Employer of Choice

Choose an organization that recognizes and values your military service. Choose Dead River Company.

Dead River Company makes a concerted effort to both recruit and retain military veterans. Why? Because the opportunity we offer is more than just a job; it’s a mission – to deliver energy and peace of mind. With over 10% of our employees being veterans, we know that your military experience aligns well with the company’s core values of Integrity, Caring and Excellence – and that you will deliver as an employee for us just as much as we will deliver as an employer for you.

To accomplish the mission requires delivering on promises made; executing with excellence; upholding integrity and being part of a team that cares about one another, our customers and the communities we serve.

This year marks:

  • The third year the US Department of Labor honored Dead River Company with the HIRE Vets Gold Medallion Award in recognition of our commitment to hiring and retaining Veterans. Dead River Company was the first business in Maine to receive this award!
  • Dead River Company becoming a Partnership for Your Success (PaYS) Program business partner. PaYS provides America's Soldiers with an opportunity to serve their country while they prepare for their future. PaYS Partners – like Dead River Company – guarantee Soldiers an interview and possible employment after the Army. (Please see video above).

  • Dead River Company being awarded the Pro Patria Award by the Employer Support of The Guard and Reserve in recognition of support of Guard & Reserve employees through leadership practices and policies that make it easier for employees to participate in the National Guard and Reserve.

  • In 2020, Dead River Company was recognized as a platinum-level New Hampshire Veteran-Friendly Business.


Across our four-state footprint, we work collaboratively with a number of Veteran organizations, to include:

Caring is in Dead River Company’s DNA. This is witnessed firsthand by our veteran employees who are deployed and the support they and their families receive. It’s also evident in the emphasis the company places on giving back to the communities we serve through philanthropy and sponsorships. House in the Woods is among the organizations we support. As a Maine-based nonprofit organization, House in the Woods offers outdoor programs to bring together small groups of active military, veterans, and their family members to relax, share, bond, and deal with the stress, loss, grief, and other emotions which can haunt the grieving soul. Dead River Company also offers paid time to volunteer through the company’s “Time to Share” program.
