Polaris Industries, manufacturer of high quality off-road vehicles, has partnered with Orion International, the nation's largest military career placement firm, to offer jobs to U.S. Veterans. Polaris interviewed Veterans for opportunities within Engineering, Planning, Logistics, and Operations, on March 3rd and 4th at Orion's Distinguished Candidate Conference in Houston, TX, and at an exclusive Polaris Hiring Event on March 5th and 6th at Fort Campbell, KY.
Founded in 1954, Polaris Industries designs, engineers, manufactures and markets innovative, high quality off-road vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and the Polaris RANGER® and RZR® side-by-side vehicles, snowmobiles, motorcycles and on-road electric/hybrid powered vehicles. Polaris values the skills and values that military members have to offer, and recognizes their sacrifice and dedication. Recently a Polaris employee, Nathan Good, was presented with the Patriotic Employer Award, "for contributing to National Security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America's National Guard and Reserve Force."
A career with Polaris represents an excellent opportunity to make a difference and grow professionally. With over 5300 employees, Polaris helps develop the careers of its veteran employees through programs like Annual Performance Feedback & Development, General Core Skill Trainings, and Leadership Development Training Programs. Polaris also offers a comprehensive benefits program that is contemporary and fully competitive.
"Polaris seeks to hire Veterans due to the values and experiences that Veterans acquire while serving in the Military", said Amy Fossum, Staffing Manager, Polaris Industries. "These values and experiences are in direct correlation with the Polaris company Values - including Leadership, Adaptability, Technical Skills, Problem Solving, Decision Making, Adventure, Loving outdoors, and so much more".
