If yes, when do they give to new hires? Joining Airbnb soon and need to return my company phone to my current company. Trying to see if I should buy a new phone or just use an old phone temporarily.

    We do get free phones. You can either get a corporate phone or a $65/month stipend deposited directly to your account each month tax free to pay for your own phone. I take the latter

      Really? Is this a troll?

      I'm joining soon and the recruiter didn't mention this.

      Not a troll. I joined a few months ago and this was the case for us. There is an internal phone program with a portal and everything. They tell you about it during your first week.

      Which phones are available? I'd take $65 if it's an Android or an old model iPhone

    They do in theory but the owner of the phone may not give it to you if your skin is the wrong color.

      Right, if the skin colour is wrong then you get a cordless telephone or Facebook's portal and a big grand father clock to hang over your neck.
