    Insurance benefits are offered, and are costly as they are typically through every employer

    They really do not have good benefits for the price that you have to pay. Cost for lab work is barely covered

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Utica, New York State

    Health insurance is overpriced for how little it covers. Same goes for dental. Very little vacation time offered even to full time employees.

    The sad thing is that there was no benefits package, they never worked me enough, and when I did work, the work was never good enough.

    I have not yet received my benefit package and have been with the company since August
