Job assignment locations vary, and final decisions are made based on the needs of the business and the developmental opportunity for each individual. If a move is required, AT&T offers a robust relocation benefit package.

  5. What types of career options can I look forward to upon completion of the Leadership Development Program?

  7. How will my performance be evaluated?

    Participants are formally evaluated by their supervisor three times during their initial assignment, and twice during each of their following assignments. Performance is measured in two facets: what was achieved (results) and how these results were achieved (leadership). Participants also receive feedback from the Leadership Development Program staff and other mentors.

    AT&T is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive full and fair consideration for employment.

  8. How are job rotations assigned?

    Job rotations will be selected for participants based on their previous experience, with an emphasis on providing opportunities to continue to enhance leadership skills and gain exposure to growth areas of the business.
