It Starts With Bringing Us Closer to Our Community

At Cox, we believe in doing the right thing. Our seven regional Diversity & Inclusion Councils focus on four pillars: People, Customers, Community and Suppliers. Our regional councils devised creative strategies to recruit women in nontraditional roles, strengthen local partnerships, identify micro-community segments for growth, and raise awareness for Cox’s Connect2Compete program, which offers low-cost internet services to families that have a K-12 student and receive government assistance.

We understand the importance of serving the communities in which our employees and customers live and work. For us, philanthropy is more than a buzzword – it’s a mission and an opportunity to use our time, talent and technology in ways that strengthen cities, businesses and future generations. We strive to develop and support various initiatives that impact people’s lives, with a critical focus on youth and education, diversity and environmental issues.

  • Cox Communications and Connect2Compete
    Since beginning the program in 2012, more than a quarter-million individuals have been connected to the Internet through Cox Connect2Compete program, a partnership with EveryoneOn. We work in the communities we serve to provide low-cost Internet and devices to low-income students and their families that will ensure all students have access to the tools and technology they need to succeed in the classroom and their careers.

We are Family

    I worked at Cox Communications full-time (More than 5 years)


    Makes the employee feel included in the direction of the company. To be such a big company you really feel like family. Company has a clear vision and path to get there. Liked my job so much that I woke up before my clock went off usually ready to start the day.


    None that I can think of.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cox Communications (Athens, GA) in March 2018.


    Very straightforward, after applying I received an email requesting to interview a couple of weeks after. My interview was like a conversation, not a high-stress situation. The recruiter and my interviewer were very responsive in answering my questions through email/phone.
