Room & Board is committed to creating a work environment that is respectful, positive and mindful of your needs. This healthy approach to work is perhaps our greatest staff member benefit.
We are proud to provide full benefit coverage to those staff members who work 20 or more hours each week.
Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance
Our medical, dental and vision coverage is comprehensive, aimed at keeping staff members and their families healthy. All require premium contributions from staff members, so everyone shares responsibility for maintaining good health.
We are proud to offer domestic partnership coverage when our insurance providers offer such coverage.
We recognize that vacation time is fundamental to good health. Therefore, we offer a generous vacation schedule that gives staff members three weeks of paid vacation per year during the first five years of employment and four weeks per year thereafter.

We encourage active participation in our 401(k) retirement savings plan. Staff members can save pretax income and Room & Board provides a discretionary match each year up to 50% of the first 8% that a staff member defers.
