Nevada offers sunshine and recreational opportunities abound including golfing, biking, off-roading, hiking, skiing, and fishing. Nevada's beautiful landscape and thriving economy are just a few of the reasons to join the Silver State's workforce! Additional benefits include medical, dental, life and disability insurance programs; participation in the public employees' retirement plan; 11 paid holidays each year; and accrual of 3 weeks of annual leave and 3 weeks of sick leave each year.
