ATS actively recruits military veterans because we value what they bring to our company - valuable technical experience, education, leadership skills and a strong work ethic.

Aviation Technical Services (ATS) today announced that it has earned the 2018 Military Friendly® Employer designation by Victory Media. First published in 2003, Military Friendly® Employers is the most comprehensive resource for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Employers is provided to service members and their families, helping them discover the best post-military career opportunities available.

“ATS is proud to be named a Military Friendly® Employer,” said Adrian Osborn, ATS General Manager of Airframe and Engineering Services. “ATS actively recruits military veterans because we value what they bring to our company - valuable technical experience, education, leadership skills and a strong work ethic. Currently ATS employs over 250 veterans who have found great success with their post-military careers, and we would like to hire many more.”

Companies and organizations earning the Military Friendly® Employer designation were evaluated using three data sources in the scoring methodology: publicly available data from federal agencies; personal opinion data from veteran employees; and proprietary Military Friendly® survey data from more than 200 participating organizations.

Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.

ATS will be showcased along with other 2018 Military Friendly® Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® magazine, the January 2018 issue of Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
