United Rentals Wants US Veterans

Posted by on January 25, 2013 in Jobs For Veterans

United Rentals contacted HirePatriots today. They want our help to fill their nationwide positions with as many US veterans as possible. – This is a very patriotic   company. In many ways they set the standard for veteran hiring.  United Rentals actually respects military training and experience. They sincerely value what veterans bring to their company.

Right now, they are particularly looking for veterans with ‘mechanical experience.’ – I asked, “What kind?”  They said “Operators (truck and tractor drivers), big equipment and truck mechanics, hydraulics, etc.” – I asked for details and here are the specs for two positions they need to fill right away:

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. We also hold welcome home parties, military marriage retreats, job fairs and create military family gardens.
