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.

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 area 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.

401(k) Plan

An employee receives a discretionary profit-sharing contribution equal to 4% of compensation earned after the first anniversary of active employment. This contribution is not dependent on the employee’s having made deferral contributions.
When an employee makes a 401(k) contribution then he or she becomes eligible to receive the company’s discretionary matching contribution, dollar-for-dollar up to 3%.
In addition Western Growers offers profit sharing, an employee has the potential of earning a total of 10% of their total gross wages on a pretax basis, with 17 investment options to choose from.


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, 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.
