Verizon Wireless is looking to fill 98 new positions in the state of South Carolina by the end of March.
A press release from Verizon Wireless states the positions will be based across South Carolina and interested candidates may apply online by visiting the Verizon Wireless website at www.vzwcareers.com.
Bob Kelley, a spokesperson from Verizon Wireless, said the new positions include full-time customer specialists and retail employees. The new positions offer competitive salaries and benefits, including health care coverage that begins on the first day of employment, and participation in the company’s 401 (k) program with a dollar-for-dollar match of up to six percent of an employee’s salary contribution.
“We are encouraging candidates who are interested to go online and enter their information,” Kelley told The Journal Scene. “The growth in the state has been extremely good.”
Verizon, which employs 3,700 South Carolinians, offers tuition reimbursement, adoption assistance and annual bonuses. The company promotes work/life balance by offering lactation rooms for new mothers, on-site college courses, education study rooms, dining facilities and fitness centers staffed with personal trainers.
Kelley said there are varying numbers of positions opening across all the states in the country, but in particular South Carolina has been growing “rapidly” for a number of years now.
“We certainly are hopeful to fill all 98 positions,” he said. “It’s go superior benefits.”
