I am enjoying the benefits and perks that Douglas College offers. Aside from health and dental benefits, I can get my prescription eyeglasses for up to $500 dollar worth and I get free use of the fitness centre, a good array of free fitness classes (yoga, zumba, spin, circuit training, etc.) and discounted rates for a personal trainer. The pension plan, with the College putting in more than the dollars I put in makes me feel secure about future retirement. Getting the extra life insurance coverage that is 3 times my annual salary is also a plus.
Working part-time at Douglas College doesn't come with many benefits. Well at least to my knowledge as they never mentioned I had any health, dental, or other benefits.
The best thing about benefits at Douglas College is Pension Plan. The worst thing about it is no MSP coverage
Medical insurance covers the costs of physician and surgeon fees, hospital rooms, and prescription drugs. Dental and optical care might be offered as part of an overall benefits package. It may be offered as separate pieces or not covered at all. Coverage can sometimes include the employee's family (dependents). Employers usually pay all or part of the premium for employee medical insurance. Often employees pay a percentage of the monthly cost. The cost of insurance through an employer
Best: the dental plan coverage is really good. Never had to pay anything from my pocket. They also have a program that offers counselling outside of the college. It’s for short-term only, but it’s good to have it. Worst: chiropractor, physiotherapist etc have a minimal coverage (we get $10 back from the amount we paid, no matter how much we paid).
Starts off with 3 weeks vacation which bumps up to 4 weeks after 4 years.
contract work,bo benefits, although they did pay in advance.very disorganized.
The dental plan is fantastic, but they need to improve the Vision and Extended coverage, especially the physiotherapy component
Extended health that includes dental, however, only receive $10 reimbursement for Chiro and message therapy. Eye glasses/exam is only $200 every two years
Dental coverage covers 100%, which is fantastic. On a short-term contract the other medical coverage is horrible. They cover $10 for each of the first 5 visits for RMT, chiro, etc., and then only a total of $275 per year per practitioner.
