If you're casual, your only benefit is $25/month in healthcare spending account. Sounds great at first until you realized the vast majority of these so called casual staff are working full time hours. You also get 16 hours of sick leave per year - which is a little odd since you're expected to get your shift covered if you're not coming into work, so you don't actually get it. After a YEAR of working you get a tuition reimbursement of $250: Caveat is it's pro rated for the the year, which means if you use it the month you qualify then leave 2 months later, you're paying them back for most of it
