Service King Collision Repair Centers announced that it has successfully recruited and hired more than 100 military veterans and family members in less than 12 months through the Mission 2 Hire campaign.
Service King’s Mission 2 Hire initiative officially launched in May 2015 with the goal of recruiting and hiring more than 500 military veterans and spouses in five years. With today’s milestone, the ongoing effort is officially on pace to surpass its original pledge.
“The Service King family is united in our effort to create and provide career opportunities for our heroes who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces,” said Chris Abraham, Service King CEO. “Today is a very proud moment for our Mission 2 Hire initiative. Military veterans and their family members, by nature, possess the very skill sets and core values we aim to harvest at Service King. We’re proud to open our doors and actively promote career opportunities to our heroes as the Service King family of repair centers continues to grow across the U.S.”
All military veterans and spouses interested in career opportunities at Service King can visit the campaign’s online home at Mission2Hire.careers. The website aims to educate users on available positions at Service King and matches specific military skill sets with complementary positions at Service King.
The Mission 2 Hire initiative has resulted in talent acquisition across varying levels of the Service King organization, including body technicians, service advisors, managers and administrative positions at offices across the country. In February, Service King propelled the Mission 2 Hire initiative into the national spotlight by producing a 30-second radio spot during Westwood One’s coverage of Super Bowl 50, which garnered the Super Bowl Sound Award for creative excellence.
