No. 3 Medium Company: Reitmeier Mechanical
Offering extensive health benefits to employees is an essential part of business to Reitmeier Mechanical in Tualatin. After all, many of the company's 58 employees work in dangerous industrial construction areas. But if an employee's car also happens to need some care the company's on-site mechanic will gladly take a look free of charge. Burn a lot of gas commuting to work in the morning? The company picks up the bill for many. And best of all, "There's a free soda machine and a large basket of candy bars at the reception desk," says an employee. "And there are water bottles and frozen water for the hot-weather days. These benefits may seem miniscule, but they are greatly appreciated. I have never worked for a company that treats me like I get treated here."
