    Life resources would give you access to independent and confidential resources and help support personal, financial, and legal issues.

    You have to choose yearly between major medical and vision/dental. They are slow to pay out on both. You earn a pension, but it's very small. If you take maternity or medical leave, expect to be paid after you return to work. CareFund does not go to regular employees just management and corporate.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Pharmacy Technician in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania

    Health insurance is pretty decent. The other resources that are available are amazing. You can call their 1800 number for employees about basically anything troubling ranging from debt, mental health issues, loss and grief therapy, etc. They make sure all employees have what they need to be the best workers.

    They don't offer any benefits to employees unless you work over 32hoirs and you have to wait for the 2 times a year they have open enrollment

    You earn a good amount of vacation time. It increases the longer you work.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Produce Clerk in Cleveland, Ohio

    Offers wide array of medical coverages and rates. Fairly limited especially based on the lower pay scale, although if you are relying solely on this wage you may struggle to begin with and insurance is a necessity in the U.S

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    I work part-time and the best benefit is that they're pretty good about giving you time off if you ask for it ahead of time. They've never failed to give me the days off that I asked for. Also even as a part-timer, I was able to build a 401(k) and have the company match as well. Other than that though, the rest of the the usual benefits (PTO, health insurance, vacation, etc.) go to employees who are full-time.
