We offer a QHDHP with employer HSA contribution or a traditional PPO plan; with two different medical plans to choose from, our team members find a plan that best fits their needs. Because healthcare is so important, Cascade will share the cost of your family’s medical benefits with you.

From your first day of work you’ll be earning PTO. PTO hours earned increase with seniority. Our holidays schedule allows for rest time as well; we have a minimum of 10 paid holidays allowing you to relax and make memories with your friends and family.
