Intern Reviews


  • “The culture at UScellular was amazing. Everyone is super kind and is always willing to help others and answer any questions I may have.”
  • “The culture was one of inclusiveness and collaboration. I always felt welcome at work events. I was also satisfied with the level of flexibility my leader afforded me with my hours. There were a couple of times when I requested time away from the office on a weekday and said I'd make up the hours through an irregular work schedule. My leader was very accommodating and approved my requests.”
  • “Throughout my internship, I noticed how welcoming and friendly the employees are at US Cellular. Everyone was very eager to help and made sure that I received assistance whenever I needed it. I worked 40 hours a week and found a good balance with this schedule. I had enough work to fill each day and truly enjoyed the projects I was assigned.”
  • “Quality of Life at this company is incredible. I don't know if this sort of work culture even exists in other corporations. Hours are very lenient as long as you get your work done. There is a maximum, not a minimum. Of course, interns are paid hourly so it is in your interest to work eight-hour days. Work-life balance is extremely manageable.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “I had two behavioral interviews. My interactions with my interviewer and manager were pleasant. The process is not that selective. The company looked for those with outgoing personalities who would uphold the D.O. company culture.”
  • “The interview felt very personal and casual. It gave me a good interpretation of how the company culture would be.”
  • “The interview process was super easy and felt more like a conversation than an interview.”
  • “US Cellular was very good with letting me know how the process was going while I was interviewing for the role. They had reached out to me on numerous occasions asking for additional information as well as giving me timelines for what I could expect next. This was very beneficial and provided a great experience. The interview questions also contained topics in which I had studied in school, so there were no issues there.”
