CSX Named Most Military Friendly Employer In Transportation Industry For Third Consecutive Year

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX was recognized as the number two military-friendly employer on G.I. Jobs ' 2013 Top 100 Military Friendly Employers ranking today, leading the transportation industry for the third consecutive year.

"We actively work to hire the best employees to serve our customers, and that means recruiting U.S. military veterans with strong backgrounds in team environments, safety training and leadership skills," said Michael J. Ward, CSX chairman, president and chief executive officer. "As we prepare to celebrate Veterans Day, CSX is proud to support and employ the men and women who have defended and protected us."

This recognition celebrates CSX's ongoing commitment to support the U.S. military and its veterans – one in five CSX employees have served in the armed forces. In May, CSX was also honored as a Most Valuable Employer for Military by CivilianJobs.com.

Since 2006, G.I Jobs has issued an annual ranking of businesses based on veteran recruiting practices. The publication examines more than 5,000 American businesses with more than $500 million in annual revenues. Out of these eligible members, only two percent make the annual ranking. G.I. Jobs ranks each company by weighted factors, including long-term commitments to hire veterans, specialized military recruiting programs and supportive policies for reserve member employment while off duty.
