DAVENPORT, Iowa —AT&T announced Thursday, April 5 that the company plans to hire a total of 20,000 veterans by 2020, doubling its earlier commitment. In 2013, AT&T had announced it would hire 10,000 veterans within five years. That goal was met by the end of 2015.

“Veterans’ leadership, integrity and commitment to service make them outstanding employees,” said Randall Stephenson, chairman and CEO.

AT&T was one of 50 businesses at today’s White House Joining Forces event in Washington, D.C. that have become dedicated to hiring and training veterans and military spouses.

AT&T’s call center in Davenport employs more than 300 representatives and pays $10.98-$16.09 per hour, depending on experience and education.
