    Best thing is that it technically met the requirements of OBAMA CARE. Bad news is there was hardly any benefits and high deductible.

    The coverage is very expensive, I have never had it but have looked at all the packages and I could never afford them. I have heard that it is good coverage from other people.

    401k and the employee assistance program (EAP) are the only benefits that I am aware of. Other than that, I am not sure what is (and isn't) offered).

    No perks. Benefits unknown. They don't really tell you what their benefits are when you are hired. Heard it was expensive for making only 7.75 per hour.
