Commitment to Veterans
“We recognize that military veterans are trained in many of the managerial and service oriented skills that are perfect for a career at Suburban Propane.
As a result, we have a growing effort to recruit and hire military personnel through our Heroes Hired program.” – Michael Stivala, President & CEO
From Military Life to Suburban Life
We partnered with Lifetime Television Network’s Military Makeover series to produce a segment called “Military Makeover-Operation Career” highlighting veterans who have transitioned from military life to the workplace. We are very proud of our veteran employees featured in this segment and who did an outstanding job representing Team Suburban Propane.
Heroes Hired Here
Through Suburban Propane’s, “Heroes Hired Here” program, military veterans who accept a non-seasonal full-time position can take advantage of the following:
- Payment of CDL and Endorsement Fees: Suburban Propane will reimburse you (military veterans and spouses including widows and widowers of military veterans, active duty military personnel and reservists) for the fee associated with issuing a new CDL including the necessary endorsements and background check.
- Reservist Training Compensation: Suburban Propane will provide you with up to 3 weeks of standard hours of full base pay annually to participate in Reservist training activities for any branch of the military.
- Veteran Buddy Program: Through this program, current employees who are military veterans are partnered with newly hired employees who are military veterans to assist them with their transition to life at Suburban Propane.
Additionally, military veterans who accept a non-seasonal full-time hourly position can also take advantage of the following:
- Military Relocation Allowance: Suburban Propane will provide you with a lump sum payment of $2,500 to cover some of your relocation expenses if you are relocating 50 miles or more. Military veterans who accept a non-seasonal full-time salaried position may be eligible for relocation assistance as well.
