the 401k package was very nice. They would match up to 8% for the first 3 years of employment, and after that they would match 50% more than what you put in up to 6%. So, technically up to 20% (8 % from you and 12% from them).

Health insurance, even for a part time position is comparable to some of the best out there.

It is Above minimum wage. There are no other benefits offered to students. But that’s expected for a university usually

Current Research Technician III in Pittsburgh, PA, Pennsylvania

During the first five years you get 10 days of paid vacation, and two paid personal days each year. After the first five years you get upgraded to 15 days of paid vacation, along with 2 personal days per year! The sick time accrual rate is amazing. I dont get sick often but I have many days to use should I ever need them. The 403b employer matched contribution plan will match employee input of funds up to 8%. The health care plan is excellent.

Great matching at 8% on the 403(b) once you have met the 3-year delayed vesting period, and they have an optional 457(b) plan for additional retirement savings. Accelerated options are available if you are over 52 years. See summary here: https://www.hr.pitt.edu/current-employees/benefits/retirement-savings-plan/defined-contribution UPMC in-network health services are great, arguably the best health coverage option in town. Pitt's salaries are not really competitive, but the cost of living in Pittsburgh (versus, say, the Bay Area) is low enough that it is a great place for families.
