Discover – Why Work With Us?

Work for a company you can feel good about
. In 1986, we introduced our cash rewards credit card. It was innovative based on one simple, yet very important idea—that our customers deserve to feel appreciated; that we owe them the best experience possible. Since then, we’ve continued to be innovative—relentlessly pursuing better customer financial solutions and holding each solution up against the question: “Is this good for the customer?” If this makes sense to you—if it fits your vision about what a company should be—we want to talk to you.

Learn how Discover is strengthening our innovation with the potential for AI and machine learning in financial services from our CEO and President Roger Hochschild, clicking here.

Start enjoying great benefits Day 1 — On the day you start, you are able to take advantage of benefits like top-notch medical, dental and vision coverage, a 401(k) with a generous company match, and even tuition reimbursement and an amazing employee referral program.

At Discover, you get more than a paycheck—you get a sense of belonging. That’s because we’ve got a casual, friendly atmosphere that’s big on getting things done and making a difference for customers and communities. In fact, every year, our employees give back by donating thousands of dollars and volunteer hours helping worthy causes, including building local playgrounds. Plus, we celebrate diversity through our many Employee Resource Groups that give employees ways to support each other and promote inclusion. If this sounds like a place you’d be proud of, come talk to us.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Chicago, IL) in January 2020.


    Very timely. HR Recruiter got back to me right away to set up a phone screen. She committed to getting me an answer in a two day timeframe and she did stick to that. Very impressed with feedback and promptness.
