Non-Traditional Benefits

Employee Referral Program

Pride will reward an employee making a referral $50 when the referred applicant is employed and active for a 6-month period.

Employee Stock Ownership Program

Since January 1, 1998, employees have been rewarded with shares of stock. At the beginning of each year an independent appraisal is conducted to determine the updated value of each share. The value has really grown due to the contributions from Pride and the performance level of the company. Employees must be vested with 5 years of service, with 1,000 hours of service worked in each year, to be eligible for the value of the shares.

Pride offers an Employee Assistance Plan which provides up to three free counseling sessions to all employees and their eligible dependents for issues such as marital conflict, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, personal loss, anger, time management and stress. Financial and legal consultation is also available.
