    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.

    Employment match is nice and I don't know if I would have saved any of it without a plan offered by the company

    They match dollar for dollar so it is up to the user to choose the percentage of each paycheck that they want to/ can afford to put towards the plan.

    If you are 30 years and older, at the end of the calendar year, TJ's deposits into your company 401k account 10% of your yearly earnings. The period for it to get it fully vested is 6 years. If you are 20 to 29 years of age, you get a check at the end of the year equal to 5% of your yearly pay.
