    Most affordable base health insurance for *healthy individuals. I emphasize healthy because the deductible and out of pocket max are very high. WFM does provide a generous HSA/PWA that they add money to yearly and it rolls over. They also provide ways for team members to get help should something happen. I recommend getting the accident insurance and short term disability just in case. More generous PTO than similar fields I’ve worked in. For the first year you get up to 86 hours if full time, if accrues every pay period based on hours worked. After that you can earn 124 hours PTO until 8,000 hours (or 4-5ish years) and you accrue up to 154. PTO rolls over, they never take away unused hours. Great for saving up for maternity leave because CON they don’t offer actual maternity leave. Your “maternity leave” is solely the FMLA Job protected 12 weeks of unpaid leave. You only get paid if you pay for short term disability insurance and that is only 60% pay for 6-8 weeks. So you need PTO. I wish job was protected longer so you don’t have to bring your 3 month old to child care. Unnerving. Employee discount: base is 20% but can increase up to 30% with their healthy incentive program, you do a free health screening from 3rd party and based on results you can get better discount. It’s great to get those tests for free in general as well.

    Meh. Really, A lot of meh. High deductible plan that does not cover much until you reach the deductible. Meh.

    Removed a position in between part time and full time, which allowed you to receive the benefits package. You now have to be full time (availability has to be open for at least 80 hrs/week) to receive any benefits, including 401k

    Health insurance was good, but dental should have been better. PTO used to be STELLAR, but I heard it isn't so much anymore.

    Affordable, unique, motivating, flexible, easy to understand

    Worst deductible on insurance I’ve ever seen. They don’t match 401k from what I was told. You have to save up PTO to protect yourself if you get sick and have to call out.
