Sears Holdings surpassed its 2013 goal to hire 6,000 veterans and veteran spouses. These associates joined the company in a variety of roles, including store manager, category manager and marketing project manager. The company's efforts to bring talented veterans into leadership roles is gaining traction as it realized a 20 percent increase in salaried veteran hires from 2012 to 2013, and plans to continue that trend moving forward.
