What everyone in the Palmer-Donavin family has in common is a commitment to ownership.

We have two mottos at Palmer-Donavin: Service Is Our Most Important Product and Do It Right the First Time. Get used to hearing them because we take them to heart. Making those mottos a reality requires knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated employees. That’s why we put together one of the best benefits packages anywhere and our efforts have paid dividends...literally; so much so that our average employee has over 9 years of service with the company.
The rest of our benefits are as follows:

  • Reward for Profit: Quarterly bonuses based on the profitability of the company, part of being in an ESOP
  • Health Insurance: We have three distinct plans to choose from, both with options for dental and vision coverage
  • Paid Time Off: Employees begin earning PTO benefits immediately
  • 401(k): We offer 401(k) benefits including a company match and a Roth feature after 6 months of service
  • Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)
  • Employee Discounts
  • Company Paid Life Insurance: Palmer-Donavin provides life insurance for you and your dependents free of charge
  • Disability Insurance
  • Bereavement Leave
  • Civic Leave or Jury Duty


Because we’re an ESOP, our management philosophy is based on employee empowerment and an open door. We value open communication between employees and managers and welcome your feedback, input, and ideas. We’re all on the same team, working toward the same goal, and every person is essential to the success of our company.
