Amazon is making a push to recruit veterans, and says it has ways to support them.
In a press release issued July 13th, the company says it aims to hire over 100,000 veterans and military spouses by 2024. This will add to what the company estimates is the 40,000 veterans already in its employ.
Ex-Air Force Major General John Quintas, former advisor for political-military affairs to the Pentagon, is heading up veteran recruitment efforts for Amazon.
Quintas retired in 2017, and said his experience in the military-industrial complex has been useful at Amazon.
