Cox Enterprises – Why Work With Us?


“We invited a diverse mix of employees from across the whole company to join in to share their stories about what makes Cox special. There were many. But what tied them together is the belief that we’re part of something more than just a paycheck. We’re part of something better. We’re a collection of people from around the world with varied backgrounds, ethnicities, skills and talents. Although we each have different roles and responsibilities, we realized we share a common purpose at work, which is to Empower People Today to Build a Better Future for the Next Generation.” – Cox Enterprises President and CEO Alex Taylor

60,000 EMPLOYEES, ONE GOAL: LEAVE THE WORLD BETTER THAN WE FOUND IT

When it comes to helping others, our actions speak volumes.  At Cox, giving back is a vital part of our culture. For more than 100 years, Cox Enterprises has been guided by a simple belief: Do the right thing for our employees, our customers and our communities.  Every year, ‘Team Cox volunteers’ rack up tens of thousands of volunteer hours. We believe in rolling up our sleeves and getting to work in the communities we serve and call home.

Our contributions can be seen in many ways, and these are just some of our efforts to give back.

  • Team Cox Ocean Cleanup with Ocean Conservancy https://vimeo.com/205254948
  • Cox Enterprises partnership with KaBOOM! to build playgrounds at Genesis Shelter and Legacy Housing’s Shamrock Gardens
  • Cox and The James M. Cox Foundation have given more than $2 million to Habitat for Humanity over the past 25 years. Team Cox volunteers, 600+ employees build homes in southwest Atlanta.
  • Cox employees work with American Rivers to remove more than 16 tons of waste and debris from rivers and riverbanks in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Driving Positive Environmental Change

Driving positive environmental change — inside our company and within the communities we serve — is one of the most important things we do.

In 2007, we launched our national sustainability program, Cox Conserves, and over the past decade we’ve made meaningful progress in our journey to become a more sustainable company.

Our Cox Conserves goals are to send zero waste to landfill by 2024, and to be carbon and water neutral by 2044. With more than $100 million invested in sustainability and conservation projects, we’re on track to meet our aggressive Cox Conserves goals.

We focus on alternative energy, community engagement, employee engagement, energy conservation, waste diversion and recycling, and water conservation.

We operate our businesses in ways that reduce our impact, and we encourage our employees, customers, suppliers and partners to do the same.

Our Approach

Building a diverse and inclusive workplace is a vital business imperative at Cox — and the right thing to do to reflect the world in which we live. Diversity nourishes engagement and respect among our employees, our communities, and the people and businesses we serve. Moving toward a more diverse and inclusive workplace leads to a richer, more creative and team-oriented work environment, and helps us build strong relationships within our communities.

At Cox, one of our guiding principles is to bring out the best in everyone; this is felt through our diversity councils, roundtable discussions and grassroots support of 15 Employee Resource Group chapters across the globe. We provide team members opportunities to engage locally and embrace similarities and differences of people, culture and ideas.

More Than One

It often takes more than one individual or one company to make lasting change. We are dedicated to promoting diversity and advocating for the needs of minorities within the communities we serve. To do that, we support like-minded national and local organizations, whether through employee volunteering, corporate and individual giving and sponsorships or by offering in-kind services. Together, our work impacts our communities for the greater good.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cox Enterprises (Atlanta, GA) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Received an invitation to schedule an interview with a recruiter. Conducted 15-minute interview. Invited to the next interview a week later. Conducted 30 minute interview with a manager that you are going to work for. Received an offer letter 2 days after the 2nd interview. They want to hire who are motivated and determined, and who carries similar values with them. Research the companies and try to implement their missions to your resume and answers during interview. Make sure to prepare answers to expected questions and practice with your friends. Good luck on your interview! :)
