Unique Benefits

But wait, there’s more

At UBT, we offer an employment experience to meet the diverse needs of all associates and family members. In addition to competitive salaries, incentives, generous bonuses, 401(k), and profit sharing, here are some of the unique programs available to associates.

  • Developing Leaders

    Leadership Developement Programs

    Our future leaders are already here

    UBT offers a Leadership Development Program for non-officers and an Advanced Leadership Development Program for officers, in which leadership-minded associates hone their unique talents, gain exposure to senior leaders, and learn new skills. Newly promoted managers and managers new to UBT increase their managerial expertise through Human Resources’ Manager Boot Camp. Additionally, UBT sponsors a Young Professional Group where individuals from UBT can network and gain knowledge of the organization.

Tuition Reimbursement

Continue your education — and your career

With UBT’s tuition reimbursement program, you can work for a company that values your education enough to pay for it. Earning and learning are a powerful combo, and if you’re a regular full-time associate, you’re eligible for up to $5,000 annual reimbursement for preapproved classes (tuition, books, and fees are included). Part-time associates are eligible for $2,500 annually, too.

Free Lunch Program

Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch?

Free up your budget and take back some of your precious time, because lunch is served. As part of UBT’s Wellness program, free healthy buffet lunches are available at all Lincoln and Omaha campuses Monday–Thursday, including a fresh and delicious salad bar. Meal prep is a real cinch when you’ve got four meals a week already taken care of — with plenty of healthy options to fill your plate (and your stomach).
