Flynn's partners with U.S. Army success program

Posted: Updated:

At Flynn Tire Group corporate headquarters in West Middlesex, Joe Flynn signed on to partner with the United States Army in it's PAYS program.

PAYS stands for Partnership for Youth Success. The program helps reservists find jobs while they serve and helps soldiers find jobs after their military service ends.

"They get to connect with corporations that desire soldiers that have that experience and background, and the companies get that soldier that's trained and dedicated and decorated," said Scott Bartley, LTC., U.S. Army.

After the reserve training, or completion military service, those trained with mechanical skills in the Army, who are part of the PAYS program will be guaranteed an interview for possible employment with Flynn's.

"I think the Army brings a lot. We share similar core values and we can train people. We have a great training program within Flynn's Tire. We can train people skills, tire and automotive service industry and the trucking industry," said Joe Flynn, III, President of Flynn Tire Group.

Several other local companies have also signed on.

"Falcon Trucking, Pi and I , Infocision, PGT Trucking in Manaca is a PAYS partner and these companies are looking to hire soldiers," said Marie Haberstroh, Public Affairs Specialist, U.S. Army.

The strategic partnership is setting up win-win situations for the veteran, company, and customers.
