    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Rockford, Illinois

    PTO after 1 year (but they don't tell you that they frown upon asking for days off before then, even if you can still work 5 days/week), health, vision, dental, 401k (after 1 yr) are also offered.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Store Leader in New York, New York State

    You would receive paid vacation but because store run with almost no staff (no payroll) it was hard for management to take a vacation.

    Paid time off is great.

    Health insurance is available for all full time “partners” although the copay and deductibles are high. Also, the cost of insuring anyone but the employee is prohibitive. Adequate 401K with new enhancements coming. Only 2 paid holidays per year and zero for salaried store leaders which is ridiculously bad. Lot’s of pto after a year just good luck actually trying to use it all with DL interference telling you that you’re taking too much paid time off.

    Great 401k benefits and PTO and the healthcare options are very good if your single, once you add your family it gets quite expensive.

    I don't have any complaints about the benefits package. The insurance is very good & the amount of PTO is reasonable.

    Bringing pets to work is a huge perk, but the health care benefits and time off policies are not competitive.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Dog Groomer in Houston, Texas

    Includes insurance benefits. Can’t say much I never looked into it for many reasons but coworkers who had the benefits said they were decent compared to what they had at other companies

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Manager in San Diego, California

    Vacation time does not include personal time like most companies allow so in total i lost a week of paid time when i came to company

    PTO is terrible, can't carry anything over so partners are almost forced to take large blocks of time off right before service anniversary. Sick pay the same. Use it or lose it is not a good strategy.
