    Contribution toward retirement and medical benefits are great!

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Allendale, Michigan

    There really aren't any benefits for students at all. No better parking, no on campus discounts, but it is a solid student job.

    The benefits were good but not too bad.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Grand Rapids, Michigan

    As a recent college grad, I wasn't sure what to expect or do with my benefits package. Luckily, the Human Resources department was very helpful in making the transition into the workplace easy and understandable.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Allendale, Michigan

    Excellent benefit package for administrative staff, including generous vacation time, sick time and retirement contributions.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former managing director in Grand Rapids, Michigan

    No benefits package exists for this position. Max out at 20 hours for this student position and are prohibited from working any more than that.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Custodian in Allendale, Michigan

    The best thing is it is yours from day one, there is no wait for the health insurance, (the sick and vacation time is not available for 6 months, as you build it up) Overtime is voluntary and not oppressive. But on the downside they have a 6 month probationary period that you have to tiptoe through.

    High deductible health plan offered with HSA with no employee premium contribution required. Health care option not available for part time faculty.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Grounds Crew in Allendale, Michigan

    I worked for the Golf course while attending school. The boss was great and the crew were very understanding with my class schedule. The work was fun and the golf was free for all of the employees of the course

    Flexible hours when needed. Certain times of year are very demanding and require more than 40 hours.
