EXCELLENT BENEFITS PACKAGE
“Employee benefit plans are consistently polled as being one of the most important aspects of a job, and Merit provides some of the best in the business,” says Rick Portrey, Director of Recruiting and Employment at Merit. “We offer competitive pay with an anticipated pay increase in the coming weeks, as well as paid vacation and an employee stock program to help strengthen your investment portfolio.” Merit’s health benefits are bolstered by other unique offers, such as an on-site clinic at the Salt Lake City Global Headquarters, which provides excellent healthcare and major savings in medical expenses for employees and their family members.
Maybe you’re coming from a job with a rotating schedule, and you’re looking for something more consistent. Perhaps you need the stability of a guaranteed number of hours each week, with the possibility of overtime. Or you might need an early shift that will free up your afternoons to run errands or pick up the kids from school. Whatever the reason, Merit’s shift stability is why employees love working here. “We offer a variety of shifts to choose from, so you can work the hours that are best for your schedule,” Portrey explains. Shifts are consistent week to week, providing a guaranteed number of hours, so employees can plan better. Putting it best, Portrey adds, “We want to accommodate many situations, including people with families to care for, which is why we offer the schedules we do. With shifts starting as early as 4:30 AM, or shifts that run Monday through Thursday, we show that we want to work with your schedule, not against it.” Merit knows that family matters. Helping employees and their families thrive is an important part of the company-wide culture.
