It was a great benefits package. Health Insurance was desirable. Retirement and pension as well.
Very low health care premiums
Nice Company to work with
A market from when employees buy their own coverage.Two weeks paid leave and two weeks sick per year. leave Only thing provided that does not come from paycheck is $25,000 life insurance and a prescription drug plan.
Health insurance package is very good and very inexpensive. I am not eligible for other benefits because I am technically considered part time
There are two categories of employees: OPS and Career Service. The OPS are temporary positions and have fewer to no benefits than Career Service, which are salaried and receive great benefits. As an OPS employee, I qualify for health insurance, but do not receive any PTO, sick leave, nor federal holiday pay. OPS employees are hourly, and are only paid for when they are at work.
No 401k benefits offered for employees
Great benefits package really helps make up for the low salary. State negotiated rate for health insurance premiums keep it affordable and the state pays an even great portion of the premium for SES personnel. Still have paid Annual Leave and paid Sick Leave along with various paid holidays plus a Personal Day. Sick leave pool was dissolved a few years back but many generous employees will donate sick time to those in need.
Working at the Florida Department of Health you know different types of patients from different cultures and serve them as they deserve. Best 401K.
HMO/PPO insurance options, both are very reasonable qith great coverage. I selected the HMO for myself. It was $100 a month. I needed alot of coverage at the time. A MRI was $50 out of pocket. Dental allowed me a $2000 allowance for adult braces.
