    Standart benefit package . Each hour that you work over normal 40 hours a week would be paid in One-and-a-half rate.

    Health insurance for hourly workers is about 1/3 of entire check bi weekly. Days off are paid if you have vacation available. Sick time is also paid up to 48 hours.

    Starting a 401K plan while young will help you when you're older but to my knowledge Ghirardelli does not provide this.

    Test all the chocolates, one free menu item per shift, fun environment, generous 401k, half off for employees when purchasing

    Amazingly generous PTO and paid holiday policy. Health care choices are very limited. They don't offer Kaiser so going back to a PPO plan felt like going back to the dark ages. The salaries are OK. Close to market rate but I was disappointed that they wouldn't negotiate on salary. They just flat out said "no", which really surprised me. The 401K plan is outstanding. Great fund choices and generous company match. The company is very generous with things like Christmas parties, team lunches and other small perks, which is a nice touch.

    Since we are in a union, we get raises every year. After the first year of employment we get one week of vacation and after 3 years it goes up to 2 weeks every year. Also, we get a floating holiday every year. One downside is that there is union fees and sometimes the union cannot even help us when we complain about unfairness that happens during our employment.

    Received 50% off all chocolate and fountain desserts at any Ghirardelli location. Family members also received a discount if they mentioned that you ( a family member) worked at a store.
