Life at U.S. Cellular:
The Success of One Is the Success of All.
At U.S. Cellular, who you are and what you do will get others pumped. And vice-versa. Because we share a common purpose regardless of role. And solve problems as a team. Every associate can make a meaningful contribution, and every voice is heard and respected. We call it the Dynamic Organization.
Building Better Communities—it’s not only what we do, it’s who we are. We invest in the communities where we do business and we show how much we care by donating countless hours of our time, talent, and energy to local organizations, groups and causes that we are passionate about.
We support local K-12 and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) educational programming with national relationships with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and JASON Learning. We support more than 50 local Boys & Girls Clubs where our time, talent and financial resources help to create meaningful impact for the organization’s Academic Pillar. Our work with JASON Learning focuses on developing unique curriculum to encourage students to consider careers related to STEM and provide teachers with the resources to promote opportunities in this field. Our philanthropic strategy with these nonprofits is to engage our associates in volunteer activities and help develop a talent pipeline for future STEM leaders.
Doubling Our Associates' Generosity
U.S. Cellular associates have big hearts—and it shows in our Associate Matching Program. We match their charitable donations to nonprofit organizations dollar-for-dollar, up to $2,500 per year, with an annual cap of $250,000.
We’re in the business of connecting calls—and people. The passion our associates have is on full display every day. You can feel their energy as we volunteer at local schools and nonprofits in our communities. We’re proud to support the passions of our associates as we work toward the goal of 35,000 volunteer hours annually.
Benefits and Beyond
U.S. Cellular offers a compensation package that is comprehensive and customizable: Benefits and Beyond. Concerned about your physical health, finances and future? So are we. And you can see this commitment in all that we provide. U.S. Cellular extends all benefits to same- and opposite-sex spouses/domestic partners, as well as eligible children of domestic partners and dependents.
Your Health and Well-Being
Many of our benefits are available from Day One for both full- and part-time associates (exclusions for limited term associates). But when it comes to health and well-being we’ve got you covered. We offer your choice of medical plans, health savings account (HSA), dental, vision, life insurance/accidental death and dismemberment, short- and long-term disability, flexible spending account (FSA), and confidential assistance.
Your Financial Security
Planning for your financial future can be a huge help tomorrow. That’s why we offer 401(k) plan with match plans and a 100% employer-funded pension plan. There’s even an associate support fund—which is funded by the company and our associates—for life’s unexpected emergencies and financial challenges.
Your Work Life
Work can be challenging at times. Why not make it as fun and convenient as possible? U.S. Cellular offers a business-casual dress code and flexible work arrangements for many roles.
Your Personal Life
We care about you. Not just as an associate, but as a person. So, U.S. Cellular offers benefits that enhance life away from work as well. You’ll enjoy paid time off, education assistance (100% for full-timers, 60% for part-timers for qualifying programs) and associate adoption assistance.
Note: U.S. Cellular reserves the right to amend, modify, revoke or terminate any of its benefit plans, in whole or in part, at any time, for any reason, without prior notice, and without approval of any employee, former employee or other person.
Training and Development
We live in an era of rapid change and complexity. But the team at U.S. Cellular takes the time to care about you—and your success. We’ve made an exceptional commitment to training and development. That means you’ll receive learning and performance tools, foundational programs, onboarding courses and other resources. Plus, you’ll get training that’s unique to your individual role. And throughout your U.S. Cellular career, you’ll use the Learning Management System (LMS). It includes online courses for professional and personal development, and tracks much of your training history.
