A Message from Our CEO

Thank you for serving in our military and protecting the lives of so many around the world! All that you and your families have given is truly appreciated!

As you look for your next career opportunity, TDS just might be a great fit for you. As you learn more about us, you'll discover we have a long history of supporting our customers, associates, and the communities we serve. In order to be successful, we understand the importance of employing a work force that builds relationships, has personal accountability, is team focused, and values differences.

The characteristics of our workforce, in many ways, resemble those fully embraced by members of the military. I hope you'll agree, and consider reaching out to our recruiting team to identify the perfect fit for you.

Then, once you join TDS, you might consider joining our Patriot Associate Resource Group. This group is made up of active members of the military and those who have previously served. It also includes veterans, first responders, and civilians who have a desire to help. Organized and run independently by associates, this group actively looks for new ways to create a supportive community within our company. They also continually seek out new opportunities for involvement – in the community and at TDS. They've accomplished much in a short period of time and truly enjoy the opportunity to bring together fellow military and veteran associates.

Thank you again for considering joining the TDS team. Together, we'll go far!

Patriot Associate Resource Group

The primary goal and main effort of TDS’ Patriot group is to directly support the ethics and business goals of the company. Anecdotally, the desired end-state is to have the demographics inside the walls of TDS mirror those of the communities we serve.

As an ambassador for TDS, associate Patriots look to create and grow outreach efforts in support of military and law enforcement oriented groups (e.g., Toys for Tots, VFW, American Legion, etc.) within the local communities TDS serves. Learn more about the Patriot ARG.
