As a part-time employee I am unsure of the benefits package offered but I did get a 30% discount in the store and if you sold magazine subscriptions there were perks as well.
Overpriced insurance that doesn’t cover anything
The best thing is the employee discount at 30%. Another thing would be the book mark system. Book marks can be traded in for swag. Also, you are able to check books out for two weeks.
The benefits aren't too bad but they are only offered to full time workers which is only really management. Discount is 30%.
Best aspects: 401k and paid vacation which increases over time depending on how long you work for company. Worst aspect: the insurance premiums could go up at any time. It cost more for a family of two than for a family with 3 or more dependents, and there always seems to be a small detail being changed regarding the cost every year.
not a great 401K. Insurance was good.
The best thing about the benefit package hands down is the affordable, good coverage health insurance
Health, Dental, Eye, Life insurance if you are full-time (considered 32 hours or more a week, which is hard to get as a sales associate) PS. Notable positive and awesome favorable fact for Books-A-Million - before Marriage Equality, same sex couples were able to get their significant other on their insurance - props to them for that, definitely a very cool thing. Free book checkout, 30% discount at Books-A-Million/2nd & Charles/Yogurt Mountain. After 1 year you get a week vacation, 2 years = 2 weeks. 5years = 3 weeks. 7 years = 4 weeks.
You do get paid vacation once you have worked full time for 1 year. Management receives bonus' BUT if you do not hit the minimum requirements the company sets you get nothing. You can set up a 401k after 1 year at, I believe, full time.
discount on merchandise was 30%
