ATLANTA – March 11, 2015 – Last week, CivilianJobs.com announced the finalists for the Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military. U.S. Security Associates (USA), in its first year to submit an application for the award, has been named to the prestigious list of 2015 finalists. As one of America's fastest growing security companies and founded by former U.S. Navy officer Chuck Schneider, USA is a veteran success story in itself.
In 2012, USA launched a highly-targeted military hiring campaign, "Recruiting America's Brave," with a pledge to support the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hiring 100,000 veterans by the year 2020. Since the launch of the campaign, USA has hired a record number of men and women from military backgrounds.
As part of this campaign, USA actively partners with a number of organizations and programs, including Hiring Our Heroes, Hero2Hired, Warriors to Work, Hire Heroes USA, Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces, and others, USA sponsors and attends military career fairs and hiring events including yearly RecruitMilitary job fairs.
Angela Myers, USA’s Regional Recruitment Manager, said, "These job fairs give us great exposure to highly qualified and motivated military veterans. I regularly meet candidates at these events, and I am able to hire a good percentage that subsequently come to my office to interview."
USA’s military recruiting efforts have also led to the company being named among the 2014 Best of the Best Top Veteran-Friendly Companies by U.S. Veterans, being named one of the Top 50 Military Friendly Spouse Employers® by G.I. Jobs, and to ranking on the G.I. Jobs list of Military Friendly Employers® for the past three consecutive years.
Burt Hillman, USA Assistant District Manager, said about his USA experience, “I am a retired E-9 from the United States Air Force. After 26+ years of service, I was hired by U.S. Security Associates in November 2011 and have not looked back. Joining this company has helped me see that I can be as successful in the civilian world as I was in the military.”
