Melton Truck Lines announced today that it has earned the 2018 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media. First published in 2003, Military Friendly® Employers is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.
Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using three data sources in the scoring methodology: publicly available data from federal agencies; personal opinion data from veteran employees; and proprietary Military Friendly® survey data from participating organizations. More than 200 companies participated in the Military Friendly® Employers portion of the
2018 Military Friendly® Companies survey.
Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.
Melton is committed to hiring military talent, knowing first-hand that recruiting veterans and military spouses is not only the “right thing to do,” but the right thing for business.
“We are proud to provide such exceptional and suitable career opportunities for our nation’s veterans and active military members. The trucking industry’s linkage to military values provides a seamless transition to the flatbed career paths we offer. As we grow, Melton remains committed to hiring outstanding military members and is proud to continuously increase our military hiring each year.” said Melton’s Chairman & CEO, Bob Peterson.
“Companies that have earned this designation have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful jobs for transitioning service members, veterans and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer at Victory Media. “Our Military Friendly® Employers have moved beyond answering ‘why hire military?’ They are truly aligning their jobs and recruiting efforts with Military Friendly® Schools to translate military competencies into civilian careers.”
Melton will be showcased along with other 2018 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs ® magazine, the January 2018 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com .
