Penske Named a Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer for a 5th Year

For the fifth consecutive year Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics have earned placement on the Victory Media 2016 Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer and Military Spouse-Friendly Employer list. Victory is the publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.

Companies received consideration for this list via a data-driven survey of thousands of companies with resulting survey data independently tested by Ernst & Young, based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.

Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

“Penske proudly hires and employs veterans and active National Guard and Reserve members throughout our truck leasing and logistics businesses,” said Jennifer Sockel, Penske’s senior vice president of human resources. “We sincerely appreciate their service and dedication to our country. The values, work ethic and skills veterans and active military members bring to our workplace are truly valued within our organization.”

About 13 percent of Penske’s annual new hires are veterans. Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics offer a wide range of career opportunities including: truck fleet maintenance technicians, truck drivers, fleet maintenance supervisors, operations management roles, as well as logistics and supply chain operations roles and many others.
