Let’s pretend you see a business called ABCD$$!! Store in your local corner in your town; you understand the ABCD$$!! Store has a good benefits package – so you apply and accept a job position at the ABCD$$!! Store at your local corner; you find the benefits offered by the ABCD$$!! Store at your local corner is different than the ABCD$$!! Store organization you know – let’s say the ABCD$$!! Store at your local corner has a better benefits package than you expected.
How can organization with the same name have two different benefit packages – one answer can be franchises.
A franchise where an owner will create a new organization using the same name of a different organization; the owner may pay a fee to use the different organization name; the owner may gain in name recognition if the different organization known to the public. The owner may have freedom in some areas on operating the new business – some of these new areas can be having a different benefit package. This is one way you can have two different benefits packages from two different organizations that have the same name.
When exploring a particular job of interest, look at the benefit package – you can see if that benefits package matches your needs.
Two organizations may have the same name – but the organizations may be different. The different organizations may operate differently – including having different benefit packages offered to people. You may want to explore what benefits package comes with the new job position before accepting the job position – that way you can determine if the new job position matches your needs.
