Hiring Veterans can bring value to your company


Being serious in our mission to get your products to their destination, we conscientiously dedicate our services to you, our customers. Grimes Companies president, Neil Porter, a US Army Veteran, incorporated his committed work ethic into the company many years ago. Influenced strongly from his days in the US Army, we insist on quality work. Knowing professionalism and quality means a lot to our customers, too, we believe in the values veterans bring to a company. That’s why we like hiring military veterans.

How Do Veterans Assure Quality Work?

Veterans are loyal workers…
Recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data concludes that business owners incur a little less than $30/hour for sustaining an employee. Due to this substantial investment, hiring managers seek loyal employees willing to invest themselves in a company using quality work ideals, motivation and dedication. Military veterans fit this work ethic.

Vets understand how loyalty adds to team proficiency and builds work environment trust. While serving their country, they discipline themselves to be loyal to their sister and brother soldiers. At times, their lives may depend on the loyalty and support of each other. As veterans working in civilian businesses, they apply their learned military training mindset, being quite comfortable as team players.

Veterans are dependable workers…
Being conditioned to consistently adhere to a specified and goal-oriented schedule, veterans typically perform well at our type of work. Hiring professionals can feel challenged being able to accurately judge which candidates will provide motivated and reliable productivity. Not so for disciplined former military personnel. These highly trained men and women naturally provide quality work.

A military-trained worker communicates well…
Military personnel understand workplace diversity. When employees are willing to work with everybody, work is more productive.

The Grimes Companies are proud to have employed veterans and currently has more than 10 veterans in it's workforce, including owner and founder, Tommy Grimes.
