Each and everyday, H-E-B honors the courage and sacrifices of those who serve our country and is proud to have military service members and Veterans as part of the H-E-B family. That’s why H-E-B is honored to once again, have been named a top workplace for military Veterans by popular job listing site Indeed. San Antonio-based H-E-B was ranked #4 and was the only retailer listed among the top 10 companies.
In its blog post, Indeed cites an H-E-B Partner (employee) who praised coworkers, the competitive hourly pay and the flexibility of the job, and adds that H-E-B is “by far the best place I have worked at since retiring from the military,” pointing specifically to the company’s solid management team as well as the “great benefits … and atmosphere.”
The rankings are based on employer ratings and reviews by employees on Indeed.
As important parts of the H-E-B family, Veterans are regularly honored for their courage and sacrifice throughout the year. This year, H-E-B saluted thousands of its Partners who have answered the call of duty at 325 Veterans Day receptions across the state. In addition, more than 600 H-E-B Partners who are currently deployed on military duty were sent H-E-B holiday care packages.
Throughout the year, caring for military service members and their families is a vital way the company supports the communities it serves. In 2013, the retailer launched H-E-B Operation Appreciation, a year-round initiative to honor and provide employment opportunities to military service members and their families. This year, more than 1,600 Veterans and about 1,000 military spouses were welcomed into the retailer’s ranks.
As part of this initiative, H-E-B and the H-E-B Tournament of Champions have gifted nearly 30 custom-built, mortgage-free homes across Texas, many of which are fully furnished, to severely injured military Veterans. H-E-B’s statewide tear-pad campaign raises funds for the homes and other military-serving non-profits, including the Military Child Education Coalition, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors and the USO. Additionally, H-E-B hosts a variety of events for the families of military service members such as Military Spouse Appreciation Day, which is a series of fun events held throughout Texas to acknowledge their significant contributions and sacrifices.
“Active duty military members, Veterans, and their families help make this a special place to work. We’re honored to call them Partners and we thank them for carrying the torch of liberty in service to the nation,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs. “At H-E-B, we recognize the courage and sacrifices of those called to serve our country on Veterans Day and throughout the year.”
