ABC Supply Co. Inc. Expands Military Recruitment Efforts

In honor of National Military Appreciation Month, ABC Supply is announcing expanded veteran recruitment efforts to help make the transition to civilian life easier for those who have served. The exterior building products distributor has hired over 800 military veterans since 2017 and is working with organizations such as RecruitMilitary and Military.com to employ more veterans in the future.

“American Pride is one of our Core Values, and we bring that to life by inviting veterans to join the ABC Supply family,” said Mike Jost, ABC Supply chief operating officer. “When their service is done, they deserve the chance to achieve the American dream that they helped protect. We’re doing our part to give them that opportunity.”

The essential skills veterans learn while serving—including leadership, problem solving, attention to detail and communication—are a great fit for the projects that ABC Supply associates execute on a daily basis. For veterans interested in driver positions, they may be eligible for the Military Skills Test Waiver that allows them to bypass the skills-testing portion of a commercial driver’s license. 

Veterans can find a welcoming home at ABC Supply, as the company hired nearly 400 veterans last year and has veterans in leading roles throughout the company.

“When I got out of the military, I knew I was losing the camaraderie I had with the soldiers I worked with,” said Todd David, ABC Supply managing partner and Army veteran. “I found that at ABC Supply the camaraderie we have is very similar, and it’s a company that values the talents you have.”

It’s often difficult for veterans to find their fit with a company after their service ends, which is why ABC Supply has taken the “veteran hiring pledge” with Military.com and been active at RecruitMilitary career fairs. These events allow veterans to get one-on-one professional advice from ABC Supply associates and discuss which roles are the best fit for their unique skillsets.
