    I've worked a year as a part=time employee and have not accumulated "time of or vacation hours"

    Many coworkers took the standard 2 week offered, which is very low considering some of these people are management level

    If your in a commission spot they pay the vacation pay by the hour and at a rate of your average hourly take home including commissions.

    Earn as you go but you can not carry over unused vacation

    You can buy an additional 10 days off but it needs to be approved through your manager.

    takes a long time to get enough vacation to take and then there are blackout periods when you would most like to vacation (its like using your frequent flier miles)

    Best: Vacation days build quickly after years with the company.
    Worst: For the first 3-5 years you barely build any vacation time.

    As part time employee, the vacation time off policy is fair. Ability to work enough hours to earn time may be a problem.
