    Not much and be careful you will submit for time off and manage will not reply. At that it consider your fault and you will have to fight to get it straiten out.

    I liked vacation and paid time off. You really did not have to worry about your pay check it was always there and right on time.

    Time off is based on an accrual system. You are eligible for up to two weeks of vacation after 90 days, three weeks after 5 years and four weeks after 15 years.

    Current Sales Specialist for 2 1/2 years. This is retail: you can not take your vacation during big sales or during Holidays, which is (or should be) common sense. You can take time off right before or after, though. Pay attention to what you have accumulated and plan accordingly. Summer time vacation with the family or hunting season filling the freezer? You still have 10 months of time to take vacation(s).

    They promise you x amount of hours per year based on time in position, then refuse when you want to take it. And at the end of the year too bad. It's been lost. I lost 40 hours of vacation this past year because they refused me the time off.

    Instead of actually having a set benefit, you have to accumulate hours, so it is easy to go into the negative. It's like giving you a carrot on a stick, but one slice at a time.

    I was with Lowe's for 8 years and had 3 weeks vacation. They were pretty good about letting you take time off when you wanted except for when there was a big sales event - then it was all hands on deck. It was very rare to get a holiday off. Lowe's offered only 2 holidays off per year - Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

    When you work at Lowe's long enough you get more paid time off.
