Lowe’s is another big box store that scores high; part-time workers can access most benefits from the day they start, instead of three to six months down the road.
In addition to health insurance, Lowe’s offers another great perk: free training in dozens of areas of home improvement, so you know how to best help customers.
8. The Container Store
The Container Store says it’s all about creating a positive company culture. That’s why they offer part-time employees access to medical, dental and vision insurance, paid time off, 401(k) plans and discounts.
Staples offers part-time employees dental and vision insurance, life insurance and access to a 401(k) savings plan.
Part-time workers also get a 10 percent discount when they shop at Staples and the opportunity to purchase Staples stock at a 15 percent discount.
10. Craft Breweries
Craft breweries are on a growth spurt nationwide, with dozens opening every month.
Mike Stuart, the marketing director of one fast growing brewery, MadTree Brewing, says craft breweries are a lot like start-ups, which means everyone gets to feel like they are a part owner.
Employees who work at least 30 hours a week get health benefits, plus beer and food as perks as soon as you are off the clock.
“It’s a fun, relaxed environment,” Stuart said. “You get to make beer. So if you have a stressful week, at the end of the day you have a beer, and your day gets a little better.”
