Retirement Savings Plan

Employees are automatically enrolled in our savings plan on their first day of service. HRL provides a contribution to each employee account based on your age. You may contribute up to 20% of pay with a generous 100% company match on the first 4% of your contributions. HRL offers more than 23 mutual fund options that allow diversified investment opportunities.


Employees receive an average of thirteen paid holidays per year. Traditionally, the company observes a year-end holiday break between Christmas Day and New Years Day.

HRL offers employees a flexible paid time off bank. Employees receive five days upon hire and accrue 10 additional days in the first year, 15 days per year after one year of service, 20 days per year after five years of service and 25 days per year after 20 years of service.
