FamiliesFirst is committed to hiring the most qualified, experienced and dedicated people in the field. Our interview process is consistent yet challenging so we can obtain our goal of finding the best candidates available.
FamiliesFirst expects all associates to be passionate about serving children and families and to demonstrate our core values of Collaboration, Adaptation, Respect and Excellence daily. We hold our associates to the highest possible standards with the hopes that our clients will benefit from our services and in turn our associates will grow and learn from their experience with FamiliesFirst.
We ask that all of our associates are committed to diversity, teamwork, hard work, integrity and most importantly finding each of our client's individual strengths.
In exchange we hope to provide a competitive salary and benefits package, a positive and productive workplace, and a workplace that is flexible and adaptive and a place to learn from some of the best interdisciplinary teams in the industry.
Founded in 1974, FamiliesFirst has become one of California's most respected organizations dedicated to protecting children and preserving families. Our success can be credited to innovative programs and unwavering dedication to solving problems. However, it is our loyal associates who contribute most directly to the wonderful work for which FamiliesFirst is so well known. We believe in rewarding that dedication, and offer the following benefit package to eligible associates:
FamiliesFirst offers three options to meet our associates healthcare needs: Kaiser Permanente, PacificCare HMO and PacifiCare PPO.
Kaiser Permanente and PacifiCare are Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO), while PacifiCare PPO is a Preferred Provider Option.
Each plan allows associates to select their own doctor from a list of participating physicians, and both offer first-class medical care and affordable rates. HMO's provide comprehensive coverage, but specialized treatment must be authorized by primary care physicians.
Each plan includes hospitalization, prescription drugs, mental health coverage, durable medical equipment, well-baby care, and other services - as well as preventative care, like check-ups. Co-pays and deductibles vary depending on the plan.
FamiliesFirst offers a great dental plan through Premier Access. The plan coverage ranges from dental exams to orthodontia (for dependents). Associates can pick any dentist, but they save money selecting a dentist from the directory.
Medical Eye Services covers "materials" such as contacts and eyeglasses - a great complement to the eye exam benefit included in our healthcare plans. Associates can select contact lenses (up to $105 per year) or eyeglass lenses annually, and the frame allowance is $125 every two years. FamiliesFirst covers the cost of this benefit.
401(k) Retirement Plan
Associates are eligible immediately to enroll in the FamiliesFirst Prudential 401(k) retirement plan. To become eligible for any employer match the individual(s) must be employed for six (6) continuous months.
AFLAC Supplemental Insurance
FamiliesFirst is pleased to offer 5 supplemental insurance policies through AFLAC. The policies are completely optional and includes Cancer Expense Protection, Intensive Care Protection, Personal Short Term Disability, Personal Recovery Plus, and Personal Accident Expense Plus.
Associates automatically receive life insurance through Jefferson Pilot, with a benefit of one year's salary (up to $200,000) plus an accidental death and dismemberment rider. FamiliesFirst covers the cost of this benefit.
Long Term Disability
To give associates long term protection, they are covered by Jefferson Pilot. Associates are eligible for approximately 60% of annual salary (up to $10,000 per month) if disabled for more than 90 days. FamiliesFirst completely covers the cost of this benefit.
IRS Section 125
FamiliesFirst associates are able to pay their premiums for healthcare, dental and AFLAC Supplemental Insurance on a pre-tax basis (saving money) through payroll deduction. Pre-tax deductions for certain additional health and dependent care expenses can also be arranged.
Employee Assistance Program
Associates are covered 24 hours a day at no charge by the Ann Clark Employee Assistance Program to help deal with everyday - or more serious - problems. Associates and household members and/or immediate family are eligible to receive three visits per clinical problem every 12 months with a confidential counselor. Ann Clark also offers information on childcare, elder care, pet care - even legal issues.
After 12 months, eligible associates may qualify for up to $1000 per year for registration, books and tuition - for job-related degrees. We'll also reimburse associates up to $250 per year for other Continuing Education Units courses related to their job. To qualify, associates must apply before enrolling in class and get a 'B' or better.
If approved, the associate receives discounted rates for auto, homeowners, and renters insurance. The policy rates are based on a 1-year term and premium can be paid via convenient payroll deductions.
PrePaid Legal offers the following services: Preventive Legal Services; Motor Vehicle Legal Services; Trial Defense Services; IRS Audit Legal Services; and Preferred Member Discount.
