NS Recognized as Military Friendly Employer

Norfolk Southern has also been recognized as a military friendly employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.

In a news release, NS said it was the 10th time that it has made the list, which features companies with a “proven record of hiring and supporting veterans in the workplace.”

NS logo 2NS said that 3,800 of its employees, or 14 percent, are veterans, including members of the National Guard and military reserves.

“Military veterans are thriving at our company in all areas of operations and management,” said NS CEO Jim Squires, an Army veteran. “With their leadership skills and knowledge, veterans bring a strong work ethic and a commitment to safety and service that make us a better railroad, which in turn helps America prosper.”

Victory Media’s military friendly list rates companies’ performance across six categories: recruiting and sourcing; hiring and onboarding; career opportunity and advancement; culture and commitment; military support and retention; and military employee policies and compliance.
