Perks and Programs

We asked O'NEILL'S POOLS to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Life Insurance: $75,000 life insurance policies are available to all full time employees after 90 days of employment, 100% covered by O'Neill's.
  • Serve Our City Weekends: Volunteer work opportunities offered multiple times per year. Employees partner with local non-profits and offer a helping hand and unique skill set to our neighbors in need. Employees are paid for their time and have the option to donate their wage for the day to the organization we are serving. Families, significant others welcome and we love getting to know one another better this way and together we have been able to do some serious good! Matching shirts say things like "Service is my superpower" and "I brake for high-fives".
  • Water Guardians: Safety Ambassadors: Our team has been trained in various programs concerning water safety and partner with Colin's Hope, a local drowning prevention non-profit at many community events. Being in over 400 backyards with pools and spas, our team helps save lives by equipping homeowners and families with educational tools and in-person programs. Unique to O'Neill's Pools, The Backyard Safety Checklist is a service we offer free of charge to all clients and ANY resident of Lakeway as a public service.
  • Aflac Supplemental Insurance: Accident, Cancer,Critical Illness, Short Term Disability, Dental and Vision plans available to all full time employees after 90 days with a very small monetary contribution by the employee.
  • Taco Tuesday: Breakfast tacos and coffee provided at the weekly team meeting. Because tacos make topics like chemical safety so much better and we believe that great customer service begins with a tasty breakfast from the best place in town.
  • O'Neill's H2O Connection: H2O: 2 parts Heart, 1 part Obsession. We deeply care for our team and our community. We are obsessed with water care. We know that at work, at home and in our community, what we do each day makes a difference and we have to decide what kind of difference we want to make. We care so much about awakening the difference makers in each of us that we recently gave everyone in the company $1/hr raise for two months to explore what makes it a great day at work. Is it work/life balance for you? Is it meaningful connection? Is it knowing that you are a problem solver and water chemistry wizard? Is knowing that your team has your back? YES. We discovered all of that. We celebrate your birthday, know your favorite comfort food and we'll ask about that concert because we care. That's the H2O way.
  • Party Barge: Once a year we rent a party barge and spend the day on Lake Travis with our families. BBQ, music, water slides and cannon balls bring this water obsessed crew great joy.
  • Crystal Clear Career Advancement: Ready to dive in to your career? We'll help you develop the skills you need! In fact you'll be swimming in opportunity. We want each person on board to reach personal and career goals. We have a clear road map for advancement within O'Neill's and offer a variety of educational opportunities (local and Nationwide) to advance your overall career. We offer paid time off for career related classes to all full time employees and we pay for trade certification courses after one year of employment.
