It seems T-Mobile may be short on employees in some areas, because it appears they are offering some employees money to relocate around the country.

As shown in documents shared with The T-Mo Report, embedded below, T-Mobile is offering a “Relocation-Based Transfer Incentive” to RAMs (Retail Associate Managers) and above.

The documents show that employees can get anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000 for moving to another store to fill staffing shortages in both new and existing markets. The amounts vary depending on distance moved.

The employees will also receive a one-time bonus amount depending on the “tier” of store they move to, as long as the move is greater than 50 miles away. This bonus ranges from $5,000 to $25,000. That means an employee that moves over 2,000 miles to a tier 1 store will receive $35,000 in relocation assistance.

Included in the second document is a link to a spreadsheet for employees to see available associate manager and store manager positions throughout the company. The list is apparently being kept updated over time for employees. Unfortunately, standard Mobile Expert roles are unable to take advantage of the temporary transfer incentive.

Staffing issues have been rampant in every industry since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Businesses across the country are reducing hours as they find it hard to fill positions. T-Mobile likely has a surplus of upper staff in some areas of the country and a lack of staff in others, necessitating the relocation incentive.

T-Mobile recently increased their minimum wage to $20 for all positions, likely in an attempt to attract workers. This latest move is yet another incentive to try and get a good balance of workers in all their locations.

The offer is only available for the first quarter of 2022. Employees who are interested should reach out to their District Managers for available opportunities.
