HID Global Hosts Habitat for Humanity Building Day

HID Global continued its mission of being a good corporate citizen by sponsoring an Austin Habitat for Humanity building day. HID Global’s 60 volunteers from its Corporate Office in Austin, Texas spent the day building the interior and exterior wall panels for an Austin Habitat home.

This building day gave HID employees the opportunity to work side by side to build panel walls that will be the fundamental structure of a future home.  It’s another way that HID Global is creating a secure place.  

HID already secures places for thousands of customers through trusted identity solutions every day, and now they are helping a local charity create a secure place for a family that has been struggling.  As a well-respected, charitable organization, Austin Habitat for Humanity does it by building new houses for people who are caught up in a cycle of poverty.  

“HID Global is proud to support the volunteerism and community outreach projects of its employees,” said Michele DeWitt, Senior Vice President, Human Resources with HID Global. “We were delighted to help Austin Habitat for Humanity not only build this safe home for a deserving family, but continuing to help them in their mission of  building a strong, stable and self-reliant community.”

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HID (Austin, TX) in February 2017.


    Phone screens followed up by on site interviews. This was the third or fourth time I've interviewed with this company in this location. It is now clear to me that they don't have a firm grasp on the requirements of the organization. They seem to have a sort of "whimsical" approach to staffing.
