IRVING, TEXAS – 7-Eleven, Inc. is partnering with the U.S. Army by joining the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program. The partnership was formalized at a signing ceremony this morning, with Joe DePinto, 7-Eleven CEO and PaYS Marketing Analyst, Crancena Ross, MSP in attendance.
“At 7-Eleven, we understand and value the sacrifices veterans make for our country, and for us all. We’re proud to be a part of this great program that helps those who serve find employment as they transition to civilian life,” said Joe DePinto, 7‑Eleven President and CEO.
The PaYS program is designed to help soldiers prepare for a career after the Army by connecting them with employers who understand the skills, discipline and work ethic that military service members bring to a business. This program is part of a long-term U.S. Army effort to help soldiers forge professional relationships with businesses and encourage business owners to look to the Army as a plentiful and reliable recruiting source. Since PaYS began in 2000, more than 620 employers have partnered with the program, including Coca-Cola, Sony and Amazon.
“We are excited to welcome 7-Eleven into our growing corporate partnership family for our PaYS program,” said PaYS Marketing Analyst, Crancena Ross, MSP. “This relationship will solidify the growing opportunities our soldiers have after military life and reaffirm that they have options and career paths ahead of them.”
In addition to its partnership with the U.S. Army, 7-Eleven is a Military Friendly Employer and supports veterans by offering military incentives and special financing for Franchise opportunities, as well as rewarding civilian careers that complement and build on the skills and experiences already acquired during military service. 7‑Eleven supports numerous local and national veteran initiatives, including the JPMorgan Chase Veteran Jobs Mission and Veterans Advantage.
