Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of our #AskaRecruiter series. We’re going to answer another frequently asked question “What’s it like to work at Verizon?” Well, as you might imagine, this topic is near and dear to the hearts of recruiters, who work hard to ensure candidates can both do their job — and love it. The working environment plays a big part in that equation as candidates consider a career at Verizon.


At some point, the work environment always comes up. It’s natural. Candidates want to know more about working in a Verizon store, office or location: what it looks like, how their potential coworkers interact and if there’s anywhere to eat. It’s up to us to communicate this background to you. Verizon is large and includes many different companies and brands each with a unique work environment. Here are some common attributes you may find throughout Verizon:


Our Credo. You may have already heard us talk about this document but we can’t stress its importance enough. The Credo continues to guide and unite us on a daily basis. It appears in our offices as well as our stores. We keep it bookmarked on our computers and refer back to it frequently. Understanding what the Credo is, what it means is and how it functions is at the heart of Verizon and everything we do.


Cool benefits. We know pay and benefits matter, so we strive to go beyond the basics. And though our packages vary based on market, these often include things like paid leave for new parents, tuition assistance, plenty of paid time off, on-site fitness centers or discounts to participating local gyms, 401(k) savings with company match, Verizon product discounts, an employee assistance program and more. We want to make sure you’re taken care of whether you’re at work or just living your life.


An inside track. Still want to know more? We got you. Our Up to Speed team produces daily videos and content dedicated to everything happening around and inside Verizon. Better yet, they share these updates on our Inside Verizon page as well as their dedicated social channels. This helps to keep our employees informed and up to date, and gives you the opportunity to learn more about our day to day from members of the Verizon V Team. And for more Careers info, follow us on our social channels.
