Continuing your education is a great way to advance your career. Here’s some great news: Evergreen will help you if you want to pursue a degree or professional certificate in a field related to our business. Here’s how it works:
Evergreen will reimburse a team member up to a maximum of $5,000.00 per year for continuing education through an accredited program such as a university, community, or technical college that either offers growth in an area related to one’s current position or that may lead to promotional opportunities. This education may include college credit courses, continuing education unit courses, seminars, and certification tests that are job-related. Full-time, regular team members who have completed six-months of employment are eligible for the Tuition Assistance Program.
Expenses eligible for 100% reimbursement include tuition, registration and required fees such as building use and lab fees. Books required to satisfactorily complete a course are reimbursed at 75% of their cost.
Other miscellaneous expenses, such as parking, supplies, social dues, athletic fees, computer access charges, etc., are not reimbursable. Company reimbursement will be reduced by any other financial aid that does not have to be repaid (such as the GI Bill, scholarships, and grants). Reimbursement is limited to actual expenses.
Team members must secure a passing grade of “B” or its equivalent or obtain a certification to receive reimbursement. Expenses must be validated by receipts and a copy of the final grade or certification received.
Regardless of where you work within Evergreen, from recycling and manufacturing to management and customer service, this program is for you!
