Pride Values Veterans

Pride Mobility Products values the service veterans and their family members have given to our country. We support the hiring of veterans, returning service members, and their military spouses. We know the exceptional leadership, skills, and perspectives that veterans can bring to our business. We are committed to making this a great place for your next contribution.

Pride employees who are qualifying veterans get Veterans Day off as a paid holiday. That’s our small way of saying “thank you” for your service.

Organizations we support and work with in regards to employing veterans:

Pride truly values military veterans. It’s a great feeling to be recognized and appreciated by Pride, so many years after my military service. The continued support the company offers veterans is why Pride is one of the best employers to work for.  Not to mention, Pride offers products that enhance mobility to veterans and service members.

The training at Pride is really good and anyone in the military is used to a lot of training. The comradery is also great here, which is another big thing for military personnel because that’s what we all miss – the people.

Pride definitely highlights veterans and acknowledges they served our country through hanging veterans’ pictures on the walls, a paid day off for Veterans Day, and other programs. I think it’s good that they do all of this. This is the first company I’ve worked for that truly recognizes veterans.

Pride offers such a wide array of positions that just about every job in the military applies to Pride somehow. There is so much that a veteran can do here. I think it’s great that we hire veterans, and it’s a great place for them to get their feet wet into a civilian job.

We take care of veterans very well at Pride. We draw on veterans’ strengths and work with them to help them grow. Veterans usually know what to do, and they will easily adapt here.

Position at Pride: Quality Inspector I, Mississippi Mega QA Production

I really like how Pride recognizes the military/veterans and how supportive they have been to my husband (who also works at Pride) with him recently re-enlisting. Everyone at work asked me about him while he was gone to re-enlist. That alone show me that Pride not only supports the military, but they also care about military spouses and families.

Position at Pride: Assembler I, Mississippi Production

I got out of the military three years ago and was recently hired by Pride, but they have been really supportive and helpful. I just re-enlisted into the National Guard and Pride was supportive of my decision and was helpful to my wife while I was away to get back in. They were great in giving me an opportunity to serve again.
