When you find out how much it costs to pay for health, dental and vision benefits on your own, you might change your mind about going part time. You are fortunate, a vast number of store-level TMs are ineligible for the health and vision benefits because they didn't meet the "open enrollment" requirement of averaging 29.5 hours per week over the prior 12 months.So I want to go part time and I have health, dental, vision. What happens when my paycheck isn’t enough to cover the cost? Can I pay out of pocket?
If my average falls below 30 and there isn’t time for me to pull it back up I’ll have a very strongly worded conversation with HR..Don't kid yourself, HR can get their hands on an algorithm, a program and a long term plan to gradually diminish you and your hours to dog shit with the express purpose of gently forcing one out. It's called uber passive aggressiveness.
