interviews to include problems and mock scenarios.
An example of HP technical interview questions include:
Where do you see five years down the lane?
Why have you applied for a role at HP?
Who are HP's main competitors?
What are HP's objectives for the coming year?
Do you know about the CEO of our company?
If you're applying for a management position at HP anticipate having a panel/group assessment that evaluates your problem-solving skills, and leadership cores and values.
A week after your last face-to-face interview, the recruitment team will inform you about how you performed on the assessments and interviews, and whether or not you can proceed in the hiring process to the onboarding stage.
