Total Rewards

One of the great things about Central Garden & Pet is our total compensation package. Our benefits give you and your family financial and health protection—and peace of mind. We understand benefits are not one-size-fits-all. You choose from a variety of options to make them work for you. You also have access to a wellness program that can help you become your healthiest you. Eligibility for benefits varies and may be based on hours worked and location.


Health care needs are different for everyone. That’s why Central Garden & Pet offers multiple options for Medical, Dental, and Vision, so you can choose the coverage level best-suited to your needs and budget. We also offer a variety of voluntary benefits to give you peace of mind with covering out-of-pocket costs if the unexpected occurs.

Income Security

Let your money grow without lifting a finger with Central Garden & Pet’s 401(K) Retirement Plan. We offer eligible employees the Investment Growth Plan – a 401(k) savings plan – to help you plan for your future. Central Garden & Pet has also made it a priority to give you the ability to acquire Life Insurance.


Central Garden & Pet is committed to your health and wellness! We offer a free, confidential wellness program available to all employees and families. Continuous learning is encouraged at Central Garden & Pet, through our on-demand learning platform and other great resources.
