Veterans have ranked the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection agency as the third-best place to work in the country, according to the newly released 2017 survey.
CBP was the only government agency to make the top 10 companies in Monster and Military.com’s joint study. The agency was ranked second place in 2016, which was a major step up from not even making the top 10 in 2015, the survey’s first year.
“Veterans are vital to the success for CBP. We are honored to have Veterans represent 35 percent of CBP’s workforce,” acting CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in a statement. “This country is a model of freedom and democracy because our military has stepped up time and again to challenge tyranny and terror. At CBP, they continue to serve our nation honorably. They serve in uniform, patrolling our borders and guarding our ports of entry.
