They will honor your vacation requests. Supervisors can be tricky though at making sure you miss your opportunities to take it when you actually want it.
Great vacation packages. However, if you have a lap top you are expected to be on it daily. That's not written any where but that is what is expected. If you are out sick or for other things, the same expectation applies. This is the "norm" almost every where now in Corporate America. Alcoa isn't doing something everyone else is.
Three weeks paid vacation + unlimited sick days + 10 holidays
Vacation and PTO was good - although some people abused it and it seemed like they had endless vacation
New hires receive 2 weeks paid vacation and 40 hours of personal time. However, if you use most or all of your personal time, it is reflected negatively on your review. WHY GIVE IT TO US IF WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO USE IT?
They do not offer paternity leave
we got all major holidays off and it uses to be shut down at christmas for the week with pay but they took that away
No paid time off, only vacation, which is also dependent on the number of years you have vested with the company. You can earn up to 4 weeks, but it takes 15 -18 years.
Only got a week of vacation and sick time for the first couple years of working there.
Decent vacation and paid time off. Improved drastically with years with company.
