    Vacation and Time off are very restricted

    Standard benefits are average to below average (e.g., health insurance, 401k match). Best perks by far are the gear discounts, gold passes, flexible time off, and emphasis on team / company bonding activities. However, the combination of the lack of ability to influence the performance bonus as an individual contributor with the fact that it is VERY small was very discouraging.

    The Benefits were ok. There was a 401k match that they offered that was nice. Health insurance was reasonably priced. The best benefit they offered was the gear discount but they require you to review the gear you purchased or they would shut your discount off.

    The benefits at are FANTASTIC! The pay is rough honestly. But, I've had 3 jobs since and I wish I had stayed at Backcountry just for the insurance and the benefits.

    401k is matched at 80% (up to 5% of gross income) There is no option to divest 401k from unethical companies

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Salt Lake City, Utah

    401k match- 100% of first 3%, 50% of next 2%, standard medical dental & vision. 6 paid holidays and flexible time off if your work is done/there is someone else to cover while you're out.

    The Health insurance is really good if you have a major accident. You pay minimal out of pocket, but there are always the hidden fees until you get to your deductible.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Seasonal Gearhead in West Valley City, Utah

    I did not receive any benefits, health insurance, 401k, or vacation because i was a seasonal employee for the busy winter season
