    “They give you money on your app every paycheck but can only be used for food and drink while working or you have to pay taxes on it I always worked...”

    I've read through the past review and some are very accurate. Benefits are getting better, not the best but very good for a smaller business. I do have the health insurance and don't really have any complaints about it. They offer a couple packages for different needs, I am in the "I have to have health insurance but want to spend the least amount of money for it because I never go to the doctor. " 401k - unfortunately I have no information to give about this because I don't have it. Vacation and time off - When it comes to management in the cafes and office staff, I understand that vacation time is pretty nice. I can't remember the details but you are automatically give a few paid days to start and the longer you work the more paid vacation you get, like most companies. I know the vacation does role over until March of the following year. When it comes to Shift Supervisors (team leaders) and baristas (mixologist) the paid vacation is not so great. You are allowed a few days of paid vacation but can only take your vacation if the manager of the store approves. Like every company I've worked at before, you do have to get your approval 2 weeks before taking vacation or you are responsible for getting the shift covered. For the most part, managers do approve you for vacation. As a team leader and mixologist you do HAVE to work 2 of the 3 holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years) unless you get special permission from your manager or if a fellow team member takes your shifts. So for those members that are not from Chicago, become friends with your Chicagoan baristas and get them to work your holidays if you want to go home. Also, as soon as may roles around I ask off for the holiday I want. As for HR reviews on here, that is also much better. The person in HR is very new to the job/role but she does a great job and helps out as fast as she can. She is learning and going to seminars, etc to become better. Once again, it is a growing company so there is only one person doing this job and she is over see New York as well as Chicago. Performance bonuses for managers and office staff. Revenue compensation sharing for non salary employees, which means if your store beats their sales goal then you get a percentage of the amount the store beat and it is split between all the employee HOURS.

    Cost is way too expensive for a family or individual.

    Health insurance is a lot better. You have time off but can't really use it.

    The worst thing about the benefits package was that you could never reach HR to discuss anything. Always a voicemail.

    There was a certain amount of Argo Dollars you were given per pay period/month that you could use to purchase anything in the store, be in the drinks or merchandise offered.

    The benefits for working at Argo are great but are expensive and definitely geared towards upper management and home office workers and not towards cafe employees.

    Unless you meet ridiculous quotas you won't receive a bonus no matter how many hours you put in or how hard you work
