10 Things You Should Negotiate Other
After you've been offered a position, here are the top ten benefits that you can and should ask for during the negotiation process (according to Salary.com)
1) A Better Title - Let’s face it: the title “secretary” just isn’t sexy. Nor does it look amazing on your resume. But “corporate executive assistant” sounds a little better.
2) A Wardrobe Allowance - You can petition for a clothing stipend to be built into your contract -- especially if you’re in the position of meeting with lots of high-end power clients.
3) Transportation Reimbursement Calculate the travel expenses you plan to incur each month, and ask for a stipend to help ease this expense
4) Housing Subsidy - If you will be commuting a few hours into work each day, it’s a good idea to ask for some sort of housing subsidy.
5) Daycare Reimbursement Babysitting costs can be a killer, especially when they can almost eat up an entire paycheck.
Defined Benefit Plan
• At least 7-10 years of experience working with Defined Benefit plans

ERISA Training Needed
I work in the benefits call center for a very large corporate client on the client escalation team. I was asked to listen to and summarize an incoming call because the employee had filed a complaint with the client over the handling of her issue.
Review of the call: the employee called in and asked several questions about her benefits but was not satisfied with the call center rep's responses. The employee, becoming increasingly frustrated, asked the rep "Do you know anything about ERISA?"
The rep's reply was "Ma'am, we have over 300 people working in this call center, I don't know everybody. How am I supposed to know WHO ERISA is?"
While the client admitted to being amused by this response, the rep was immediately sent for remedial basic benefits training.
