    The question I would have is how much more does it cost part-time employees for medical/dental/vision vs. full-time employees?  Every place that I have ever worked that offers these benefits to part-timers charge a lot more to part-timers than full-timers.

    Barnes and Noble announced over 2 years ago that they would stop all part-time benefits effective Jan 2014. In February of this year, they cut all part-time employees’ hours as to not run up against the Affordable Care Act mandate. Take them off your list.
