General Terms of These Employment Opportunities With Accutek
Accutek has low employee turnover. Of its five associates, the most recent hire was eight years ago. One of these associates was hospitalized for an illness in November 2013, and has not been physically able to return to work yet. We are looking for temporary part-time employees to fill this vacancy on an interim basis. These positions could become permanent and full-time in the future.
Each position is paid by the hour, with weekly paychecks distributed on Mondays for the pay period that ended the preceding Thursday. Overtime for these positions is not likely, but if needed for a seasonal peak demand, is paid at time and a half on hours worked exceeding 40 in the weekly pay period.
Accutek is an equal opportunity employer.
To apply for Accutek employment, please e-mail us a letter of introduction, resume, and supporting documentation you would like us to consider to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please note that there is no “m” at the end of this e-mail address)
Accutek offers two forms of employee benefits, as follows:
- Paid Time Off. Each weekly pay period, paid time off is calculated for each employee as follows: For employees with up to 5 years of Accutek service, 8.33% of time worked is added to his or her running balance of paid time off hours. (For an employee averaging 40 hours per week, this is the equivalent of 4 weeks off with pay yearly). This percentage increases for employees with 5 or more years of Accutek service. Accutek makes no distinction in types of paid time off, so when an employee takes a paid day off for a holiday, sick leave, personal time off, or any other reason, it is deducted from the running balance of paid time off hours in the same pay period for which the employee was paid for time off.
- Employee Health Insurance. Full-time employees, specifically those who have worked 1,560 hours, including paid time off, in the 12 month period ending on the last day of January, are eligible for Accutek’s medical insurance plan for the plan year that begins April 1. Employees in their first year of Accutek employment, hired to work an average of 30 hours per week or more throughout their first year, are also eligible to participate in this plan beginning on the first day of the month after they reach 60 days of Accutek service. (For example, if an employee begins work on January 20, they become eligible for the health insurance plan beginning April 1.)
Some employees will achieve full-time status year-round by working heavy hours in peak season while not being scheduled at all during parts of off season.
Accutek’s employee medical plan is Select Med Plus, offered by Select Health, and is available for themselves, their spouse, and dependent children up to age 26. Employees electing to participate in this plan pay 10% of the premium cost by payroll deduction, and Accutek pays the other 90%.
This percentage split is reviewed once a year to make sure it remains within the requirements of IRS Notice 2012-58 that the employee portion of health insurance be “affordable”, which the notice defines as no more than 9.5% of gross pay. Current details of the plan will be provided each employee yearly at the open enrollment period, which begins in February and takes effect April 1.
