After reading all these answers, I have realized that apparently their HR manager has not explained all the benefits to their FT employees, leaving then in the dark... When I was HR Lead for Sears Holding Company, that was one of my duties, to keep everyone on the same page and let them know that they could opt for the medical insurance thru the company or you could go to a local insurance broker and get awesome medical with little to none deductible. That's what I did and I kept Sears' great vision and dental. I took my position very seriously and when the FT employees cost for their medical increased the following year, I sought out other plans thru a insurance broker. So, it all depends on how your HR Lead takes their job... Seriously or not! I remember when I worked here during High School, 30 years ago... The part time cashier's, that was my position, back then... We received our birthdays off with pay, we were paid in cash every Friday, we had Exceptional deals and savings, our families were able to shop with extra special deals when the store was closed to the public, especially during the holidays. The vibe was that of a family..

Only if you are full time they provide all of the basic benefits that a regular employer would provide.

Nothing if they keep you under 40 hours, and they will try their hardest to do so!

They offer medical, dental, and vision. However, medical is around $370 every 2 weeks with a $9k deductible. You have to be there a year before you can accrue any paid time off.
