Supporting our troops and veterans

Sprint salutes the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces by offering discounts and savings through the  Sprint Works Program, and now we are doing even more to show our appreciation!

 

Fisher House Foundation Donation

Millitary Recruiting

Sprint’s mission for the veteran community is to provide rewarding and professional opportunities to veterans, members of the Reserve and National Guard, as well as active members in the military and their spouses. Highlights of our military recruiting efforts include:
  • Dedicated Sprint Recruiting Contact: A dedicated point of contact in our recruiting organization who manages our military recruitment strategy and process.
  • Postings on base: We post available positions on military bases and transition offices, military job websites and universities.
  • Sprint participation at Military Transition Workshops: Military Transition Workshops to share information with exiting military and veteran attendees. Attendees learn how military skills translate to civilian jobs, how to build their identity/personal brand and create their road to success. Attendees talk to Sprint recruiters and other companies about potential employment opportunities. Sprint has hosted two workshops and plans to host more in the future.
  • Training for recruiters to help translate skills between military and civilian positions
  • Partnership with the U.S. Army’s Partnership for Youth Success Program (PaYS)


Military Employees

Sprint has hundreds of military employees, and offers a number of benefits to assist veterans, active military personnel and their families.
  • Employees are granted time away from work with differential pay to participate in Reserve and National Guard training. When involuntarily called to active duty for Reserve and National Guard training, we pay the difference between Sprint base pay and military Reserve base pay for up to two work weeks each year.
  • Through Sprint’s Education Assistance Program employees may be eligible for tuition reimbursement.
  • Veteran-focused Employee Resource Group, VETS. VETS builds on Sprint’s strong reputation through marketing and community service outreach to veterans and military personnel, and provides its members with professional development and mentoring opportunities.
