Since Metro’s Veterans Hiring Initiative started in 2012, Metro has hired 166 veterans and is engaged in several outreach efforts in order to encourage military veterans and their spouses to apply for jobs at Metro. The transportation industry has opportunities in many varied career paths from bus and rail operator, mechanical and technical positions to typical office environment-type jobs such as IT, Accounting/Finance, contract management, facilities management and many others.
Metro will be participating in the following job fairs for veterans. If you are a veteran, active duty military member, guard/reserve member or military spouse, drop by our table and say hi! Please check the linked sites for more information.
