Employee Comments

  • Dec 18, 2014
    Current Engineer in Hoffman Estates, Illinois

    Nothing stands out in either direction

  • Dec 14, 2014
    Current Employee in Hickory, North Carolina

    Decent 401k, good work/life balance, great discounts for associates.

  • Dec 12, 2014
    Former Employee in Birmingham, Alabama

    Some of the best benefits you will find.

  • Dec 5, 2014
    Current Principal Enginner in Hoffman Estates, Illinois

    No 401K matching and medical benefits costs are too high

  • Dec 11, 2014
    Current Employee in Kingston, New Hampshire

    Every year the health plan cost keeps going up along with the deductibles and copays. It may only be a few dollars more per pay period but combined with the added deductibles it adds up to a few hundred dollars more for a family plan.

    Former pre-production associate manager in New York, New York State

    employee discount on merchandise is 10% only and you can't combine the promos.

  • Dec 9, 2014
    Current Sales Consultant in Winston-Salem, North Carolina

    benifits are getting less and less. 401 no longer has any match. health benifits are getting more expensive. sick time is down to 4 days a year.

    Current Divisional Vice President in Chicago, Illinois

    Telecommuting (usually 1 day per week) from the home office (Hoffman Estates) is actually a great perk and one that most people take advantage of. More than 1 day depends on your specific job and position.
    Another great perk is summer hours between Memorial Day and Labor Day --- you can work extra hours during the week and then take 1/2 day on Friday.
    Health insurance is very expensive and not competitive; SHC has not paid any 401K match for a number of years.

    Former Employee in Arlington, Virginia

    You don't get any benefits as a part timer. As a full timer the cost is outrageous. Its better to buy your own insurance.

    Former Consultative Sales Lead in Beaumont, Texas

    Very expensive. Cannot afford with the low wages the company pays
