HR is unorganized on the dr-g test and physical part, had to do it four different times, first time the medical facility lost all of my paperwork, the second time a different facility didn’t get enough hair for a hair follicle test, the third time, the medical facility they sent me to advised me that they didn’t do hair follicle testing, (keep in mind all of these places are at least 50 miles from my home and wasting my own fuel) after that experience I emailed HR and the plant supervisor to let them know that I turned down the offered job. I then got bribed by HR with a $1000 sign on bonus to stay on track with the hiring process (stupid mistake), the fourth time was a charm and finally got cleared to go to work in the assigned plant. Then it was a complete s#!?show my first (non full) day with unorganization and confusion, I said the heck with it, I went back to my old job. Perhaps a fluke? Or is it that bad throughout the company? I know Phillips is a long lived, well established company. What in the world happened? To top it off, seems like everyone was kinfolk to each other or best friends (aka good ol’ boy network). I just went with my gut instinct and jumped ship sadly after not even putting in a full first day.

HR are now critical thinkers (insert eyeroll here) they don’t perform actual work.
You did the right thing. That company is a complete mess and I doubt it gets better anytime soon. It isn’t just HR & BT that are a mess (although HR is horrible), it’s the mentality of the entire company. They aren’t focused on why they are in business in the first place. Their mission is no longer defined (or reinforced regularly) from the top.
It takes just a quick look at the stock market to see that we are the under performers of the industry and the analysts can see that as well.
Oh man, HR is worse than useless these days. They provide no help with hiring and if you have a question, the answer is always "check HR connections"
P66 HR as a whole was a living, breathing disaster even before BT. Now it’s even worse. Especially the Learning & Development branch of HR.
