    Paid Time Off began in 2014 as a replacement of the older Sick, Vacation time structure. I prefer the PTO system for better use of all time without "losing" sick time if you aren't sick.

    Pretty comparable to other employers, but Walgreens doesn't have separate buckets for sick time off vs regular vacation time off. so, when you're sick, you basically have to take away from your potential vacation time.

    Confusing. and even if you are eligible its a nightmare getting your manager to approve it

    PTO bucket system used, hours accrued every pay period and can be used for vacation or sick leave. Black out months are Sept-Jan. and no one is allowed vacation during that time.

    Been at the company for 10 years and I get 5 weeks off every year. They start you off with 2 weeks a year

    It takes a long time to get more than 2 weeks of vacation

    Walgreens recently switched to PTO. You accrue based on length of employment and job classification.

    Vacation accrues throughout the work year, and is based on average hours worked and length of employment, increasing at years 1, 3, 5, 10, and 25.

    Standard. 2 weeks at 5 years, 3 weeks at 10 years. but has all converted to PTO. You no longer get sick days.

    Not very good with vacation in general. They make you work more days that other employers would normally give you off such as the day after Christmas. They also make you fight for vacation time if you come in as an outsider and pUT you right back at the bottom of the vacation pool no mater your previous status
