    Barely any holidays, but you get an OK amount of time off. If your manager is cool then it should be ok.

    Public holiday and vacation schedule at amazon is probably one of their worst benefits.

    Vacation is accrued based on how much you work. The longer you are there the faster is accrues. You max out accrual rate after 4 years.

    You have it from the day you start! You get 3 hours of vacation to start and 10 hours of PTO to start and accrue more each pay period.
