If you’re a veteran looking for a post-military career opportunity, NS might just be your next assignment.

NS recognizes that military veterans often make excellent railroaders. The company supports the federal “Joining Forces” initiative and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s “Hiring Our Heroes” program to help veterans and military spouses seek employment opportunities in the rail industry. An NS website allows veterans to search for railroad employment opportunities using their military job titles.

NS appreciates the service of men and women in uniform and approximately 4,000 NS employees are veterans. If NS-employed veterans are called to active duty through the Reserves or National Guard, they can fulfill their military duties with assurance that NS jobs will await their return. The company also provides income supplements and continues existing health and life insurance coverage during Reserve duty, offering benefits beyond those required by law.

NS repeatedly makes G.I. Jobs magazine’s list of “Top 100 Military Friendly Employers” and was named by to its recent list of “Most Valuable Companies for the Military."
