Who We Are
With over six million customers in 26 states, U.S. Cellular® is the fifth largest wireless service carrier in the nation. We owe every bit of success to our associates—people with a real passion for their work who are committed to "doing the right thing." You would be proud to work with them.
We don't just talk teamwork. We live it. We respect each other's contributions, and take ownership for our actions. Even if you don't work directly with customers, you'll support other U.S. Cellular associates so that they, in turn, can consistently provide the level of service our customers have come to expect. Everyone plays an important role.
We are proud of our supportive culture. In fact, we work hard to ensure our organization's environment is one that fosters trust, respect for each other's individualism, and the highest ethical standards—one that genuinely allows our associates to thrive.
"This is a company that strives to be ethical, open, inviting, honest...and it succeeds!"
Our Dynamic Organization
When you join U.S. Cellular®, you'll soon realize the power of our core values. Known as our Dynamic Organization, or the D.O., our principles create the foundation for the culture you'll be working in—one that is built on establishing strong relationships between our customers, and each other.
The D.O. fosters an environment of open and honest communication, which breeds trust and respect among team members, and directly affects the customer experience. At U.S. Cellular, you'll know that your opinions are valued and that your contributions are respected and rewarded—another reason why we've been named as one of the 100 Best Companies by regional magazines.
Pride is another important aspect of the D.O. Our associates find satisfaction in delivering the very best in service and support. At U.S. Cellular, you'll find engaged, dedicated people who care about their coworkers as much as they care about providing quality customer service.
"There's a spirit here; you sense it in the halls, that people like this company; they like their jobs. It's an unguarded, uncontrived feeling—it's just true, and it really touches me. You see it all over the company. It's cool."
At U.S. Cellular® we are passionate about our customers and our communities. At the end of the day, we know that this passion sets us apart from others in our industry. To our communities, we are more than just a wireless provider.
Each year, U.S. Cellular donates more than $3 million in charitable contributions to nonprofit organizations through grants and other programs. Our Associate Matching Gifts program matches dollar-for-dollar an associate's gift to a nonprofit up to $2,500 per year.
"I am so thankful every day that I have the opportunity to be part of a company that truly cares not just about their customers and employees, but also about our community, our future generations as well!"
We do everything we can to assist our communities. When schools across the nation faced devastating budget cuts that could endanger academic and extracurricular activities, U.S. Cellular launched "Calling All Communities," a $1 million giveaway that allowed communities to vote for the school of their choice to win one of ten $100,000 donations. And, through the Community Phone Program, U.S. Cellular provides free wireless phone service to veterans, military personnel, homeless shelters, senior centers and other community organizations during the holidays so that people can connect with their loved ones—because making the connection is what we're all about at U.S. Cellular.
What's It Like to Work Here
You'll feel it from the moment you join us at U.S. Cellular®. Our people are excited by their work, and their drive to succeed is inspiring. Working with such motivated people, you'll want to mirror their efforts. And, your enthusiasm will allow you to start achieving your goals from day one. You'll have all the training and support you need to meet the challenge—the kind that empowers you to make real connections with your customer, and achieve more in your career. Everywhere you turn, there is an opportunity to learn...to give...to grow.
We believe training is more than something you "go through" as a new associate. In fact, over the life of your career, you'll have many opportunities to expand your skills and knowledge through formal training and development programs that cover everything from technologies and services to management and leadership skills. Coupled with your practical, hands-on experience, we foster an environment that gives you the opportunity to take ownership of your career, and create your own professional path.
"Our stores are some of the few places you can go and get a genuine smile and a meaningful handshake. You don't see a roomful of sales reps with dollar signs in their eyes. People are smiling because they are actually happy."
How Will You Contribute
No matter what your role at U.S. Cellular®, you'll make contributions that ensure our customers have the best wireless experience possible. Our company operates as a team, and each associate has an important function in maintaining the quality reputation of the customer experience.
U.S. Cellular associates convey a sense of pride in their work. When you join us, you'll feel inspired knowing that your efforts have a direct impact on the company and the customers we serve.
You'll also have a positive impact on the community. U.S. Cellular makes it a priority to give back to the community through a variety of charitable donations and volunteer programs. You'll have the opportunity to support causes you care about, and make a tangible difference in the lives of others.
"This is the first time I have this feeling that I want to commit to one company for the rest of my life."
There's something special about working at U.S. Cellular®. It's a place where we care about each other and are successful together because no matter where we work within our Dynamic Organization, we share the same goal—providing the very best customer experience. It's why you'll find an energy and excitement that's different from other companies. And, isn't that a great way to feel about your career?
Whether you are fueled by a passion for the fast-paced field of sales, have a natural flair for customer service, or prefer a technical or operations support role, we have opportunities suited to your unique talents and interests.
"I have no doubt that you'll find all the people you work with at U.S. Cellular to be amazing. That isn't by accident, it is by design."
Careers In Customer Care
This is no ordinary call center. This is a U.S. Cellular® Customer Care Center, a place where it's all about providing solutions and building connections with our customers.
Here, you'll find a work experience unlike any call center you've worked in before. To begin with, we measure success by our ability to satisfy our customers, and not by the number of calls handled. We believe the time you spend making your customer feel at ease is important to making sure each customer experience is the best it can be. And, at our Customer Care Centers, you don't have to talk over a sea of other call center employees to be heard. You'll have your own personal cubicle to work in, so you can focus your thoughts and put the customer first. Customer satisfaction—we believe that's what customer care is all about.
Another big difference? We have fun. We care about each other. And, together we succeed. You'll enjoy being a part of our team.
As a member of our Customer Care team, you'll be the voice of U.S. Cellular to our customers. In fact, we consider Customer Care one of our most important roles. That's why we maintain a 1:12 ratio of coaches to associates, so you can depend on continual training and lots of communication and feedback.
