Command pays 100% of the premium for the employee.
- Life Insurance
Regular full-time employees and part-time employees working a minimum of 25 hours per week are covered by our company paid Group Life Insurance in the amount of $50,000.

This company paid benefit provides $250 per week for a maximum of 26 weeks. Coverage begins the first day for an accident and the eighth for an illness.
- Profit Sharing
Command may in its discretion elect to grant a profit sharing award to our employees based on our profitability for the fiscal year. All regular full-time and part-time employees who have been employed by Command for more than one year and who work a minimum of 1000 hours per year are eligible to participate in the Profit Sharing Plan.
Command has an Employee Retirement Plan, also referred to as a 401(k) plan, to provide employees with a monthly pension benefit upon retirement. All regular full-time and part-time employees are eligible to participate in the 401(k) Plan. Entry dates are quarterly. Each employee may elect to have his/her compensation reduced by up to 20% to a maximum contribution of $9,500 during any given plan year. An employer contribution may be granted each year. The amount of any discretionary contribution will be based on Command�s profitability.
- Section 125/Cafeteria Plan
Command sponsors a tax savings employee benefit plan which can save employees and their families considerable dollars in federal taxes each year. The essence of the "Cafeteria Plan" is that it allows employees to pay for the family portion of our group major medical, dental, long term disability and vision insurance as well as child care or elder care costs with pre-tax income dollars. Because we deduct the cost of medical insurance prior to taxes being calculated, the employee�s pay check will reflect an increase in take home pay.
Also, employees may participate in the Flexible Spending Account portion of the plan which allows employees to pay for medical and health related expenses with pre-tax dollars, further reducing tax liability.
Vacation is a time for our employees to rest, relax and pursue special interests. All regular full-time and part-time employees are eligible for paid vacation. Each employee earns 10 days of paid vacation each year.
- Paid Holidays

We believe that individuals who possess a desire to continue their education in addition to performing a full-time job, show a commitment to improving themselves and their position within the company. To encourage and reward these employees, Command offers an Education Assistance benefit.
Command strongly believes that a healthy, well balanced lifestyle contributes to overall success and happiness in the workplace so we encourage employees to participate in a variety of company-sponsored wellness programs.
One of the most popular wellness benefits are the weekly on-site neck and back massages that are offered to all employees. The company paid massages are provided by professional massage therapists.
Also offered are weekly fitness classes conducted by a licensed fitness instructor. In order to accommodate most work schedules, the one hour classes are offered at 2 different time periods 3 days a week. Classes vary from toning/stretching to low impact aerobics.
- Health Days
The management at Command wants to encourage employee health and help alleviate any financial hardship which may result from your need to stay home and become healthy if you are ill or injured or for any necessary medical appointments or treatment. Each employee who has completed the ninety (90) day Introductory Period will be granted five (5) Health Days on December 1 of each year. These Health Days are granted on a prorated basis depending on an employee�s date of hire.
