Our Commitment to Recruiting Veterans

We partner with various military organizations to connect military veterans and active service members with opportunities at Railworks.

  • We actively participate in recruitment events on military bases and partner with veteran recruitment agencies at the state level that focus on hiring military service members, veterans, and military families.
  • We partner with Hiring our Heroes, a US Chambers of Commerce Foundation program. Hiring our Heroes connects service members, military spouses and veterans with job opportunities as they're transitioning to the civilian workforce.

Management's Commitment to Hiring Our Heroes

"L.K. Comstock National Transit are proud supporters of the Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) program. The program has been a great resource for our company to obtain quality team members while helping veterans transition from the military to the private sector. We have had great successes with hiring veterans from HOH who have become model employees that possess a great work ethic and a strong willingness to learn. The fellowship provided by the HOH program provides both the employer and the veteran a great opportunity to familiarize themselves with each other and allows the veterans to make an informed decision about the next stage of their lives. Our company looks forward to the continued support of the program and hiring more veterans for different roles in our company."

Bill Heavin, President LKCNT

"We could not be happier with the Veterans we have met and had the opportunity to make a part of our family. We have had the privilege of hiring 4 participants. With the current labor market being stressed, and even more challenged to find employees that have the skills needed to become a future leader, the program transitions great people into great employees.

We can feel out the employee's skill set and adjust the opportunity to maximize their strengths. Transitioning from the military to a civilian role is no easy process, however the years of training and instruction provided through the government allows the employee to manage the change and adjust quickly. The program takes the basic challenges out of the equation and provides a well-rounded, energetic, and competent employee that can meet the market demands."

Dave Luond, General Manager Track Systems West
