Service King Announces Military Veterans Hiring Initiative
May 7, 2015—On Wednesday, Service King announced a hiring initiative called Mission 2 Hire, a pledge by Service King to hire at least 500 U.S. Armed Forces Veterans, spouses or active duty personnel in the next five years.
This number will equal about 10 percent of Service King’s current staff.
As part of the initiative, Service King is partnering with Hiring Our Heros and USAA, as well as other veteran assistance programs.
“By nature, military personnel posses some of the most valuable skillsets that we look for in our hiring process.U.S. Armed Forces veterans and their family members have bravely served our country and fought for our freedom. Now, it’s our turn to serve them as they make the difficult transition to civilian life. We’re honored and deeply humbled to provide rewarding career opportunities at Service King for these heroes through our Mission 2 Hire initiative,” said Service King CEO Chris Abraham.
Service King has launched a website, mission2hire.careers, which is tailored to military veterans and their families. The site aims to match existing skillsets with careers in the collision repair industry.
