Texas Veterans Commission Names Service King Large Employer of the Year

Hundreds of U.S. military veterans have joined Service King as part of the company’s Mission 2 Hire initiative.

The Texas Veterans Commission recently recognized Service King Collision Repair Centers and its ongoing Mission 2 Hire campaign, naming the organization the Large Employer of the Year.

The announcement came as part of the 19th annual Veterans Summit at the DoubleTree Hilton in Austin.

Service King has more than 300 collision repair centers across the United States. Hundreds of U.S. military veterans have joined Service King as part of the company’s Mission 2 Hire initiative.

“The entire Service King family is united in our pledge to actively serve and support military veterans and spouses across the U.S.,” said Jeff McFadden, Service King president. “We’re humbled and proud to have welcomed hundreds of veterans to numerous positions at Service King since the launch of Mission 2 Hire. Service King will continue to invest in this program and look for ways to give back to those who have bravely defended our freedoms and liberties.”

Service King’s Mission 2 Hire launched in May 2015 and has directly resulted in hundreds of U.S. Armed Forces veterans and spouses joining the organization in less than two years. In 2016 alone, Service King actively recruited and hired more than 100 veterans and spouses, putting the campaign ahead of its goal to hire 500 in five years.

In addition to recruiting events, Service King has consistently promoted Mission 2 Hire through diverse marketing materials including high-profile billboard campaigns and even a 30-second radio spot during Super Bowl 50 in 2016. The radio spot went on to win Westwood One’s Super Bowl Sound Awards for creative excellence.

Shortly after its launch in 2015, Service King officially joined the Military Spouse Employment Partnership Program – a U.S. Department of Defense-backed partnership among leading businesses to actively connect military spouses with career opportunities at hundreds of organizations.

Mission 2 Hire officially surpassed the 200-hire milestone in January, and Service King continues to actively promote the program across the country.

Military veterans and spouses looking to join the Service King team through Mission 2 Hire are encouraged to visit www.Mission2Hire.careers. The specially built portal provides a detailed overview of available positions at Service King and features a “skills matcher” to pair veterans with careers that fit their skillset.
