PACCAR Parts is a proud participant of Hiring Our Heroes, a program hosted by the Chamber of Commerce Foundation to help veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses find meaningful employment.
PACCAR Parts, as a Corporate Fellowship employer, will host two Hiring Our Heroes fellows in the first quarter. The fellowship program organizes cohorts of up to 40 active duty service members, including veterans and military spouses. Fellows are carefully matched with participating companies and undergo a 12-week fellowship program with on-the-job training, networking events and weekly educational sessions.
Since 2017, PACCAR Parts has hired 13 Hiring Our Heroes participants into full-time positions. “The Corporate Fellowship provided me with an invaluable opportunity to get real work experience with a great company. PACCAR Parts takes the time to create a plan for the fellows they host. Transitioning from military to civilian life is extremely challenging, but PACCAR Parts allowed me to prove myself, and I am forever grateful,” said Rob Thomas, PACCAR Parts customer support supervisor.
“PACCAR Parts truly understands our mission of providing a Fellowship that leads to a new career with the company. Throughout PACCAR’s involvement with the Corporate Fellowship Program Northwest, the company has hosted, hired and retained fellows at an incredible rate, making them a Top 3 “Veteran Ready” employer out of all of our fellowship host companies here in the CFP Northwest since inception in 2015,” said Rob Comer, Senior Fellowship Program Manager, Hiring Our Heroes.
“We appreciate the service of our military veterans and are very excited to support them in the next phase of their careers,” said David Danforth, PACCAR Parts general manager and PACCAR vice president.
