    Company makes you use your own PTO when office is closed for any reason. Like during a natural disaster or weather the office closed for days and make employees use their own PTO or not get paid for being off. This is really unfair as it forces you to use your PTO then you cannot take much needed vacation time. They do not care if you able to pay your bills if you are not paid, and also any additional times the office is closed they make sure you use your own PTO, like an additional holiday falling over a three day weekend. You will get the holiday but have to use 8 hours of your own earned time to get your full 40 hours. Also vacations are limited due to high staff turn over and management does not care whether you are given needed time off or not.

    PTO is front-loaded for the entire year. No separate sick leave, all one bank of hours. Bereavement leave does not count against PTO. Generous amount of time off that goes up with years of service.

    The days do not roll over and it's a use it or lose it scenario but you start out with 22 days plus 8 paid holidays. The 22 days are used for personal, vacation and sick days. After 5 years you bump up another 5 days so you get 35 Days off a year which is fantastic.

    They give you about 4 weeks of vacation and you get alternate days off with pay if you work holiday.

    It is now a "Use it or Lose it" policy. In operations we lose an average of 40 hrs per year due to coverage requirements.

    Receive all major holidays plus at least two weeks vacation all rolled into a PTO program. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that now you have to use it or lose it in a calendar year. Before they changed it a few years ago, you were allowed to roll over 280 hours from year to year. This was great because if you worked a lot of overtime and did not have the chance to use the hours, you could roll them. Now, you are just out of luck. Especially important to those who had year-end processes and could not take off at the end of the year. Associates were missing out on a benefit that there was no way they could judge based on the work load.
