Veterans Day is when we recognize our veterans and active duty military families for their service to our great nation. At Schneider Tree Care, this holiday carries extra meaning since two of our principals are vets themselves!
“America without her soldiers would be like God without his angels.” — Claudia Pemberton (proud member of the Military Writers Society of America, American Authors Association, …)
Today we thank veterans all across the USA as well as our in-house duo, Erich and Kurt Schneider, for their service and sacrifice. Erich and Kurt Schneider grew up in a rural community. After high school, both brothers enlisted in the U.S. Air Force to serve our country.
“I learned self-discipline because I had to get up every day and do the job assigned to me. I learned how to follow orders and submit to authority. I learned that the world was much bigger than the little town I grew up in.” — Erich Schneider, CEO & Visionary, Schneider Tree Care.
After their military service, the Schneider brothers decided to build a business together. The lessons they learned during their service helped them to develop our “Core Values”.
- Do the Right Thing
- Fanatical Client Service
- Culture of Safety
- Pursuit of Excellence
- Team First
We live and die by these core values and they have propelled our company to new heights over the past 26 years. Schneider Tree Care is now 80 employees strong, working to “fanatically” serve our clients from our four locations and three franchise operations across South and North Carolina.
We always look forward to bringing veterans on board within our ranks whenever there is an opportunity in our hiring processes. Veterans make great team members for many reasons, including their innate sense of discipline and the training that exudes the highest levels of work ethic.
On the occasion of Veterans Day, we truly appreciate and honor our men and women in uniform. We don’t know them all, but we owe them all. Happy Veterans Day!
