Relaunch Pad is here to help everyone get a second chance in life.
So let’s get to how to get hired at Honeywell with a felony record!
Does Honeywell hire felons?
Official company policy for hiring felons
We contacted Honeywell, however the person we spoke to (from HR) didn’t have answers for us. Online accounts of what their policy could be were nonexistent too. However, the company does have special diversity programs that seem rather inclusive, so hopefully their hiring policy is fairly enlightened!
Has Honeywell hired felons in the past?
Unfortunately, we can’t find any evidence that they have. Most of what turns up in our research says they don’t hire felons, actually. However, there’s some hope that the age of your record and even the state you live in could help you here! More on that later.
Does Honeywell hire people with misdemeanors?
We’re not sure, but it’s possible. Our research didn’t turn anything up.
Is Honeywell on the Ban the Box list?
Ban the Box gets companies to remove the box on job applications that asks whether or not people have committed felonies. Honeywell is not part of Ban the Box, though we’re not surprised based on their reputation.
Another initiative that some companies are part of is the Fair Chance Business Pledge. Companies that are part of the Fair Chance Business Pledge also support felons getting back into the working world. Unfortunately we did not find any records that Honeywell is part of the Pledge, either.
Does Honeywell have special programs for hiring felons?
Some companies provide special programs for felons, but this is not the case at Honeywell.
What are the odds someone with a felony will get hired?
The odds of someone with a felony record getting a job here are uncertain at best. The vast majority of reviews online say they don’t, and they certainly look into your background. Your specific record may not be as big of a barrier as some of the others, though, so keep reading to figure out how your background will impact your chances of getting hired here.
What are some entry-level jobs?
Honeywell is known for their electronic components like smoke detectors and air humidifiers. As such, you can imagine they have some pretty technical jobs. However, there are some jobs that are more entry-level — which is what we’re after! We just want to get a foot in the door.
So, at Honeywell, you’d be best to apply to either office work such as an administrative position or an entry-level technician or repair job. Look closely at the job descriptions to get a good feel for what kind of jobs you’d like to do at Honeywell and proceed to the next section!
How to get hired at Honeywell with a felony
The easiest way to get hired at any company is to clearly show them why you’re the best fit for the job. This starts with a well-crafted resume and even a cover letter if possible. These two documents are your gateway to an interview, so you need to make sure you’re doing it right! How? Step one: Read our guide on building a resume with a record here. Next, get thinking about what skills you have and how you earned them. Make a list! This list will become your resume once you’ve reviewed our video.
Knowing about the company before you apply is a must. You can take your work experiences and spice them up with Honeywell’s favorite buzz words. Here is the official about us page so you can do your homework.
If you delivered your resume and got a positive answer from Honeywell, it’s time you learn more about the next step: The interview.
- Make sure you know what you’re talking about. Avoid stuttering or giving generic answers to the interviewer’s questions. They want to see that you are engaging in a real conversation and not just following a script.
- Prepare for the most commonly asked questions in interviews so you’re not taken by surprise by a tough question. You can check some possible interview questions here.
- You don’t have to dress to impress, but the way you dress matters. Ensure your clothes are clean and tidy, and that you are too. Make sure your nails are trim and clean and that your shoes aren’t dirty. Small details make a difference and show your attention to detail.
Does Honeywell do background checks?
Background checks are all-too-common, and often all-too-damning. Honeywell definitely does a background check and, from what we hear, it’s pretty much what stops you from getting a job here. Ouch. However, Honeywell seems to go back only 10 years max (there are conflicting reports on this) so keep that in mind.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
No matter what Honeywell’s policy is for length of time since conviction, these states below will only show the past seven years of your record:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
These states don’t show cases where you were found not guilty:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
These states are the toughest. They’ll show everything on your record, no matter how old or if the charges were dropped:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
Visiting the ratings website, Glassdoor, we found 7,500 reviews. They got 3.7 out of 5 stars. The main cons mentioned were the extremely fast-paced environment and many role changes. The pros mentioned that being at an international company is great and that the diverse work environment is a great career builder.
On top of that, this article says that Honeywell is one of the most admired companies in the world!
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Honeywell is pretty strict when it comes to your criminal history, as you’ve seen. Ideally, you’ll be applying at a time when your felony is too old to count against you or you happen to live in one of those states that won’t show Honeywell your record because it’s too old there. In any event, this is what we think will most stand in your way:
- Times you’ve been shown to be untrustworthy such as theft or fraud.
- Choices you made in anger that lead to assault or destruction charges.
- Trespassing charges that indicate a lack of respect for boundaries and privacy.
- Having hits on your driving record. Several jobs say spots on your driving record will prevent you from getting hired here.
Does Honeywell drug test?
At the time of this review, we could not find any official information to answer this question.
