Part-time jobs with good benefits may seem elusive, but Glassdoor reports that some companies are hiring for such positions right now.
The employer review site recently detailed 10 companies that are currently hiring for part-time jobs with benefits.
“At these 10 companies, even the employees who work less than 40 hours a week can opt into amazing benefits, such as access to a 401k, paid vacation time, and even tuition reimbursement.”
These companies are:
- Home Depot
- JPMorgan Chase
- Recreational Equipment Inc. (REI)
- United Parcel Service of America (UPS)
- Whole Foods
Glassdoor does not specify whether this is part of a trend, but as we explain in “7 Ways to Get the Job With the Best Benefits“:
“Today’s high-employment economy can be great for job hunters with the kind of skills and experience that are in demand. Unemployment numbers are so low … that companies hoping to hire the best talent need to find ways stand out. One way they do that is by dangling great job perks.”
A recent Glassdoor survey found that benefits are among the top factors that folks look for when researching job ads, second only to salary.
The survey also found that attractive benefits and perks are the No. 1 factor that would make job hunters more likely to apply for a position. They outranked a convenient commute, high salary and good work-life balance, among other factors.
