    Second to none, Pappa Amazon is going to make sure you're notified often when there's VTO (Voluntary time off); there'll even be entire weeks off sometimes if you get it each day. Regarding Paid time off you have about 20-30 hours a year at Tier 1, and Vacation starts at 10 hours 'handed' to you on day 1, and it builds up over time. So you could literally take a 'day vacation' on your second week -- who else does that?

    When an employee begins, they are allotted a number of UPT (unpaid time) hours to use at their discretion which rolls over every 6 months. I adore my job.
