Employee Comments

    Current Senior Programmer Analyst in Bentonville, Arkansas

    The annual bonus based on overall company performance can easily push the yearly compensation above the average (accounting for cost of living which is very low in Bentonville). The yearly equity distribution in company stock of $5,500 (more for higher paybands) vesting 50% after 3 years and 100% after 6 years is also a great addition to my retirement account. Finally the company will match 401k contributions up to 6% and matches 15% of company stock purchases (through payroll deduction) of the first $1,800 (yearly maximum company contribution of $270). The only component of the benefits package which could improve is the health plan but it is subsidized by the company so the monthly costs are significantly lower than what you'd find on the individual marketplace.

    Probably the best thing about the benefits package is that its fairly inexpensive. The vision insurance is little over a dollar from each check, health insurance is around $20, and so on. The 401k plan is extensive as well.

    Best is they match your 401k dollar for dollar. Worst is the insurance they recently switched to. They wanted me to pay a premium of $300 out of my $500 check for insurance. Nuts.

    No 401k for the first year, but you can get health insurance with no co-pay

    It was great for my family.

    Store Manager bonus potential was the best thing.

    Former Department Manager in Miramar, Florida

    The lower levels of management as well as the team employees worked well alongside each other, especially the night shift. However upper management always found fault in everything that was done.The benefits package was very expensive and was approximately 1/2 of the paycheck. I did love my co workers and overall did enjoy my time with the company even though the pay was much less than acceptable, but when you need a job..

    No benefits really and what little you can receive is horrible insurance

    Former Photo Sales Associate in Kansas City, Missouri

    The best options are horrible. They don't pay much, and if you actually need to use the insurance, you can potentially be set back thousands of dollars. Even my primary care doctor visits and simple lab work were expensive. Also, I needed some x-rays and an MRI. The prescreener contacted to make sure I was covered advised I would only have to pay $400, so I payed it. Then I was billed close to $3k.

    The 401k however is company match and that is one of the better benefits offered.
