Strong Mission Tied to Satisfaction

And making a difference in the world leads to high levels of employee satisfaction. In fact:

Competitive Pay and Comprehensive Benefits

Gillette provides competitive pay and a comprehensive benefits package to help you balance your personal and financial needs—now and in the future. We offer options for medical, dental and vision insurance. We offer generous amounts of paid time off, which begins accruing as soon as you start work. In addition, we provide disability insurance, life insurance, adoption assistance, tuition reimbursement, retirement savings and other benefit plans.

Through Minnesota Employee Recreation and Services Council (MERSC) and SmartSavings, Gillette offers discounts at a variety of local attractions and organizations. We also have partnerships with Children’s Discovery Academy, Dell, Sam’s Club and many other businesses.

Gillette offers these benefits to employees who work at least 40 hours every two weeks.

Dental Insurance

We offer dental coverage for employees and their families. The plan includes orthodontia coverage for dependent children 18 and younger.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Employees have access to two types of flexible spending accounts. The accounts allow you to pay for eligible health care and/or dependent care expenses before you pay taxes on the funds. In essence, pretax spending accounts lower your out-of-pocket expenses for health care and dependent care.

Health Savings Accounts

If you opt for the high-deductible medical insurance plan, you can also enroll in a health savings account. You may make contributions to the account, and Gillette will make monthly contributions to help cover your medical expenses.

Medical Insurance

Employees are eligible for health insurance the month after they start at Gillette. 

Vision Insurance

Our vision insurance pays for eye exams, frames and lenses. Our medical insurance also covers eye exams (but not frames and lenses).

Gillette offers these benefits to employees who work at least 40 hours every two weeks.

Adoption Assistance

Gillette provides an adoption reimbursement benefit to employees who adopt children. The benefit is subject to income tax.

Carpool Program / Bus Pass

Employees at our St. Paul campus who participate in the Rideshare program with a Gillette or Regions Hospital employee receive free parking and a guaranteed parking spot. If you have a valid driver’s license and choose to ride a bus rather than drive your car to work, Gillette will subsidize the cost of your bus pass (up to the amount the IRS deems tax-excludable). If you have a disability and use Metro Mobility to get to work, we’ll subsidize the cost of a Metro Mobility pass.

Employee Assistance Program

We offer employees and their families access to a free, confidential employee assistance service. The program provides counseling, financial information and resources, and legal support and resources.

Flexible Scheduling

Gillette offers flexible scheduling and part-time employment options in many career areas.

Jury Duty

We pay employees for up to 30 calendar days of time lost while attending jury duty. You’ll retain all jury-duty payments from the court (with no deductions by Gillette.)

Leaves of Absence

Gillette offers leaves of absence for a variety of reasons. We comply with the requirements of the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, the Minnesota Parental Leave Act, and other applicable laws. We offer bereavement leave, bone marrow donation leave, medical leave, military leave, parental leave (including leave to attend a child’s school conferences and school activities) and personal leave.

Paid Time Off

New employees receive paid time off (PTO) beginning on their first day, and they continue accruing time throughout the year. Full-time staff earn at least 25 days per year of PTO, which combines vacation, holiday and sick time. PTO accrual is prorated for part-time employees.

Tuition Reimbursement

After you complete six months of employment, Gillette will reimburse 100 percent of the costs of tuition and books—up to $2,500 a year—for education expenses related to your current position or to future opportunities at Gillette.

Wellness Program

Gillette's Wild on Wellness (WOW!) program helps employees improve their health. You may participate in activities just for fun or earn points for incentives throughout the year.

Gillette provides these benefits to employees who work at least 40 hours every two weeks. You don’t have to contribute to the cost of these benefits.
