Penske Named 2017 Military-Friendly Employer

Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics have been named 2017 Military-Friendly Employers by Victory Media, the publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine. Penske placed in the Bronze category.


This is the first year of a new format. Previously Victory issued a Top 100 list, and Penske had earned placement there for five straight years.

The Military-Friendly Employers designation includes extensive research and a data-driven survey of corporations nationally. According to Victory, the survey, methodology, criteria and weightings are created with the aid of an independent advisory council and tested by EY.

“Penske places a strong value on the wide array of skill sets and values that veterans bring to our workforce,” said Jennifer Sockel, Penske senior vice president of human resources. “We are proud to employ military veterans as well as active Reserve and National Guard service members.”

Over the last three years, veterans represented 11.4 percent of all new hires. Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics offer a wide range of career opportunities including: truck fleet maintenance technicians, truck drivers, fleet maintenance supervisors, operations management roles, as well as logistics and supply chain operations roles and many others.
