Military CareersAt Schneider Electric, we’re building a culture in our US operations that embraces and empowers veterans, and in turn, is enriched by their experience, perspective, and capabilities. We know people with a military background possess numerous attributes, including loyalty, leadership ability, respect, integrity, duty, reliability, and working as team members. We value those attributes in our employees at Schneider Electric!

VETS Business Resource Group
Implemented in 2016, Schneider Electric offers employees the opportunity to join our VETS (Voice of Employees That Served) Business Resource Group. A BRG is a group of people with similar backgrounds, experiences or characteristics who share a common interest in professional development, improving corporate culture and business results. The goal of VETS is to facilitate the development and retention of veterans through outreach, empowering, mentoring and networking.
Let’s Do More Than Just Thank a Veteran
Veteran’s Day is a time for us to stop and reflect on the sacrifices military veterans made for their country, allies, and citizens. We should be thankful such brave and selfless people exist in our world. But more than just thanking veterans, it’s wise we seek out our military veterans when hiring.Read more
A smooth transition
"Throughout New Hire training and even just the first few days on the job, it became evident that Schneider Electric preferred to hire from the military. Even with varied backgrounds between technicians, the base knowledge and training [from the military] provided the best starting foundation for the job. Since there are so many of us that are prior military, the style and habits in the way we work made a good transition to learning the new policies as well as blending it with the practices we had already learned.”
