Superior offers a competitive benefits program including major medical insurance, long term disability, 401(k) profit sharing plan, employee stock purchase plan and tuition reimbursement. In addition to traditional insurance coverage, we now offer day-one access to limited health and dental insurance for part-time, seasonal and new employees who don’t yet qualify for Superior group insurance coverage. Our benefit plans are continually reviewed and regularly enhanced to respond to our employees’ needs and concerns.


Superior offers medical, dental, vision and life insurance benefits for all regular, full-time employees and their dependents. The company also provides accidental death and disability, salary continuation and long-term disability insurance to eligible employees at no cost.

401(k) Plan

We offer a 401(k) savings and retirement plan, which provides benefits for substantially all employees who meet minimum age and length of service requirements. Eligible employees are able to contribute up to 75 percent of their compensation, subject to the federal dollar limit. For plan participants, we contribute a total match on employee contributions of up to 4 percent of their compensation, with a 100 percent match on the first 3 percent of compensation deferred and a 50 percent match on deferrals between 3 percent and 5 percent of compensation.

Effective March 1, 2005, we adopted the POOLCORP Deferred Compensation Plan, a non-qualified deferred compensation plan. The plan allows certain employees who occupy key management positions to defer salary and bonus amounts, and provides a matching contribution similar to that provided under our 401(k) plan to the extent that a participant’s contributions to the 401(k) plan are limited by IRS non-discrimination limitations. The total company matching contribution provided to a participant under the 401(k) plan and the POOLCORP Deferred Compensation Plan combined for any one year may not exceed 4 percent of a participant’s salary and bonus.
