The company is actively hiring to fill more than 300 positions to fuel its continued growth

LAUREL, Md., March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Verizon Wireless announced plans to add more than 300 full-time positions in retail and customer care in Maryland, DC, and Virginia. Interested candidates may apply online by visiting the Verizon Wireless website at www.vzwcareers.com.

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.

Verizon, which employs more than 3,400 employees in the Maryland/DC/Virginia region, offers tuition reimbursement, adoption assistance and bonuses. The company promotes work/life balance by offering lactation rooms for new mothers, on-site college courses, education study rooms, dining facilities and state-of-the-art fitness centers staffed with personal trainers at its regional headquarters building located in Laurel, Maryland, and at its customer care center in Hanover, Maryland.

Verizon Wireless has consistently been singled out for its commitment to work-life balance and industry-leading benefits.  For 13 consecutive years, Verizon Wireless has been named one of the best companies for working moms by Working Mother and Computer World lists Verizon Wireless as one of the "100 Best Places to Work in IT." Regionally, the company has been recognized as a "Best Place to Work" by Baltimore Magazine and the Alliance for Workplace Excellence.

"Verizon Wireless is a growing company in a dynamic and innovative industry, and we're seeking motivated and talented professionals to join our retail sales and customer care teams here in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC region," said Marquett Smith, regional president.  "We are committed to offering our employees competitive salaries, industry-leading benefits, and the resources needed to help them grow their careers and enjoy a positive work-life balance."

Verizon Wireless actively recruits military veterans. "Veterans return home every day and have to begin new lives as civilians," said Michele Brookshire of Verizon's Talent Acquisitions Team. "Verizon recruiters are trained to understand the value of a candidate's military experience. We believe those sometimes intangible skills add value to our company and help a veteran to thrive in a team environment like ours."
