    Typical 40 hour a week paid vacation, after a year of working there, and your weeks increase by how long you are with the company. I really don't remember the pto very well, but I believe it was 8 hours every 2 weeks, but I'm not sure.

    The have a rolling PTO program. You can accumulate a max of 150% of your vacation time before staring to loose it. At 1-4 years, you get like 22 days, at 5 years you get 25 days, annually plus one floating holiday.

    Vacation and sick days are combined together. Very hard to earn PTO if you've not been with the company for quite awhile.

    I think they need to improve their vacation and paid time off benefits. As a full-time employee, I earn about 1-2 hours of paid time off for every two weeks, which doesn't equate to very much. You pretty much need to work all the time and not have any sick days (they take a hit at your PTO if you miss a day) in order to earn enough PTO to have a vacation.

    As long as you have the time, then you can take it off

    Walgreens has switched over to "PTO" time and the accrual rate is good. I have been with the company for 7 years and I have 3 weeks off every year, plus sick time.

    its so hard to get approved even when you have accumulated time off. if you are a good employee who works hard they will never give you time off. Its Just a headache.

    Hours accrue as you work, and the amount is based on how many years you've been with the company.
