Employee Comments

    Current Employee in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    Employees who work an average of 30 hrs/wk get full medical, dental and vision as well as paid time off (about 2 wks a year if part time, 5 wks a year if full time) and the paid time off never expires. The company also contributes 5% of annual salary toward 401k and gives a check for 5% of annual salary to employees under 30 years old. Employees 30 and older get 15.4% contributed to their 401k.

    Fair benefits package.

    Medical insurance is decent. Dental has a pretty high deductible. You're given a $1000 a year to work with.

    Current Crew Member in Dallas, Texas

    $64/ month for health insurance, free vision and dental, 401k option, paid time off but you have to work an average of 30 hours a week

    Great for full time employees

    The company annually puts in 15% of the employee's annual income into a retirement account. (30 years of age and up) 18-29 receive a bonus check instead. A great Kaisen here is to let this be optional how to receive this awesome benefit- but I'm not complaining.

    Current Employee in Florham Park, New Jersey

    Now that they cut hours on purpose and count unpaid leave as hours not worked (you have to work 30 hours/week on average over a 6-month period to be eligible for benefits during enrollment), it's almost impossible to get medical benefits, although, you can still get mediocre dental and vision at no charge. You can use Absence Reserve if you get it and have enough of it accumulated to cover the time off and sick days.

    Current Crew Member in Boston, Massachusetts

    Best: 401k matching (vested), vacation time, free gym membership
    Worst: Sick and vacation time are pooled together and counted in dollars instead of hours, so it's hard to tell how much time you have, and it is locked I in at the pay rate you had when it was accrued

  • Nov 11, 2014
    Current Crew in San Diego, California

    Company pays most of health insurance premium.

    Former Part Time Crew Member in Florham Park, New Jersey

    Excellent health benefits and 20% product discount.
