    The benefits are adequate - neither lacking nor superlative.

    Paid time off wasn't a lot for a new employee, but it was better than not having any. The cell plan discount was a nice extra as well.

    Even if you only need 30 minutes off, they generally make you use your paid time off. Very hard to get unpaid time off. Vacation days are wasted by errands that a normal job would let you have a hour here or there off for.

    I have not yet discussed the benefits but the pay is pretty good

    The benefits package is excellent. You get medical,dental,and vision plans.That is about all I can say about the subject.

    Current Employee in Des Moines, Iowa

    Good health benefits and paid time off schedules once regular employee. Employer match for government style pension plan not 401(k). Gaining benefits and better time off is only a matter of time served. No merit-based bonuses in union based jobs.

    You have to use your own vehicle, but you are paid mileage that helps offset the cost of gas and maintenance costs.

    Current Employee in Syracuse, New York State

    You don't get benefits until your a regular, which takes a while to achieve.

    Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Benefits are pretty good, but not as good as they were before they cut the ability for a pension. Insurance is affordable but we are contributing more than before.

    Great company to work for
