    The 401k plan is transferable after you leave the work place. While working for the company and being enrolled to the plan, they match the amount you put in.

    401K is all on the employee. Although, they do have a generous pension type plan.

    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
