    StarStarStarStarStar Former Seasonal Laborer in Seattle, Washington State

    For permanent employees the benefits are good. This is strictly for a seasonal job where only minimal benefits are offered. If you are a returning seasonal employee, you also get an annual bump in pay added to your hourly; it think it's around an added 5% per year you return.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current ASA in Seattle, Washington State

    The City offers good benefits, including health insurance, paid time off, and retirement. They have a fantastic PPL & PFL benefits but they do not extend those to siblings which is harmful to families who do not have parents or spouses.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Seattle, Washington State

    There is a pension here which in some cases you can opt whether or not to join. The time off benefit is generous. There is no matching for the 401k. Health insurance is probably no better or worse than the average of what you can find out there

    Great benefits no matter where you work, but different sections have different benefits depending on what their guild has negotiated.
