    great 401k match up to 4% along with immediate vesting. Discounts on BN products 30% off. Great health, dental and life insurance.

    There are no benefits other than the hourly compensation and the employee discount on items in store and online.

    Great price for single person or family! Low deductibles and co-pays!

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Regional Cafe Operations Manager in San Diego, California

    Compensation was fair and the 401k was as well. I would have liked a stock award though. My title was considered executive level but the Regional Cafe Operations team was not eligible for the program.

    Employee discounts on food is really cool since there are very few food places that are within walking distance with the time allotted for lunch.

    The health insurance is great, a comprehensive medical, dental, and vision plan that is affordable. This is a huge benefit in a compensation package.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in New Orleans, Louisiana

    They have decent benefits, health, dental, and vision discount. The costs are reasonable and there are different levels to choose.

    As far as benefits, one of my favorite things is honestly the discounts we get. It sounds shallow but it's true, the store gives fantastic discounts for its employees and the things we carry are so fun, it's hard not to buy them, regardless of price. As far as down sides go, I feel like the actual financial side of things isn't great. They give frequent raises and take good care of us, but the health benefits are pretty mediocre.

    Comparatively speaking, good health insurance at a good price, but cost has gone up and benefits have been reduced in last ten years. It takes 10 years with the company to have 4 weeks paid vacation.

    There is nothing for part-time employees other than a constantly shrinking employee discount.
