UPS Announces Plans to Hire 50,000 Veterans

Visit brought big news for U.S. veterans

UPS has announced plans to hire 50,000 veterans by the end of 2018. The total doubles the company’s hiring pledge made last year. UPS hired 13,000 veterans in 2013.

“In 2013, UPS hired 13,000 veterans, an increase of more than 30 percent from the prior year,” says UPS Veterans Affairs Manager Pat O’Leary. “We’re pleased to announce the new commitment. Hiring skilled, sharp veterans at UPS is not only the right thing to do, but it’s the smart thing to do because of the value they can bring to our workforce.”

Last year’s hiring announcement was made last year as part of the Obama Administration’s Joining Forces initiative. It included a pledge of employee volunteer time with veterans service organizations. This year, UPS increased its pledge to 50,000 hours to help these organizations. The expanded pledge was announced at an aviation industry career forum at Fort Campbell, KY, attended by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden.

During the event, Mrs. Obama told a group of veterans that they have the skills and experience companies are looking for. Based on what they’ve seen and dealt with as service members, she added, “I know you can handle the pressure of a job interview at Xerox or UPS.”

Military veterans have filled key positions at UPS over the years. These positions include those in operations, management, logistics, and others.

UPS currently employs nearly 24,000 veterans. This represents 7.5 percent of UPS’s U.S. workforce.
