V Team|Veteran Outreach

Connecting with America’s best

The talent, leadership skills and commitment to teamwork exemplified by former members of the U.S. Armed Forces are well aligned with the needs of our business. That’s why we don’t just thank veterans, we hire them. Programs such as our Military Talent Network are specifically targeted to recruit veterans and access their diverse skill sets. In 2018, we hired 1,122 veterans. We also support military spouses with career guidance by connecting them to a military-spouse recruiter.

We’re proud to have more than 10,300 veterans serving our customers. Our military leave policy allows our service members to continue serving their country. When V Teamers are called up to active duty, we bridge the gap between military pay and Verizon pay to ensure their family members and financial and healthcare needs are cared for.

In addition, Verizon was named 2018’s:

  • Top Military Friendly company for our commitment to the military community, service members and veterans across all aspects of our business.
  • Number six in the Best for Vets: Employers survey.
  • #1 Military spouse friendly employer by Military Friendly™. Verizon was recognized as a company that understands and respects the needs of a military spouse while providing a fulfilling career. Pre-identified candidates utilize our Military Recruitment Team and Military Spouse Network to find career opportunities that match their needs.

Hiring Our Heroes

Verizon is a proud sponsor of the Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship program, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce initiative that matches service members with participating companies to smooth the transition from their military to their civilian careers.

We are also a Chairman’s Circle Member of the Chamber’s Veteran Employment Advisory Council.