You'll spend six weeks in training to learn all about our products, services and processes. You'll get to know your responsibilities—and U.S. Cellular's expectations—in delivering superior service to our customers. That way, you'll be well prepared before you ever handle your first call. And, you'll feel empowered knowing that your contributions are valued and encouraged, and that leadership respects your opinions.
Our structure promotes growth. We make a strong commitment to promote from within—in fact, many of our leaders started their U.S. Cellular career right here. Plus, you'll find the experience and knowledge you'll gain in Customer Care makes a great foundation for your growing career.
"I feel 100% able to care for customers the way they should be."
Careers In Information Services
Implementing technologies that help us serve our customers—and each other—better. That's Information Services at U.S. Cellular®.
Here, your work has real impact on our business. Whether you're working on a new system implementation or an upgraded customer care system for our call centers, you're helping to free our associates from distractions so they can focus on the customer.
Our IS team is the technological backbone of our system. You'll work on challenging projects that provide our customers the quality service they expect. You'll find variety in your tasks that makes every day exciting and interesting. And, you'll have flexibility, so you can manage your work day without being micro-managed. We'll provide what you need to take ownership of your work, and your career.
That's why it takes a special type of person to be a part of this team. It takes someone who cares about helping people, and is interested in using their technology skills to do just that. Someone ready to take on big responsibilities and help us deliver solutions that put customer satisfaction first.
You will feel proud knowing that leadership respects your expertise and encourages your input. And, we'll provide you with development opportunities that will prepare you for your next steps on your own leadership path. Best of all, every day you'll see the difference your work has on our business. It's what makes our work extremely satisfying.
"I enjoy working around people, especially leaders, who are rooted and grounded on the professional side, yet are everyday people that can relate."
Careers In Retail Sales
As a U.S. Cellular® sales associate, you play an integral part in our ongoing success. To our customers, you're the face of U.S. Cellular. What they'll see is someone passionate, informed and confident. That's because you'll have our entire team behind you—supporting you—providing you with what you need to be successful, from training to leadership support to technical information. You're on the front lines of our Dynamic Organization, and you'll have the support of every associate to ensure you have what you need to deliver exceptional service every day.
What truly makes Retail Sales at U.S. Cellular different is the way we treat our customers. You'll have the opportunity to really connect, form lasting relationships and build a level of customer loyalty unlike any you've experienced. We believe that listening and understanding their needs helps you identify the wireless plan that's just right for them. We believe providing service that exceeds our customers' expectations is as important as attracting new customers. And, ensuring our customers are paired with products and services that best match their needs is our priority.
As a sales associate, you'll have all the tools you need from day one to effectively represent us in the marketplace. You'll also have the training and support you need to move your career forward. We're growing and adding associates to the family each and every day, and need leaders that can bring out the best in others.

You'll work in an honest, ethical and supportive environment that empowers you to consistently deliver on your promise. And, you'll work with passionate, motivated people just like you who love where they work and are eager to provide a level of customer service "beyond the call." Learn about the variety of opportunities available both full- and part-time, including retail wireless consultants, store managers, sales managers, and cashier greeters.
"I have the freedom to assist customers as I feel necessary to resolve any issue that may arise. This empowerment is truly exciting, as customers are relieved when they come in with a problem and it is resolved before they leave the store."
Careers In Engineering and Network Operations
Say hello to the "eyes and ears of the network." Our team is actively engaged in building and upgrading towers, monitoring and securing data—anything and everything it takes to keep a lifeline between customers and the people important to them. That means when there's a problem—whether it's a dropped call or severe weather conditions—we are there to fix it quickly. We know our customers are counting on us.
Ensuring customer satisfaction is what we do. That's why we're continuously improving our technology, balancing individual goals with teamwork to make sure that our wireless services run smoothly and that we have the technologies and services our customers want.
We also approach development projects differently than most technology companies. Before a product is in the hands of our customers, we consult with every associated area of our organization, including external industry experts, to make sure that it works flawlessly, every time. We also spend more time out in the field maintaining our network, ensuring that our coverage is even and consistent throughout our footprint. Because, in every decision we make and everything we do, the customer comes first. That's why we make sure that the technology solutions that we implement will enhance their experience.
As part of our Engineering and Network Operations team, you'll enjoy the challenge of working with a growing technology. You'll work independently along with associates who count on you to do your job. We'll provide you with many opportunities to develop the knowledge and leadership skills you'll need to build the career you want. And, you'll feel valued, knowing we'll look to your expertise and ideas to help us exceed our customers' expectations, today and in the future.
"I am proud to drive through the town I serve in a company pickup. I consider the six members of my team my family. I just can't put it all down here about my strong feelings about working for U.S. Cellular®. I have grown so much as a person working here."
Careers In Professional Operations Support
You're one of those people that goes the extra mile to make things happen. That's what makes you such a great fit for our Dynamic Organization. Without professionals like you at our regional support offices—and throughout our organization—we couldn't do what we do.
We're looking for strong, independent individuals...people willing to roll up their sleeves, and take their own initiative to create new paths for our success. Whether your role involves driving an enterprise-wide initiative or developing the next strategy to enhance our business results, we strongly believe that the future growth of our organization depends on you. That's why we'll empower you with the tools and freedom to take new approaches and try new ideas. And, we'll stand behind you every step of the way in your efforts to make our customer service better and our organization stronger.

It's what makes working in our Dynamic Organization different.
We'll be committed to helping you succeed. You'll have the support of a strong and growing organization—and an entire family of associates—that recognizes and respects your contributions, stands behind your work, and genuinely supports your growth. We believe in continuous learning, and offer training programs that cover everything from leadership development to diversity and inclusion.
