401k paid vacation. The worst thing is they don't treat all their employees the same
Overall, Tyson offers a robust benefits program, a significant cost of which is covered by Tyson. The downfall of their program is it's inconsistencies between locations and teams. Some team members are offered a mobile phone stipend each month and others in the same role are not. Tyson changed their holiday schedule about 18 months ago which was a reduction in allotment for Chicago team members. At that same time, the vacation policy changed such that new team members have to wait 6 months - 1 year (depending on role/level) to accrue vacation. However, this is also to the manager's discretion so it could vary on the same team or across teams. The medical insurance through Blue Cross Blue Shield was a nightmare to deal with in Chicago because the plan is based out of AR but for Chicago team members, providers must go through BCBS Illinois first. Illinois and Arkansas systems didn't talk to each other and in some cases I would receive paperwork from BCBS that employees would have no record from because it came from the other location. They were incredibly slow to respond to claims and address appeals. While the poor service is not Tyson's fault, it should be noted that they were undesirable as a provider offered up by Tyson. I selected YES for employee discount but the company store is in AR so it's not applicable to team members at other locations (or remote team members). Likewise, the Dakota Dunes office has a recurring offering whereby team members can order bulk meats at a discount where a truck comes to the office, but this is not available to other locations. Summer hours were originally only offered at the Chicago office, have since been extended to all locations (at manager discretion and upon following guidelines), but the culture at certain locations (Chicago) is more fostering of the benefit than others (Springdale). Good news: Tyson recently reinstated a generous employer match program for team members' personal charitable donations. Tyson has a generous 401k match and stock purchase discount program. I selected NO for volunteer time off, because it isn't built into a policy that employees get a certain amount of time off to volunteer, however I will say that Tyson IS supportive of team members participating in community service activities as a team or with the business resource groups. I selected unsure for a number of other benefits where I know some teams offer the benefit, but because it wasn't a known, widely offered benefit, I didn't want to select yes or no one way or the other.
Great benefits after 90 days. Offer 401k and they match your money you put in up to a certain amount. Offer health insurance through blue cross blue shield as well as vision and dental. Also life insurance is offered.
when they took out taxes
Benefits don’t start right away
THey offer discounts on almost everything just for being a Tyson employee!
That tyson offers 401k and they have awesome benefits
Best 401K, health, annual bonus, Eye care program was not great
I love the benefits. The best thing is that they offer the benefits as soon as you sign up online for them. The worse thing is that your required to take them regardless if you have insurance already or not.
I actually loved the Health Buy Up Plan, Vision Buy Up Plan, & the Dental Buy Up Plan through Blue Cross & Blue Shield. They barely took any money from my check. Since, I don't have no kids, it was great!
