Good Benefits Package for Singles and Families.
The benefit package is terrific and consists of paid holidays, dental, vision and various other supplemental packages.
Medical and dental insurance, PTO, sick leave, retirement package, FRS, deferred compensation, EAP program, mentoring program.
For full time employees the benefits are nice. I was not a full time employee. They tried to work me to the legal maximum hours without benefits of any kind. It was horrible.
benefits package is best incentive offered by the Department. It is superior to any offered in private sector. Health insurance premium for families is lowest available. No 3 month or 1 year waiting period. Can choose between pension fund (available after 8 years employment) or investment fund (available after 1 year employment).
Benefits are the best thing about working for the State. 2 Weeks insurance, every holiday off, sometimes get christmas eve off.
I appreciate that many options for saving, health, and other programs are available with salary deduction. I would like a 401K plan instead of a 401K-like plan.
Best thing: full benefits first day
