The 10 week program introduces you to the fundamentals of Shape, roll forming and welding. Following the initial coaching, you have the opportunity to choose the specific path you want to explore in-depth.
TEAM MEMBER SUPPORT
Transition isn’t always easy and team member support can ease challenges. The veteran mentor program partners experienced Shape team members with veterans to provide an immersive and collaborative training experience.
A community of veterans exists within the Shape Family, available for support and collaboration. The Shape Veterans Group unites to develop internal veteran programs, brainstorm on opportunities to apply relatable military talent, and engage in community service, including providing resources and volunteering.
ENGAGING OUTSIDE OF OUR WALLS
Shape aims to be a community partner through various programs, initiatives and volunteering, including engaging with our local veterans. We’re traveling the country to let you know Shape has employment opportunities. Locally, we’re involved with the Veterans Community Action Team in Kalamazoo, Lansing and Grand Rapids. In 2016, we were honored to be named a bronze level veteran-friendly employer by the Michigan Veterans Affair Agency. Connecting with veteran organizations, and creating an optimal employment environment is our commitment to providing you new career possibilities.
