Best: - For single person, very cheap benefits package: less than $100/month for basic health, dental, vision, short/long term disability, accident, cash indemnity, basic term life insurance - HSA/FSA options - Choice of either pension or optional stock plan; they automatically pull 9% from each check and then contribute 14% to pension (8 years vesting) or 5% to stock plan (immediately fully vested) - Other retirement stock plans include 401k, 457b, and Roth options for both - plenty of time off: 10 weeks during summer, 2 weeks in winter, Spring break week, holidays - Best benefits plan I have seen for hourly staff Worst: - basic benefits much more expensive for families, easily at hundreds of $'s/month, I have coworkers who are benefits rich but take home very little pay - uncertainty over future of pension - some departments' staff receive no pay for holidays, while others do
State Health insurance is good
Dental is very extensive. Health insurance is alright.
Overall the benefits are not bad compared to what small companies pay. Being a single, healthy person I do not pay high benefits, although going to the doctor does ultimately cost me with the coinsurance.
The benefits are some of the best in the state and comprehensive, but still not the top coverage. I wish I had more coverage for my pregnancy and emergency room visits.
Greenville is a beautiful city and a great place to raise a family if you're a conservative, protestant Christian. There is a diverse group of students at most of the schools, and the schools are also pretty safe.
We have great health insurance, and get free dental as an option (that is only good for you if you don't have teeth issues)
As a full-time employee the district offers many different options for health and retirement plans
I work both as Bus Driver And Custodian. I get two week off at Christmas another week off at spring break than another two I can use in the summer
Expensive if covering more than just yourself. Good dental coverage.
