    This review is for corporate HQ: -Paid days off (7): New Year's, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, two days Thanksgiving, Christmas. -Currently 4% (direct match you put in 4, they pay 4) 401k match with no vesting period. -Two weeks vaca, increasing by a week every five years, plus ability to roll over a week after five years. Negotiate for at least 3 weeks, especially if you are senior. You enter vaca in an HR database -No bonus below the senior level. Senior non-managers start at 7%, paid annually. Bonuses haven't been paid out in years, except perhaps a couple of hundred dollars. They will now be paid in June-ish for the previous calendar year's performance. Performance is based on metrics established each year. -Sick time is used as you need it, you do not enter it into the system. -No real charitable match. There might be some payout to the charity ($500?) if you work 40 hours in a year for a charity. -Two workout rooms: one for men, one for women. -Small but robust cafe on site, open for breakfast and lunch. -Casual dress (business casual tops for women and jeans, no T-shirts or camis or shorts, but decent flip flops are ok). The feeling is that this dress code will go away when new management gets results they want. -Working from home/telecommuting is highly limited. Really only those mostly in the field do it, and a couple of IT people who negotiated it when they accepted the job. It is seriously frowned upon. -Diversity is not a word that the current regime has ever mentioned or clearly endorsed (as reflected, partially, in the limited telecommuting, which has been shown to strongly benefit women. -No feminine/menstrual products provided (see diversity comment). -Bring children to work day in April, on a Friday. Again, the feeling is that the new regime is not friendly to anything but work, so this type of "perk" may evaporate. Still waiting to see if holiday parties paid for by employees will disappear. Previous execs nixed an annual Halloween costume contest. -Annual raises are paid in June. They are in the 1-3% range. They are considered to be performance based, and are based on the previous calendar year's performance - the employee's performance, though each year's budgeted target is essentially what most line employees get, give or take a quarter or half percent. -I use the dental insurance, which is very standard (up to $2k/year, some minimal ortho on high option) -I do NOT use the medical, but hear complaints about how expensive it is. So is the one I use, so par these days. -Offers the typical life, vision, AD&D and short-term disability types of insurance. -No childcare onsite or gym memberships reimbursed. No adoption assistance. I think manternity (FMLA) is all unpaid, and definitely no paternity leave. There is some minimal tuition reimbursement, but I'm not sure what it is. -There is a small ability to flex time by about two hours in some teams. Examples: Arrive at 6 AM, leave at 3 PM or arrive at 9 AM, leave at 6 PM.

    Very long hours with no benefits work you to the max at 25 but none over so they don't have to pay you benefits even after two years of employment

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Shift Leader in Barberton, Ohio

    No company perks, no events. 401k not offered for part-time, offered to full-time. One week vacation to start off, only received after a six month period of hire-on date and/or promotion, progressive allocation of vacation time, one week per scaling year.

    Best thing is 401K program provided by the company, Dental program, and discount Perkspot program also provided by the company.

    No benefits at all for part-time, not even a food discount

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Assistant Store Manager in Detroit, Michigan

    They would match employee contributions on 401k up to 5% of total income before taxes. You can borrow against it at anytime. And you can payback up to 56 months.
