The best benefit that On the Border has in my opinion is paid vacation time for employees. Granted, you must first accrue the hours, but after you earn some you can have them put on your pay check. They base the vacation pay on an average of what you make over a six month time span (this is why its a good idea to claim all of your tips). On the Border also offers health insurance, the only downside is that it can be a little pricy and, as with most places, you have to work a certain amount of hours each week to qualify. Time off is based on a first come first serve basis, but it makes it fair and it works pretty well. You can request days off with a minimum of two weeks notice. They are pretty good at making sure everyone is taken care of and have even called in employees from different stores to allow employees the days off they have requested.
Industry standard. Would be nice to see a hospitality group go above the minimum
They offered decent insurance after a year, signup was only in November which was a problem with the new health care laws. You don't get paid enough to cover it however, so you have to send in payment and they manage to lose it frequently. I worked here 7 years full-time and never saw one minute of the vacation they promise. There is no PTO. No sick days.
NO benefits for servers.
Paid vacation is the absolute best! The insurance could be better but overall it is okay. It gets the job done, just wish it were a little cheaper.
