WE SUPPORT YOU AND YOURS
FLEXIBLE WORK SCHEDULE
Work the hours that work for you.
At ATEC, we believe that Our Mission and Our People are equally important. That’s why we let you choose your work schedule to fit your needs. Working within our core hours, you can choose a start time that works for you. Whether you need your evenings free, hate early mornings, or would rather work fewer than 5 days a week, ATEC has flexibilities to support your work life without sacrificing your home life.
TIME OFF FOR ILLNESS AND EMERGENCIES
When you are sick, you shouldn’t have to come to work. Period. That’s why all ATEC employees begin earning paid time off for illness or medical appointments from their first day on the job. You will earn 13 days (104 hours) of medical time off every year which can be used for yourself or your family. You can also use this time off for funeral or bereavement for a family member.
104 hours earned annually may be used for:
Illness or incapacitation
Serious medical conditions
Care of family member
Funeral or bereavement for family member
If you don’t use these days, they are carried over to the next year. They never expire and there is no limit on the number of days you can bank. That is a benefit 79% of for-profit companies don’t offer*. For example, an employee who banks all of their sick time off for 10 years will have a balance of 1,040 hours, or 26 weeks of paid time off. That’s the equivalent of a 100% paid short term disability insurance, all for no extra cost.
In some cases, you can even borrow the sick leave you will earn in future years to use for yourself or a family member with a serious medical condition.
You also have the option to donate your personal time off to employees who have a leave or medical emergency.

VACATION AND PAID TIME OFF
ALWAYS be home for Christmas. And Thanksgiving. And Memorial Day.
Unlike many for-profit companies, ATEC gives you 10 PAID holidays from your first day on the job. That’s 80 hours of vacation time that you don’t have to use to see family or hit the beach for a long weekend with friends.
New Year’s Day—January
Plus, you will earn personal leave days and sick days as soon as you start work—no waiting periods for new employees. In fact, in your first year you will get 10 paid holidays, 13 personal leave days AND 13 sick days. That’s almost double what the average first year employee will earn in private industry.
Lactation Support for New Mothers.
We support all working moms by providing dedicated space for the purpose of expressing breastmilk. Private rooms are provided in all ATEC buildings along with reasonable break times for new moms during the first year after child birth.
ON-LOCATION CHILD CARE
Keep Your Kids Close by.
On-site facilities such as full and part-time day care, school year care, and summer camps may be available to children up to 18 years old. These programs provide income-based savings so that everyone has a fair chance to participate.
PAID PARENTAL LEAVE
Time Off for Precious Moments.
All ATEC employees may enjoy 12 weeks of fully paid time away for new parents to bond with their child after birth, adoption, or placement. This time off does not count against personal days or other time off for illness or medical appointments. You can also continue to enjoy your regular benefits such as healthcare coverage and paid holidays during this time off.
