    Regular 401k, they only match if you are an Engineer

    Pays up to 4%, Berkshire Hathaway stock options a big plus.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former MOW in Needles, California

    Good set up but could have matched more for the guys that were never home with their families

  • Nov 04, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Trainmaster in Chicago, Illinois

    This is one of the best things out there

    Their program is a little above average.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Electronics Technician II in Chicago, Illinois

    This is only good for exempt employees. Scheduled employees get no matching, exempt gets up to 6%

  • Jan 11, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former National accounts sales manager in Houston, Texas

    Great matching and provided investment classes for all

    401k for hourly employees is not good at all, might as well just get a regular IRA. The company does not match your contribution at all.

    I forget exactly what they match but it was roughly 5%, however you have to wait for a year before you get to contribute.

    401k plans are a joke with this company
