3. Military Spouse Success Stories:
Katie Hill, Business Support Specialist
“As a military spouse, I’ve lived in three different states within the past year. Traditionally, this would have meant putting off any kind of job search, much less a career, for 12+ months. Working with Boldly has given me the opportunity to keep the job I love, the flexibility to work on my own schedule, and the confidence to know I can support my husband’s career without having to give up my own!”
Chryssy Johnson, Talent Programs Advisor Senior
“As a military spouse working from home, USAA®’s culture allows for flexible work-life balance, fostering an environment for success and growth while offering military spouse employee resource groups that cultivate appreciation and support. As I have continued my education in pursuing a Ph.D., USAA®’s comprehensive educational assistance program has supported my educational journey while offering solutions as a spouse in a mobile lifestyle. Their commitment to the military spouse and veteran communities is unwavering, and I am proud to be part of this team.”
Iris Timms, Accountant – Revenue Accountant
“I like the flexibility of working from home and the support everyone at the company provides! My husband has gone on day trips for the military during my time at Windstream, and since I am working from home, my husband can fulfill his duty worry-free knowing my job provides the flexibility needed to meet our daughter’s needs. Some appealing things about working for Windstream is the support/involvement they provide through WinVets and the flexibility they offer working from home. My advice is to investigate the support a company can provide for a military spouse. Spouses tend to get very busy when their service members are gone or on duty, and having a supportive job is very beneficial.”
