Casey's is a Military Partner

Casey's General Stores has proudly supported our military men and women for over four decades. We strive to hire military veterans because we value the unique talent and experience that these service members apply on the job at Casey's. We also believe that the military values of integrity, trust, dignity, passion and respect are a perfect match with our core values. Today, Casey's proudly employs over 750 active military and veteran workers in various positions across the company, from Grocery Truck Drivers and Store Managers, to positions at our Corporate Headquarters.

Robert J. Myers, Chairman

"Casey's General Store proudly supports the men and women who have served our country. After 22 years in the Army, I know firsthand that veterans have triumphed over adversity. They have the proven ability and understand practical ways to manage and achieve goals in even the most trying circumstances. They are trained to lead by example as well as through direction, delegation, motivation, and inspiration. The challenge is for businesses to understand how a soldier's past skills and responsibilities translate into the business environment. At Casey's we have many retired military scattered throughout our organization and we are honored to have their unique talent, loyalty and leadership. We value the training and leadership that soldiers gain from their military service and experience."
Robert J. Myers, Chairman

Craig Nelson, Distribution Center

"My military career has helped me in many ways, but I see attention to detail as one of the most important skills I have put to use at Casey's. Because Casey's is a growing company, attention to detail is very important, and one mistake can lead to a lot of time spent fixing whatever went wrong. The strong growth here at Casey's has been challenging and fun for me, because I feel I can make a difference in the Company – like I'm not just a cog in the wheel."
