Paramus, New Jersey (November 10, 2014)- Coach USA is pleased to announce a new program, “Coach USA Puts Veterans To Work Program” for all of our 25 companies nationwide. The program is specifically designed to reach out to veteran groups and active military to help Coach USA find candidates who may fit our open positions. Coach USA is currently seeking drivers, mechanics and other staff across our family of companies.
“Coach USA is looking to hire our military heroes as they return from protecting our country, as well as active military reserve units. The valuable skills that they have developed while overseas would greatly benefit our company,” said Dale Moser, Coach USA CEO.
Coach USA has established a direct phone number for our veterans and active military only to call and speak directly with a human resource representative who can assist them in applying for an open position with Coach USA. If the applicant is applying for an open driver position, the candidate must fill out the application in person, pass a background check, take an assessment test, pass a DOT physical and drug screen and pass driving school.
Moser continued, “Coach USA is willing to work with every active military personal or veteran interested in one of our openings who is qualified for the position. We feel that it is our turn to give back to them as they have honorably served our country.”
Coach USA offers benefits including medical, dental and vision, a 401K plan after a year of service and overtime pay when available. There are multiple benefits that Coach USA offers active military and veterans. A qualified applicant with a CDL permit who has served in the military will take priority over a qualified general applicant with a CDL permit. Coach USA will offer paid training for military applicants without previous experience as a commercial bus driver. Also Coach USA has reserved part time positions when available, so that active military personnel can work around their military and civilian time schedule.
