    StarStarStarStarStar Current Shift Leader in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

    All the usual (health, 401k, discounts, and vacation) but the best is the profit based bonuses. They are paid out every quarter. Some are low ($25) but some are high ($500)

    Great health insurance coverage for employee and dependents, paid holidays and vacation time. But quarterly bonuses, unfortunately, are fewer and smaller every year.

    Generous package, but it gets smaller every year.

    Remarkably good benefits for retail. The good standard insurance plan is only about $20 biweekly for a single person. Vision benefits good. Vacation and sick time accruals are generous. 401k with 5% match. I averaged about $700-800 of bonuses per year.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Book Seller I in Mentor, Ohio

    When I worked there, they paid the employee health insurance premiums (including dental and vision) and had 401K with match. They also had quarterly profit-sharing bonuses, a Christmas bonus, annual pay increases with review, monthly sick, holiday, and annual days accrued which allowed for paid vacations and paid sick leave, they were closed on Christmas and Thanksgiving to give us time with our families, they offered incentives for flu vaccines, and of course the generous employee discount on books. I absolutely loved working for this company and I dearly miss it.

    They give you a 401k which they will match all contributions to up to a certain point. If you're not paying attention, this can get massive. I had full health/vision/dental by default. I've heard many benefits have been slashed in the last year or so, so I'm not sure at their current level.

    The benefits package is comprehensive, including insurance, PTO, 401k. However, it is being reduced each year. It was once amazing, now it is just ok.

    Vacation & Time Off, Employee Discount, Opportunity to move up in the company

    The best thing about working at Half Price is the 50% off discount almost anything in the store.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Supervisor in Dallas, Texas

    The benefits package used to be pretty good. The provider they currently use is United Healthcare. I believe they are currently changing many of the benefits, especially to those with more than one person on the health plan. In addition, I think they are raising the rates in this next cycle as well.
