Sysco Corporation, the leading global foodservice distribution company, appeared on Military Makeover: Operation Career airing on Lifetime Television on Friday, July 22 and Thursday, July 28 at 7:30 a.m. ET. Hosted by Montel Williams, the show features military veterans that have transitioned into civilian life and profiles companies offering outstanding employment opportunities.

The episode will feature transportation supervisors Tim Jackson, a U.S. Army veteran from Sysco’s Central Illinois site and Eric Young, a U.S. Marine Corp Veteran from Sysco’s Ventura site.

Marie Robinson, Sysco’s Executive Vice President, Chief Supply Chain Officer and a Desert Storm and Desert Shield U.S. Army veteran will also be featured in the episode.

“At Sysco, we know that investing in veterans is simply good business,” said Robinson. “Military organizations have strong cultures and shared values, emphasize teamwork, build trust among members and understand the importance of people and relationships to mission success. These qualities, along with the fundamental skillsets the military instills in its members — honor, courage, discipline and service to others — make veterans uniquely strong job candidates not just at Sysco but in every type of business.”

Sysco employs dedicated resources focused on military recruiting who are experts at matching veterans’ skills and experience to the right opportunities at Sysco. The company also partners with military recruiting organizations RecruitMilitary and Orion that support veterans transitioning into civilian careers.

The Veteran’s Outreach Associate Resource Group (ARG) at Sysco creates and supports programs to recruit, retain and develop U.S. military veteran talent from a broad range of backgrounds in all areas of Sysco’s business.
