Employee Benefits

At AmericanAg, we offer competitive salaries along with a robust benefits package.

AmericanAg offers health and prescription coverage to eligible full-time employees and their families. Eligible employees can choose from two PPO plans – a low deductible plan or an HSA-eligible high deductible plan. AmericanAg pays most of the cost for individual coverage and a large portion of the cost for family coverage. AmericanAg also offers dental coverage from Delta Dental PPO and vision coverage from VSP.

The machine-readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers to more easily access and analyze data.

AmericanAg employees can take advantage of both a company-funded cash balance retirement plan and a 401(k) plan. The 401(k) plan is available through Fidelity. AmericanAg matches employee contributions to the 401(k) dollar for dollar up to $3,000 per plan year. Matching funds are vested immediately.

AmericanAg pays 100% of the cost of approved seminars, classes, and certification/designation program fees for employees. AmericanAg reimburses up to $600 per credit hour for degree programs, which is provided upon completion of the degree program.

Pre-tax flexible spending accounts are available for health, dependent care, parking, and public transportation. For employees that participate in the high deductible health insurance plan, we also offer a Health Savings Account (HSA), along with an annual employer contribution.

For full-time employees, vacation starts at 15 days per year. AmericanAg also provides 13 paid holidays per year (which includes 4 floating holidays). During the summer, employees can reallocate their working hours and take every other Friday off.

Fifteen days of leave for a Qualified Sick Leave Event are credited to each new full-time employee. After that, paid sick leave is accrued at the rate of one day per full calendar month of employment. Salary continuation for a short-term disability is paid at 100% of salary, while long-term disability coverage is provided at 60% of salary.

AmericanAg offers generous leave policies for new parents, including 12 weeks of paid maternity leave and 2 weeks of paid paternity leave following the birth of a child, and 8 weeks of paid parental leave following the adoption of a child or placement of a foster child.

Additional benefits include reimbursement for fitness club membership, paid volunteer time, an employee referral bonus, and more.
