    Instead of Walgreens granting you certain number of days for vacation and paid time off, now you have to earn all that good stuff. They are based upon how many hours you have worked.

    Time off is not welcomed as it should be. Yes, they give you days but don't let you feel appreciated to take them.

    Paid vacation time is earned after only 6 months of employment; used to be after one year.

    Standard PTO plan as of 2014. Prior to that vacation time was granted at the beginning of the year based on your length of service.

    But they block some week of the year.

    Vacation and paid time off are considered the same hours at Walgreens. I believe the accrual rate is one paid day off per month or something similar.

    You get to use vacation time for when you want and it good to know use when you need time off for one day.

    Most recently vacation time and sick time all turned into a paid time off, which is great!
