One of the more important skills you learn in the military is attention to detail. That same skill is crucial in the rail industry, since safety and customer satisfaction both depend on how closely you pay attention to every aspect of the operation. I’ve seen first-hand several veterans – men and women, younger and more seasoned – adapt well to the industry.-Kirk Bedford, General Manager, The Bay Line Railroad
G&W has found that veterans possess skills, competencies and work experience that transfers well to rail operations and actively recruits veterans or transitioning military personnel.
In fact, G&W is a supporter of American Corporate Partners (ACP), a national nonprofit focused on helping returning veterans and active-duty spouses find careers through one-on-one mentoring. Dozens of our team members participate in this mentoring program every year.
