VAN BUREN, Ark. - USA Truck Inc. (Nasdaq: USAK), a leading capacity solutions provider headquartered in Van Buren, Arkansas, is a finalist for the 2017 Most Valuable Employers for Military. Awarded by RecruitMilitary, MVE recognition serves to help military-experienced job seekers identify the top employers to target for civilian careers.
“Nearly 30 percent of our driver team members are U.S. military veterans,” says James D. Reed, president and CEO. “Clearly, we put a premium on hiring veterans, and we’re honored to have our efforts recognized by such a prestigious organization.”
