    There is a 401K but you don't make enough money for it to be significant.

    Insurance is over 300.00/month. No one can afford that on minimum wage.

    They have no one to help explain the benefits they offer it's typically a packet you receive in the mail and it's up to you to decide which option fits you with basically no time to decide.
