Two years ago, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. announced it made a commitment to hire 1,000 United States military veterans, and today the company has surpassed its three-year goal more than a year early, and has pledged to hire an additional 1,000 veterans.
“The response to Goodyear’s military hiring initiative, both from veterans and the public, has been incredible,” said Gary VanderLind, vice president of human resources, Goodyear North America.
“The make-up of our workforce is changing rapidly and we’re seeking high quality talent that will help us meet the evolving needs of our customers and our company,” VanderLind said. “We’ve found that veterans, guardsmen and reservists often demonstrate many of the skills we value: proven leadership, courageous decision making, effective problem solving and the technical skills that translate well to working in the tire industry.”
Goodyear says it currently has a wide variety of career opportunities across many areas of its business for which veterans would be ideally suited, including engineers, front-line managers, service technicians, and corporate roles in areas such as supply chain, procurement, finance, and human resources.
Goodyear says its relationship with the military dates back to World War I, when the company produced truck tires and airships for the war effort. Today, Goodyear is the largest producer of military tires in the United States.
