Why Work at the Company?

Roush's commitment to veterans starts at the top with our founder & chairman, Jack Roush. He has a personal story involving a USMC veteran. This and his absolute love of country (his signature always includes USA under his name) led him to create the Roush Veterans Initiatives Program (RVIP) in April of 2014. From executive leadership to hiring managers to recruiters our company realizes the value of hiring our nation's heroes. We have many career opportunities for veterans and many of the jobs we look to fill are a direct tie to military occupations. Our commitment to quality, family atmosphere and never-ending search of innovative solutions provide a work environment that is very similar to what most veterans experienced while wearing a military uniform.
