    You do not apply, you wait till you get your cards in the mail. 12 months for health and I think 18 for dental.

    12 month for all benefits, 18 months for family benefits. I hope the next contract does not take away benefits for part time employees.

    It will not take benefits away for anyone. Might change a bit but they aren't going anywhere.

    Try and hold off for about 11 months. It flies by.

    Maybe it varies by area but in my area you have to accrue a certain number of hours worked within 90 days or something. Before I went full time I started as a part timer in 2009 (current contract) and my medical and dental kicked in after 5 months.
