  • 401K Plan  (16 comments)

    “5% company match. A total no brainer.”

  • Health Insurance  (16 comments)

    “Premiums rose while I was there while quality dropped, but it seemed unavoidable. Was outstanding when I started.”

  • Employee Discount  (13 comments)

    “Half off used merchandise (books/DVD/CD/LP), and 20% off new merchandise. If you find something that has been thrown in the trash, you may keep it...”

    Great benefits for full time staff. Excellent health insurance, one month PAID maternity/paternity leave, copious vacation and sick time and holidays, 401(k), an employee discount that makes it very hard to hang onto your whole paycheck.

    It’s affordable and coverage is good. Covers medical, dental, and vision.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Bookseller in Frisco, Texas

    Employee discount, excellent insurance benefits, performance-based bonuses -- 4 times a year, the company splits a portion of its profits with every employee. Everyone from the CEO down to the most recently hired bookseller gets the same amount, which usually ranges from $100 to $500. There is also a Christmas bonus that I think is based on your years of service.

    Offers paid sick time but manager would penalize and withhold raises from employees who use them - even those with serious illnesses and notes from doctors. Paid vacation days were on a “first come” basis and manager would blacked out most weekends months in advance. No bonus pay for working holidays and “Profit Sharing” checks were rapidly shrinking.

    Good health insurance, dental, and vision. Not too expensive. 401k is matched at 5%. They also offer vacation, sick time, and paid time off.

    Although the benefits package is generally cheap, when it is coupled with the low wage it makes it difficult to make ends meet

    Benefits are affordable for what is offered.

    Best thing about the perks is that we have any at all. Health is good, but used to be free. Profit-based-bonus is paltry these days but is welcome when it comes. Time off isn't bad but not what it used to be. 401K is actually pretty good as they match up to 5%. Employee discount is really awesome 50% off of nearly everything.
