    Really great opportunity to set money aside. They will match up to a certain percantage, and mail you the cut if you are to leave the company.

    Instead of a Christmas bonus, you get an equivalent of 10% of your yearly earnings put into your 401k. You can also opt for a percentage of your pay to go directly into your 401k.

    After 3 months it starts, and after 6 they begin to match your contribution

    this 401K really adds up. Its the main reason why I never leave and just stay working part time for so many years. If not for their plan and yearly contributon based on my income, I would not have a retirement fund at all.

    You can put in what you want per pay period...they contribute, I believe, 10% of your yearly 1x per year!

    Trader Joe's contributes 10% to your 401k for everyone working over 700 hours. This is not matching, they contribute whether or not you do.

    They start paying once you have accumulated a certain number of hours
