A U.S. military veteran is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "the United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including their life."
That is honor. There are too many people in this country who no longer understand that. We do.
APi Group appreciates the leadership, loyalty and superb qualifications that each veteran brings to the civilian workplace. These qualities and skills are transferable as positive assets to any organization, which is why we are active in our veteran recruitment. We offer veterans an opportunity to start a career with a company that honors their military service and invests in their future.
We are proud to help support and train all veterans and wounded warriors as they transition to a civilian career at one of our 40+ companies in more than 200 locations. Every year we hire 400+ veterans across our family of companies and help place them in one of our many businesses.
The Veteran's Rotational Program (VRP) is designed to assist veterans in their transition to a civilian job with one of the APi Group companies. No prior construction experience is required. VRP participants rotate between several APi Group companies. Each rotation is approximately 90-120 days. The purpose of the program is to familiarize the veteran hire with what the particular company does and to give them an opportunity to apply their skills to a specific job. At the end of the rotation year, the candidate is placed in a position with one of APi Group’s companies.
APi Group is a company that places an immense value on the leadership and experience of military veterans. I feel like veterans leaving the high esprit de corps and camaraderie of the military will find that a similar culture exists within this group of life safety and specialty construction companies. We are values based businesses with high moral and ethical standards that veterans can easily relate with. In the six years I have been with APi, I have seen the Group continue to find ways to give back to those who have served our nation.

Plain and simple, APi Group truly values and respects the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women. The strong sense of camaraderie, the common drive toward excellence, and an environment where everyone is held to the highest level of integrity were key reasons that I chose to work at APi.
