Perks and Programs

We asked JM Bullion to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Weekly Happy Hour: JM Bullion hosts happy hour every Thursday and provides wine, beer, soda, and snacks. We encourage our team to spend time together to get to know each other.
  • Company Outings: JM Bullion hosts company outings every 6-8 weeks. This allows employees to have fun and to socialize with each other outside of the work environment. Some of the things we have done include bowling, golfing, painting, and an obstacle course. Spouses and friends are occasionally included.
  • Breakfast & Lunch: Lunch is catered every Wednesday. We also provide bagels and cream cheese every Monday morning. Whenever we get extremely busy we order lunch for everyone.
  • Floating Holiday: To make up for the fact that Black Friday is a big retail day each year where we must work, we offer our employees a floating holiday to use at their discretion.
  • Promote From Within: We always try to promote from within whenever possible. New jobs are announced internally before they are made public.
  • Rangers Tickets: JM Bullion buys season tickets to the Texas Rangers and we make them available to employees.
  • League Play: We started playing Indoor Kickball as a team last December with an Indoor Kickball League. We played every Thursday for 8 weeks and came in 2nd. We are looking forward to choosing another league to be a part of this year, because this helped in building camaraderie and encouraged teamwork. JM Bullion pays all fees associated with the League.
  • Hour of Dedication: Employees have the opportunity to schedule an hour of their shift each week (this is paid time) to build and develop their skills or to read a book of their personal choice. We even have a growing internal library in our front lobby.
  • Monthly Birthday Celebrations: Every month the Vice President hosts a company-wide meeting where he gives individual shout outs to all birthday celebrants and we provide a birthday cake. Additionally, an email announcement is sent and Starbucks gifts cards are hand-delivered to each person on their birthday.
  • Standing Desks: Each month, one lucky employee receives a Varidesk delivered directly to his/her desk. We even have an assigned helper to setup the desk for the employee.
