HP Military Veterans: Welcome to HP!
We’re honored to serve
Brittney Burant, Metrology Engineer – Corvallis, Oregon
HP is unlike most places I’ve worked, in that my schedule is flexible, and there’s an innate sense of trust in my abilities.
While I sometimes miss the rigidity that the military life offered me, I feel that HP allows me to prioritize my projects in a way that suits my work style, and I can schedule my day in a way that promotes balance.
HP’s relaxed culture has me looking forward to coming to work, and I feel like I can put my focus into my projects and not worry about the outside pressures I faced in other industries.
Despite not having the structure of other work environments, I still feel like everyone is part of the same team here, and I felt so welcomed when I first joined.
William T. Humphrey, Engineering Modeling and Analysis Group, Structural Analyst – Corvallis, Oregon
I appreciate HP’s focus on development and a growth mindset. The skills I gained in the US Air Force are valued and easily transferable to the work I do.
I’ve developed new skills, leveraging HP’s educational assistance program, which allowed me to grow my career and contribute at a higher level.
I am empowered to make a difference every day here. I work with leading-edge technology and collaborate with great people to innovate and build products that make a difference for our customers.
Beth Woloszyn-Redman, Market Research Analyst – San Diego, California
From the interview process to my current role, I know I am valued and part of a team. HP recognized that my military experience provided me with skills and knowledge easily transferable to the corporate world—and they appreciated that my background gave me a unique perspective.
HP is committed to hiring military veterans, connecting our military-instilled values with its vision of meaningful innovation, and celebrates a workforce truly representative of the communities we serve.
Jonald Gradwohl, 3D Print Lab Manager – Corvallis, Oregon
In my 24 years at HP, I’ve had the opportunities to work in many roles and change careers without having to start over.
I get to find projects that I am passionate about and contribute in my own way. HP’s commitment to community also enables me to balance my work with my community service.
Jascha Patton, Senior IT Project Manager – Houston, Texas
Since joining HP I have learned that this is an organization that demands success and has built a culture that encourages helping and asking for help regardless of your position.
While the environment at HP is very different from the military in many ways, the teamwork and fast pace make this a really fun place to work.
In addition, I have been very impressed by the overall level of talent of my fellow HP teammates and this has become an unexpected motivation; we don’t want to let each other down, which challenges us to keep up.
HP has invested in my success through training and mentoring but there are also organizations such as VERN and Yammer groups to help Vets integrate.
Since its launch last year, HP’s Reinvent Mindsets campaign has promoted diversity and inclusion in hiring and in the workforce with messages aimed at women, African-Americans, Latinos and members of the LGBT community. The latest spot in the series, Ask Me About, reaches out to former members of the military, and debuted at the inaugural Silicon Valley Veterans Summit in San Jose, California.
