When I was interviewing for my current job, I was told "there's a one year waiting period before you can enter our retirement plan." One year later I asked again and was told "Sorry, because you were hired in February it's actually a 16-month waiting period." 4 months later they only put $500 into my account. I complained about this and they said "Sorry, we only put money into the account at the end of the year." So I ended up waiting 22 months to actually start in the program! HR was very apologetic but was not about to negotiate.
