Employee Benefits
Bi-Mart understands the importance of providing health and financial security to you and your family. We strive to attract and retain the best employees and we believe that we accomplish this by offering a comprehensive benefits package. This package, on average, adds 40% to our employees’ total compensation.
Purchase Discount
Following three months of employment, eligible employees may purchase merchandise from any store location, at any front-end register, at a discount.
Group Health/Disability/Survivor Benefits
Bi-Mart makes coverage for preventative care, medical services and supplies, prescription drugs, vision, dental, and mental health and substance abuse treatment available to our eligible employees and their eligible dependents. Employees share in the cost of these benefits through pre-taxed payroll deductions. The company and employees share in the responsibility to control costs as proactive health care consumers.
Basic insurances such as life, accidental death and dismemberment, and disability are also provided.
Retirement Benefits

Bi-Mart offers eligible employees the opportunity to save money for retirement on a pre-tax basis. This program allows employees to defer a portion of their compensation into a tax deferred retirement plan through the convenience of payroll deduction. As a participant of this program, employees are able to self-direct their investments into specific mutual funds or take advantage of time frame portfolios, an investment option based on your expected retirement date that offers a simple way to diversify your retirement investment. Participants have access to their funds through our loan provision and, under certain circumstances, may make withdrawals in the case of hardship.
Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)
The ESOP is designed to give each eligible employee participant a share in the ownership of the company through annual allocations of company stock. Not only do employees benefit from the annual allocation of shares, but they also get the satisfaction of sharing in the potential success of their company and working alongside other employees whose common goal is to make their company succeed.

Jury/Trial Duty
Bi-Mart believes that each employee has a civic responsibility to serve on a jury. As a result, after one year of employment you may be granted up to ten days of paid leave to serve on a jury or to participate as a witness in a trial. If an employee’s civic responsibility requires a longer commitment of time, or if the employee does not have one year of service, leaves are available without pay.
Employees with one year of service may be granted up to three scheduled workdays off, with pay, when a death occurs in the immediate family.
Continuing Education
Bi-Mart provides eligible employees partial tuition reimbursement for courses that are business or pharmacy related and contribute to the improvement of the employee’s on-the-job effectiveness.
