Public Environmental 6 Active Jobs

Absolute identity with one’s cause is the first and great condition of successful leadership.” – Woodrow Wilson

ARCA’s (NASDAQ:ARCI) 39 years of experience in the appliance industry includes nearly two decades of providing energy efficiency services. A pioneer in developing cutting-edge technologies to serve its clients, ARCA maximizes materials recycling while protecting natural resources from the environmentally damaging substances found in old appliances.

With more than 850 million major household appliances currently used in the United States, ARCA's three business components are uniquely positioned in the industry to work together to provide a full array of appliance-related services for our customers.

ARCA's three interrelated operations touch all aspects of the life of a major household appliance: our eighteen company-owned stores under the name ApplianceSmart, Inc.® are in the business of selling new appliances directly to consumers; ARCA's regional centers process appliances at end of life to remove environmentally damaging substances and produce material byproducts for recycling; and ARCA Advanced Processing, LLC employs advanced technology to refine traditional appliance recycling techniques to achieve optimal environmental benefits. Together these three business sectors create synergies that allow us to accomplish what no one component could do alone.

Corporate Values & Social Responsibility

Deeply rooted in ARCA’s values is a culture based on a shared vision of customer service excellence, environmental integrity, technological innovation, community involvement and environmental stewardship. ARCA is a proud supporter of the PACER Center (Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights), a Minnesota based non-profit whose mission is to expand opportunities and enhance the quality of life of children and young adults with disabilities and their parents nationwide. ARCA also actively supports the AESP Foundation, which is the 501 (c)(3) philanthropic arm of the Association of Energy Service Professionals. Additional charitable contributions and volunteer events, on behalf of ARCA and its subsidiaries, are coordinated throughout each year.
