America Needs You!
Our military is only as good as its equipment, and equipment is only as good as the people that maintain it!
Looking to transition from military service to a career in the commercial trucking industry?
Service Allies is the answer for you! 
The Service Allies program connects military veterans with career opportunities at International® Truck and IC Bus® Dealers. We believe the skills you learned in the military are easily transferable to the transportation industry, so consider a career with us!

Benefits to military veterans:

  • A smooth transition from military service to a secure career path.
  • Long-term career potential, not just a job, in a growth industry.
  • Great compensation with strong benefits packages.
  • Placement assistance from VetFirst Solutions Group so you can live and work where you prefer.
  • Satisfaction of knowing you help keep America running.
  • Opportunity to work for established local and national companies.
  • Chance to leverage your heavy equipment experience in the military into a career in the transportation industry.
Benefits to International® Truck and IC Bus® Dealers:

  • Guaranteed satisfaction with job candidates—we carefully screen all candidates before they arrive at your dealership.
  • Veterans returning to the civilian workforce already have qualities you’re looking for—drive, responsibility, and the ability to get the job done!
  • Access to experienced and disciplined military talent pool with existing training, which reduces training costs.
  • Fewer entry-level hires means generating service gross profits faster.
  • A chance to support veterans who have served our country by offering them a career.
  • Transitioning military veterans are provided with free relocation to any location of their choosing (continental United States) as a part of their transition package.

What we will do

We have leveraged existing relationships with SFL-TAP (Soldier for Life – Transition Assistance Program), Base TSM (Transition Service Managers), the Department of Defense (DoD), and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring our Heroes program to provide the connections needed.  Our goal is to offer you alternatives in your transition journey:  a DoD SkillBridge authorized 180-day internship,  direct placement at one of our dealer locations, and diesel training credit for qualified veterans.

Military Credit Program

International® Truck accepted / approved service training and credit curriculum. Credit for certain levels of International Truck required technician training given to military mechanics utilizing existing curriculum from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.  


Implementing veteran internships with military installations and International® Truck Dealerships around the country allows service managers to start job shadowing up to 180 days from transition date at International® Truck Dealerships at no payroll cost to dealers for the internship. We will coordinate with International® Truck and the Department of Defense SkillBridge Program for internship approval and documentation.  

Direct Placement 

Some veterans may already be fully qualified diesel technicians.  In these scenarios, we will be able to place them directly with International® Truck and IC Bus® Dealers reducing training expense and increasing Uptime. 

Navistar and Hill International have provided me with the opportunity to expand my training as a diesel technician. They offered me hands-on training with highly experienced technicians starting my very first day on the job. This opportunity has given me a sense of relief transitioning into the real world. I know I have the support I need to build a successful career. Getting out of the military is very stressful. There is a lot of uncertainty because you’re moving back home without knowing if you’ll have a job when you get there. The Service Allies program took away that stress and uncertainty and I am very blessed to have had this opportunity.

Tyler West | Marine Corps Veteran, former military diesel technician | Hill International Trucks, LLC

One of the hardest things to find in entry and mid-level technician candidates these days are discipline, commitment to his chosen field as truck technician, and readiness to work. I have not had that issue with my VETFIRST technician candidate Tyler West. Tyler, who will soon reach the end of his Marine Corps commitment, demonstrates those traits instilled in him from his years of Marine training.

In my mind,  VETFIRST is a success for several reasons. It matched us with an able and experienced local technician candidate and gave us at Hill International the chance to help a Veteran return to civilian life a productive career. It gave a Veteran the chance to return to his hometown area  with career options that match his choice of after military service field of choice.
