 U.S. Benefits

For over 30 years, IGT has been the global leader in design, development, and manufacturing of computerized gaming machines and systems products. While many things make IGT an acclaimed, world-class company, it’s our employees who truly make the difference. Our success depends upon happy, productive people, so rewarding and supporting our employees is vital. Growth, stability, diversity, opportunity, challenging work, and a robust total rewards program are just the beginning of the long list of benefits at IGT.

The total rewards package offered by IGT includes much more than just your base salary – it includes health and disability benefits, retirement programs, incentive opportunities, paid time off, and sharing in the Company’s success through IGT’s Cash Sharing or Management Bonus Programs. IGT also supports work-life balance and wellness programs, such as the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), the Healthy Tracks Wellness Program, free health screenings – and more.

Health, Dental & Vision Plans

We have a superb and affordable Employee Benefits Program. The Company pays for the vast majority of your health care costs (Medical, Prescription Drug, Dental and Vision Plans). Benefits begin on the first day of your employment.

Adoption Assistance

IGT provides financial reimbursement for eligible adoption expenses incurred in excess of the IRS credit, up to a maximum of $7,000 per child following the adoption.

Dependent Scholarship Program

This program has been designed to assist employees' dependent children and dependent grandchildren who plan to continue education in an accredited college or a vocational school program. Under this program, up to 25 non-renewable scholarship awards will be granted each year.

Employee Assistance Plan

The Employee Assistance Plan is provided by IGT for employees and their families. This national program provides information, referrals, and short-term counseling for problems affecting either your work or personal life on a strictly confidential basis. As a member, employees have access to assistance from highly experienced counselors 24 hours per day, 365 days a year.

Onsite Daycare Facility

The Company provides onsite daycare (Reno) and subsidizes the cost to employees. Employees with children, from 6 weeks to 12 years of age, have found this to be a wonderful benefit.

401(k) Plan

Saving money is important and, preparing for retirement is essential. Contributing to the 401(k) part of the Plan provides you with an immediate and long-lasting advantage. Employees can contribute to their 401(k) account on a tax-deferred basis after having completed 30 days of employment. The Company supports employees' participation through a matching formula.

  • Employee contributions: 100% fully vested
  • Company matching contributions: 100% immediate vesting

Profit Sharing Plan

Profit Sharing expresses the value we place in employees. Based on profits, the Company has the discretion to make an annual contribution to an employee's 401(k)/Profit Sharing account. This contribution is based on business unit profitability and vests over time, and the percentage is allocated evenly among all employees.

Cash Sharing

As with Profit Sharing, a portion of the profits are returned to employees annually in cash. Taken with the 401(k) and Profit Sharing Plan contribution, IGT dramatically demonstrates its beliefs that people make the difference.

Employee Stock Purchase

Employees can participate in the growth of the Company through the Employee Stock Purchase Plan. The purchase price is determined by taking a 5% discount from the fair market value (closing price) of a share of IGT stock as of the last day of the Plan Year.

Employee Referral Program

Employees are encouraged to participate in IGT's referral bonus programs by recommending qualified candidates for positions open within the Company. Current IGT employees who have referred applicants (who are subsequently hired to fill the eligible positions) will receive the appropriate referral bonus.

Educational 529 Plan

The Educational 529 Plan is provided to employees as means to help them save for their children's or grandchildren's college education in a flexible and affordable manner. The Plan allows employees to make post-tax contributions, while deferring federal income tax on earnings.

    This was the toughest interview that I had ever experienced. It was a behavior based interview that was very intense. It took HR months to contact me for the first and then again for the second interview. The process was long!
