Deploy Your Skills: Transitioning from Military Service to Civilian Success

  • At Grainger, we are proud to support Veterans, active military members and military families. We value the skills, experience, leadership and dedication you bring to the workforce. The loyalty required for service to our nation is exceptional, and such commitment to working as a team is inspiring. This sense of solidarity and service is part of Grainger’s core foundation.

    Our tradition of military service began with our founder, William Grainger, who served in the U.S. Navy during World War I and later as a member of the War Production Board during World War II. As a Veteran, I am proud to work at a company built on the foundation of teamwork; trying new things, respecting and supporting each other and celebrating our achievements together.

  • Grainger’s purpose-driven culture, our people, and the strong support we provide to Veterans, military reservists and their families is what makes us an employer of choice among Veterans. We value Veterans for their diverse perspectives and experiences that contribute to making our company a great place to work.

  • I have been fortunate to have a meaningful and fulfilling role with Grainger while serving as a Financial Management Officer in the IL Army National Guard. Grainger has consistently supported my military obligations and ensured this commitment would not impede my civilian career progress. I am so thankful to work for a company that consistently supports the military and truly means it!
