Amazon.com's salaried employees earn two weeks of vacation time in their first year of employment and three weeks of vacation in their second year. Hourly employees earn 40 hours of vacation time in their first year of employment and 80 hours in their second year. All employees earn six personal days per year.
An employee accrues time off every 2 weeks, an hour and change of personal time and an hour and change of vacation. You also start with 10 unpaid (UPT)hours every quarter, however if these 10 hours run out , you will be terminated. The UPT works in increments of hours, not minutes; so if you're 7 minutes late you just lost an hour............ You can change the upt to pers time to avoid this.
Not terrible. First year is 1 week vacation (earned bi-weekly) Second year is 2 weeks. One day unpaid given quarterly, Two weeks paid time off given yearly. Not awesome, but not bad. Can be taken anytime, even after you miss a day at work. That's unusual.
overall vacation time is less compared to industary standard. also the other leaves are not at par to other comanies
paid time off is great because it adds hours every paycheck
Competitive packages against other similar companies.
Vacation time accrued extremely slowly, about 1.5 hrs per pay period (so around 15 weeks for 1 day of paid vacation). This rate doubled if you stayed for more than a year. PTO accrued more quickly, but was capped at 48 hours per year. After you had accrued 48 hours, you would have to wait until the following January for it to start accruing again, regardless of how much you actually used.
6.6, 10 and 13.3 hours a month after 0, 1 and 5 years
The vacation is basic to start. After one year, another week is added. There is also PTO. But, that serves as sick leave if you need to be out for that reason. Only six paid holidays is low.
happy with vacation and paid time off benefit
Dont like the fact that they never told me how much time I got but you do get a decent amount of it.
