Here, employees don't just have jobs, they build careers. That's why we believe in offering a comprehensive compensation and benefits package that rewards employees for their contributions to our success, supports all aspects of their well-being, and delivers real value at every stage of life. We don't just say it, we live it.
Seth Feit: I'm Seth Feit, Group Vice President of Talent here at Spectrum. We believe our employees are our most valuable resource and we rely on their hard work and skills every day, to deliver on our mission to improve the lives of the customers we serve. That's why we're proud to provide them with some of the best benefits in our industry and we work really hard to keep them affordable.
For example, we've absorbed the full cost increase of our medical, dental and vision benefits for the last eight years, helping our employees to keep as much of their paycheck as possible. Our investment in healthcare and retirement benefits each year is around $16,000 per employee.
Additionally, we are committed to a $20 an hour minimum wage by 2022. We match 401k contributions up to 6% and most employees receive an additional contribution of 3% to a retirement accumulation plan.
There's a strong connection here at Spectrum, and it's a great place to work.

Frequently asked questions
Everyone's needs are different. Below, see some of the common questions people have asked about how our coverage can help them.
We offer three national medical options, plus Kaiser in some areas. Each year we work hard to manage the rising costs of health care by evaluating our plans and absorbing as much of the cost as we can. Plus, if you enroll in one of the national medical options, we put up to $1,500 into a health care account to help you cover eligible expenses.
We also offer two dental options (one with orthodontia), vision coverage and a variety of programs designed to help you stay healthy and get the care you need.
The company matches employee 401(k) contributions up to 6% when the employee contributes on a before tax or Roth after-tax basis (up to IRS allowable limits). Plus, most employees are eligible for an additional 3% company contribution through our Retirement Accumulation Plan (RAP). This unique offering takes your retirement savings to the next level. Together with the 3% company contribution to the RAP, when you contribute 6% of eligible pay or more to the 401(k), you'll receive the maximum 6% company match, for a total of 9% of eligible pay in company contributions per year.
