WOS Partners with United Rentals to Train Veterans

WOS proudly welcomes its newest partner, United Rentals, to the nonprofit's initiative to provide career and educational opportunities to returning post-9/11 Veterans.

United Rentals, the largest equipment rental company in the world, with an integrated network of 969 rental locations in 48 states and 10 Canadian provinces, turned to WOS to prepare eight Veterans for roles as inside sales representatives across the U.S. The Inside Sales Representative is responsible for a variety of branch functions, including customer relations, in-branch equipment rentals and merchandise sales, and equipment presentation.

This fall, Veterans will begin a certificate program at University of North Carolina-Charlotte before going to work for United Rentals, which has been hailed as one of the most Veteran-friendly companies in the U.S.

This partnership will launch the nonprofit's second program in Charlotte. In July, WOS began a training program for Veterans who will consult Merck's shared services organization.

"WOS is thrilled to welcome United Rentals to our growing family," said WOS Founder and Chairman Dr. Arthur Langer. "We are excited to work with the UR team to train Veterans for exciting opportunities and look forward to the continued expansion of our programs in North Carolina."
