Work/Life at Intrepid

Now that you know a little bit about the job, you may be wondering what it would actually be like to work at Intrepid.

We’ve been nominated by our employees as either finalists or winners of the Best Places to Work awards for five years running. We are known for our family-like environment, insanely good benefits, and extra-mile attitudes.

If our core values of treating each other like family, being mission-focused, giving back, and being intrepid (you know, just a little bit fearless!), resonate with you, you’ll probably make an excellent addition to our team.

The Hours

Nearly every position at Intrepid is professional, but while you might be a salaried person, we don’t expect you to work crazy sun-up to sun-down hours. Forty hours per week is standard and while sometimes we push a little harder during big projects, we’ve established flexible hour policies during two-week pay periods to help even those times out. Work-life balance is important to us, which is why we offer generous accrual of paid personal leave to use for anything you want, and you won’t lose the value of your leave (no use-it or lose-it here!).

The Benefits

Most people who know anything about Intrepid know about our benefits, especially our 401k program. We don’t offer a match (gasp!). That’s right, no match. That’s because we’re going to make a contribution to your 401k whether you donate to it or not. We’ll put 14% of your bi-weekly pay into your account no matter what you do. And you’re going to want to retire with us, because that 14% is going to be growing like a weed while invested in our low-fee index funds provided by Fidelity, and your personal financial advisors are already paid for!

On top of our incredible retirement plans, we are also providing one of the best health insurance plans on the market through Blue Cross Blue Shield. Intrepid covers most of the premium costs and our employees get incredibly low deductibles of just $200 per year! Additionally, we provide all employees and their families with a free telemedicine doctor-on-call to help with easily diagnosable illnesses.

We’re going to provide you and your spouse/dependents with free life insurance and low-cost dental, vision, disability, critical illness, and pet insurance. You’ll also be able to set aside pre-tax dollars into an FSA for medical and dependent care expenses. We will even pay a $1000 scholarship to your newborn/adopted child as well as any children who are enrolled in higher education!

Sound like a lot? Yes, it is. But we believe our employees are worth the investment!

The Perks

Sure, you’ll have access to the usual perks like corporate discounts on things like dining, entertainment, and gyms, but we also like to just have fun. As an employee, you’ll be a VIP at all our annual events like our Chili Cook-Off, Thanksgiving, Lunch & Lawn Games, Ice-Cream Social, Intrepig BBQ, team events, and last but certainly not least, our big end-of-year Christmas bash complete with personal, hand-wrapped gifts for every employee!

Give Back

Like we said above, giving back is one of the core values we hold at Intrepid. Our employees have big hearts for our communities. As a group, we give away tens of thousands of dollars every year through our employee-managed charitable fund, the Intrepid Ideal Community Fund (ICF). We help organizations that do amazing things like, flu shots and soup kitchens for the homeless, health and education services for underprivileged children, and support for the disabled. Our mission is to create ideal communities wherever we live, and our vision of an ideal community is one where the needs of every citizen are met.
