BB&T recognizes the importance of achieving and maintaining a balance between your career and your personal life. We understand that you have needs beyond the workplace, which is why we offer the benefits below. Our work/life benefits include paid time away from work (including short-term absence days, holidays and vacation), time for parents to be involved in their children's school, a scholarship program, an Employee Assistance Program and more.
Short-Term Absence Pay
BB&T short-term absence pay provides salary continuation to eligible employees who need to be absent from work due to a number of reasons. Short-term absence pay may be used for personal illness or injury, maternity leave, caring for a family member incapable of self care, bereavement and more.
BB&T observes the Federal Reserve holiday schedule, which means 10 paid holidays are included in the BB&T work schedule each year. Some subsidiaries follow different holiday schedules.
BB&T provides a competitive vacation package which allows employees the time necessary for mental, physical and emotional relaxation. The number of vacation days an employee may take is based on years of service, and increases with tenure.
Employees receive paid time off to serve on jury duty.
Parental Involvement in Schools
To support parents with their involvement in the education of their children, BB&T provides time they may use to participate in school activities, such as attending parent-teacher conferences.
The BB&T scholarship program provides up to 10 scholarships each year to children of BB&T employees. The program and the selection process are administered by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
Employee Assistance Program
In addition to offering clinical counseling services, the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) features a number of work and life services. These include childcare and eldercare assistance, financial services, legal services, identity theft recovery services and daily living services.
BB&T employees receive free or discounted rates on a wide array of banking, investment and insurance services.
