Human Resources Director Mandy Romero on compensation:
"The overall structure of compensation is salary with commission, but specialized compensation enhancements have grown. We offer two insurance programs for employees to choose from, paid legal services, eight hours of paid time each year for community service/volunteering and also theft protection. Our sick-leave policy has changed to a paid time-off program, allowing for more flexibility in using not only vacation time but also sick leave. We offer pretax programs for both child care and dependent care and also for items such as prescriptions, exams and deductibles."
