We Invest In Our People
At Goldsboro Builders Supply and Family of Companies, we support our military and are extremely thankful for their service, which is why we offer paid military leave. Leave of absence for Reserve or National Guard military duty will be granted for up to two weeks of active duty for military training. These two weeks are not counted against the normal PTO.
We support growing families. If a pregnant employee is temporarily unable to perform her job because of pregnancy she will be treated the same as any other temporarily disabled employee. Following 3 months of consecutive employment, if an employee is absent from work as a result of a pregnancy-related condition and recovers, her position will remain open for her return.
Bereavement/ Funeral Leave
One can never be compensated for the loss of an immediate family member through death. In the event of such an occurrence, it is the intent of the company to protect employees from loss of earnings due to making necessary funeral arrangements and attending the funeral. All FULL-TIME employees who have ninety (90) or more days of continuous service will be paid up to a maximum of two days absences for each occasion of death in the immediate family.
Paid Time Off
PTO is an all-purpose time off policy for employees to use for vacation, illness or injury, and personal business. It combines traditional vacation, sick leave and floating holiday plans into one flexible, paid time-off policy. The Company prorates your PTO during the first partial calendar year of employment based on the first of the month following thirty days from your hire date. All subsequent full years of employment PTO eligibility follows a schedule.
At Goldsboro Builders Supply and Family of Companies, we observe nine paid holidays through the year as follows:
New Year's Day
Day after Thanksgiving Day
Day before or after Christmas (depends on how calendar falls that year)
The burdensome expenses of a major injury or sickness can seriously affect your financial security. Major medical benefits help protect you against such expenses for both you and your eligible family members. The following insurance programs are available:
Life/ Supplemental Life Insurance
Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance
Medical Insurance Supplemental
Short Term Disability Insurance
Employer Match 401k
In addition to our benefits, job satisfaction, and camaraderie at work, we also offer competitive pay that may include base pay and additional incentives, depending on position.
Thinking about your future is very important to us which is why we encourage every eligible employee to participate in the tax deferred savings program, 401-K. GBS currently matches a percentage of what you put in. GBS invests in your future.
Jury Duty Pay
Goldsboro Builders Supply and Family of Companies recognizes the need for United States citizens to serve on jury duty when called upon to do so. Any FULL-TIME employee who is summoned and reports for jury duty on a day otherwise scheduled to work shall be paid the difference between your base pay and any compensation you received for jury duty for a maximum of three weeks.
Volunteer/ Community Service
Goldsboro Builders Supply and Family of Companies recognizes the importance of building positive relationships within our community, which is why we offer up to 16 hours of normal paid work time every year so our people can volunteer if they would like to do so. Our community service program is intended to encourage and support participation in community service activities that will contribute to the community and foster future growth and development needs.
Promotes from Within
We recognize that our employees are our greatest assets. So, when a new opportunity opens up, existing team members are the first ones we turn to when possible. Two thirds of our current staff has received an internal promotion with the company. Five out of six of our store managers were promoted to GM.
At Goldsboro Builders Supply and Family of Companies, we believe in our people and offering a helping hand to those in need. Through the GBS Benevolence Fund, we can do even more to help each other in a time of crisis. Through our donations, help, and support we celebrate the gift of giving and opportunity to provide much needed assistance to members of our Goldsboro Builders supply Family, one good deed at a time.
Workplace Care is a program that provides each employee with a Care Coach. A Care Coach will stop by your work site on a weekly basis offering a moment of encouragement. If you have something you want to discuss with your Care Coach, you may mention it at that time. Depending on the nature and urgency of your need, your Care Coach will coordinate a place and time to meet with you. This may be on your break, at lunch, after/ before work or by phone. Your Care Coach also provides purpose planning sessions as needed, as well as, seminars (financial, leadership & life issues).
Tuition Scholarship Program
University of Mount Olive has partnered with our organization and now offers a tuition scholarship for all employees. The tuition scholarship is applicable to all degrees offered by UMO.
