Eyemart Express Partners with US Army to Employ Veterans

(PRESS RELEASE) Approximately 4.4% of veterans find themselves unemployed, according to the most recent jobs report from the U.S. Department of Labor. National optical retailer Eyemart Express is teaming up with the U.S. Army’s Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) to reduce this statistic. The program guarantees soldiers a job interview for potential employment at the optical retailer’s 231 stores across the country.

“The job market is very competitive, and this partnership is an excellent opportunity to help qualified people grow a career in the optical industry,” says Michael Bender, Eyemart Express CEO. “The core values of the U.S. Army are aligned with our corporate values to put people first and serve others. We recognize the discipline, leadership, dedication, and technical skillsets that military members gain during their service, and we look forward to bringing more of those skills to our team.”

Eyemart Express offers a variety of training and development programs to cultivate career paths in the optical industry along with a competitive benefits package for all associates.

The optical retailer hosted a formal ceremony with the U.S. Army’s Partnership for Youth Success in Dallas to celebrate the long-term partnership.
