The Benefits Of Working At Modern Times

Modern Times has been open for 4 years, and we’ve grown exponentially in that time. With a spate of recent announcements regarding new locations, beers, distribution markets, and a rapidly growing staff, we think it’s important to let you know why we think Modern Times is a pretty rad place to work. Here are some of the perks and benefits of working at Modern Times:

We’re Employee-Owned!
We’re California’s first employee-owned brewery, with 30% of our equity held in an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, guaranteeing employees the opportunity to earn equity in the company over time, and creating some seriously amazing career opportunities for our team. You can read all about how we did it and what it all means in detail HERE.

The Pay
We pride ourselves on paying at (and often above) an extremely competitive level, for our industry and our town. Our base pay rate on our production team is $15/hour, a cool $4.50 above minimum wage here in California. We realize income isn’t everything when it comes to being happy at a job, but it’s a great place to start.

Health Care
For a company that is just 4 years old, Modern Times offers some pretty incredible medical benefits to employees. Modern Times provides 50% contributions to the health care of employees AND their dependents. On top of that, we cover 100% of dental, vision, long-term disability, acupuncture and chiropractic care, and life insurance.

UNLIMITED Paid Time-Off
Our team works incredibly hard to make and serve kick ass beer, coffee, and merchandise. There is an inherent expectation of very hard work at Modern Times, but we also try to promote a work/life balance. Honestly, this is an area where we could stand to improve because the extremely rapid growth of the brewery has meant long hours for everyone. But we nonetheless offer unlimited paid time-off for our full-time staff, which is an extension of our results-focused management philosophy. Basically, if you kickass at your job, we trust you to manage your time responsibly.

2-Month Sabbatical at 5 Years
Outstanding performers who stick with Modern Times for 5 years are eligible for a 2-month paid sabbatical. That’s a pretty amazing and uncommon benefit. Not many companies will pay you to take 2 months off.

The Beer, Coffee, and Gear
Outstandingly delicious free beer and coffee are humongous perks of working here. Employees are entitled to a free pint or delicious coffee beverage every day they work. Team members also receive two 4-packs, a bomber, and a 64oz growler of their choosing every week, as well a $250 gift card every year to spend on merch, event tickets, coffee, or whatever else. They also get a 20% discount on all merch & beer, and some really sweet work-a-versary perks. 

This is only a partial list of the beer, coffee, & event benefits, which are far too numerous to list here. Suffice to say, we’re not messing around. On top of those perks, employees are also frequently asked to taste the latest new & experimental beers, which is pretty rad.

Ready to move, have a place to live down there and will take almost any job you'll give me (get me out of LA).  I also want to enroll in either the SDSU or UCSD programs so I can grow with you guys!  I often visit your brewery and would love to call it "home."  My resume is in your stack... of course after reading this, its probably now a mountain.

I've never heard of any company giving their employees TWO MONTHS PAID vacation. That is insanely generous! And makes me want to work here that much more. Fingers crossed!

Hopefully,
