  • Traditional Benefit Coverage
    We participate in a comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance program with ease of use and access for employees and their dependents.
  • Flexibility
    We know things come up. That’s why we have flex hours and paid vacation and sick/personal time to help you find that ideal work/life integration. Bereavement time off is not limited. We care about you.
  • Fun & Games
    We like to have fun and we try to shake it up; we’re on a shuffleboard team (yes it’s making a comeback). We paddle board. We kayak. We enjoy food trucks. You can always find a little competitive fun during office events – especially during the holidays. And if you join us and have other ideas, we’d love to hear them.
  • Wellness
    We reward our employees for going to the doctor and offer a premium discount for those who do. And if you have something in your life that gets you moving (swing dance, spin class, cross fit, etc.) we’ll pay up to $100 for you to go and release those endorphins!
  • Financial Planning
    Just like we care about your personal health, we care about your financial health, which is why we participate in a 401k retirement plan. Additionally, we partner with our local Wells Fargo team and arrange for you to have one-on-one time to plan for your future.
  • Reimbursement
    Want to continue to grow? We can help. Let’s chat about tuition, computer, and uniform reimbursement.

  • Drop in the Bucket

    Earnest raised over $25,000 which built a water well and working toilets in Uganda. Imagine not having water in your home. Imagine walking three miles to collect water that might be contaminated. Imagine changing the lives and futures of thousands of people through clean water. That is what Earnest did – imagined making an impact on thousands of lives.
