    The insurance is expensive and has high deductibles and copays.

    I didn’t have experience yet, but I would like to know how the job is and know how to do some of the work ethics of the other employees. I do have health insurance.

    401k was cool. Nice place to work. Great environment. Very friendly. Decent pay. 10/10 would recommend.

    The worst thing about this package is that it is unavailable as soon as you are no longer an employee.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Goodlettsville, Tennessee

    Average cost, out of pocket doubled last year. They just let that happen without hyping it. Good 401k and bonus structure.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Store Manager in Lakeland, Florida

    There are several options to choose from but the health insurance is not that great for the amount of the premium. Dental and vision are very affordable

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Assistant Manager in Holden, Missouri

    You don't make enough to apply for benefits. There's never enough time to use all your vacation without upsetting anyone.
