  • Health Insurance  (9 comments)

    “The health plan changed and now the cost is $450 bi-weekly and you still have a $9000 family deductible... good luck with that.”

  • 401K Plan  (7 comments)

    “Probably the best benefit and it's only average. 50% match for the 5% employee contribution and it takes 2 years to become vested. The pension...”

    Benefits were typical of Fortune 500 company. Overall benefits were good from a single, male perspective but not sure how I would feel with a family.

    One good thing is that they finally added vision insurance. The worst things about the benefits: Only two health insurance plan options, lowest deductible is $1500. 6 holidays per year. 2 weeks PTO per year. Once you've been employed for 3 years, you get 3 weeks PTO per year. No working remote. No learning path or financial coverage for education pursuit.

    Everything is expensive. Health insurance is high deductible and high cost. I don't think the company contributes anything and if they do, we are getting robbed. Life insurance is high, as well. It was cheaper to get it on my own. 401K matching takes time to get vested and the pension no longer exists. The Little Blue Book that Anixter was built on and that the company still claims as the foundation of our business has taken an extreme backseat to the corporate way of life. It's to be expected, so don't expect Anixter to provide anything other than high cost benefits. Be sure to negotiate that into your salary.

    401k - matches 50% up to 5% (2.5% of salary). Health insurance more expensive than average and no vision during my employment there. Time off is very stingy; less than 5 days your first year of employment, then 10 days/year. 3 weeks after 3 years. This can be negotiated during the hiring process, though, but very few know/do this. Very little flex time options, but this may vary by manager. Holidays are very limited (e.g., Christmas Eve and day after Thanksgiving aren't considered holidays). Work from home permitted for bad weather, but not offered on a set schedule. Tuition assistance offered for undergraduate courses but not graduate studies. Jeans only permitted on Fridays.

    Good comprehensive benefits package. Rates are very good because of company negotiated rates and size of the company.
