We're Nothing Without Great People

We believe our employees are our most valuable asset. All our employees receive in-depth training to enhance their personal and professional development. Training centers around leadership, communication and cultivating relationships. Trust, accountability and cooperation are our guiding principles.

Our culture centers around finding and keeping top talent. That's why Western Growers offers a competitive benefits package. Employees become eligible for benefits the first day of the month following one month of continuous employment. 

Health Benefits

We offer our employees a choice of three PPO plans, three dental plans and a vision plan. Each employee get a flex-dollar credit amount to use toward benefits or save for a flexible spending account. This credit amount and the cost of benefits are both prorated across the year. Credit amounts vary based on employee-only or employee plus dependents coverage.

401(k) Plan

Employees have the ability to save for retirement through Western Growers Retirement Security 401(k) Plan, managed through OneAmerica. There is no waiting period for employee contributions. However, there is a waiting period before Western Growers matches employees' contributions or makes a profit-sharing contribution.

Educational Reimbursement

Employees can receive reimbursement up to a certain dollar amount for continuing education through an accredited program that offers either growth in an aea related to the employee's current position or might lead to promotional opportunities.

Vacation and Holidays

Employees accrue vacation time according to their tenure. They also accrue sick time separate from vacation time. Western Growers honors eight paid holidays per year. Plus, after a 90-day introductory period, employees earn up to two floating holidays per year.

Other Benefits

From flexible spending accounts and employee assistance programs to life insurance and wellness programs, Western Growers offers a comprehensive set of ancillary benefits. Plus, through our onsite cafeteria, discounted tickets to southern California attractions, discounted dry cleaning and car detailing (Irvine headquarters only), our employees enjoy a culture that rewards their hard work.
