    Yes you get them but however you have to accrue them little by little and allowed only a certain amount and have a certain time it has to be used in or you lose it you don't get paid for it you just lose it.

    Par for the course. Not bad, but not good either.

    Vacation and time off is well described and not overly regulated. Extra comp days are occasionally given as compensation after busy times.

    it takes time to build up your vacation time, so you do not have much for the first couple of years

    Vacation after your first year goes up to two weeks which is accrued over the entire year so by the end of December you will have your 2 weeks. There is NO sick time. You have two buckets of personal time that you can use that total to about two weeks as well but once they are gone and you are an hourly employees there is 3 strikes and your out system which tends to lead to many people being fired.
