CSX Named Top Military Friendly Employer in Transportation Industry

November 17, 2011

CSX, a transportation company that provides rail, intermodal, and rail-to-truck transload services, has recently been recognized as the number three military-friendly employer on G.I. Jobs' 2012 Top 100 Military Friendly Employers list, ranking first in the transportation industry.

Holding the overall number three spot for the second year in a row, CSX has been included on the G.I. Jobs magazine annual ranking, which recognizes businesses that emphasize the recruitment of U.S. military veterans, since 2006.

"Hiring veterans is both an honor and a patriotic duty for CSX, and something we are committed to continuing," said Michael Ward, CSX chairman, president and chief executive officer. "Our military veterans prove themselves exceptional employees, and their hard work helps us to continue delivering quality service to our customers."

With nearly one in five employees a veteran of the armed services, CSX recognizes the integral role that veterans play. With their leadership, critical thinking, technical, and problem solving skills, veterans typically have the invaluable skills CSX actively recruits. Earlier this year, CSX was also one of 15 recipients, and the only two-time recipient, of the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, chosen from more than 4,000 applicants. This award recognizes employers that support active duty reservist employees.

CSX's relationship with U.S. troops extends beyond the hiring of America's servicemen and women. The military is also a valued customer, as CSX serves more military installations than any other Class I Railroad.

The annual G.I. Jobs rankings examine more than 5,000 American businesses with more than $500 million in annual revenues. G.I. Jobs ranks these businesses based on dedication to military hiring, percentage of new veteran hires, and internal recruitment programs, among other outreach activities.
