    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Dental Assistant in Tampa, Florida

    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Master Adjudicator in Tallahassee, Florida

    8 hours a month of vacation time accrued monthly, 8 hrs of sick, 1 personal holiday per year. 3% matching for retirement plan.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Environmental Specialist in Naples, Florida

    The benefits package is not great, neither is the 401 K plan. There are two types of retirement plans. For one of the plans, if you leave before 5 years, you will not receive any of the money you put in. The dental and medical plans are not good for the premium you have to pay. They offer 4 hours of sick and annual per pay period.

    Best thing is the state college Tuition Waiver program. Worst thing is no raise in over 5 years, not even COLA.

    The health insurance plan is good and inexpensive. My deductible is only $250 and we only pay $50/month.
