Verizon Wireless is using some sought-after benefits to help recruit new employees to fill 900 open positions.

Recruiters for the 79,000-employee cell phone company entice applicants by touting:

  • Health, dental and vision insurance that begins on the first day of employment
  • A 401(k) program with a 6% company match of the employee contributions
  • Annual bonuses, profit sharing, merit increases, tuition assistance, adoption assistance and access to health and wellness programs
  • Educational scholarships to employees’ children
  • An additional $1,500 in pay to bilingual employees in key sales and customer service jobs.

When Verizon Wireless employees volunteer at local nonprofits, the company kicks in a $750 cash donation. The organization also matches employee charitable donations and offers additional grants to nonprofits where employees volunteer.
