MONTGOMERY, Ala., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To support the company's rapid growth, Verizon Wireless is looking to hire more than 400 full-time employees in Alabama this year. More than three hundred of the available positions are for customer service-related opportunities at the Verizon Wireless state headquarters located in Huntsville.

The company is also hiring in Birmingham and Dothan, mostly in retail sales. Interested candidates may apply online by visiting Verizon.com/jobs.

"Today's announcement that Verizon will create over 400 jobs in Alabama is a testament to the strength of the pro-business climate we have worked hard to create in Alabama," Governor Robert Bentley said. "When successful companies are able to expand and create more jobs, Alabamians have an opportunity for a better future. Alabama's relationship with Verizon is strong, and I look forward to a continued partnership with the company."

Verizon offers industry-leading benefits  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 6 percent of an employee's salary contribution.

"The wireless industry has been one of the fastest growing markets across the globe. With both the recent RootMetrics and J.D. Power studies confirming Verizon Wireless as the top performing wireless company in Alabama, serving our customers with the nation's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network, we are only going to see our business expand. Consumers will continue to rely heavily on their tablets, smartphones and other wireless offerings," said Jonathan LeCompte, president of the Georgia/ Alabama region for Verizon Wireless. "At Verizon, we know the incredible talent available throughout the state of Alabama and we are committed to offering a thriving work environment in which employees can learn, grow and use their talents and skills to contribute to the success of our dynamic business."  

Verizon actively recruits military veterans  "Veterans return home every day and have to begin new lives as civilians," said Beverly Mullins, executive director – Human Resources, Verizon Wireless. "Verizon recruiters are trained to understand the value of a candidate's military experience. We believe the tangible and intangible skills add value to our company and help a veteran to thrive in a team environment like ours."
