Yes, the paid time off was okay I guess I never had any problems with getting it at the end of the year or when every.
It accumulates at a good rate but not often enough staff available so that you can use it & certainly not on a short notice
Great benefits for all employees
They were generous with PTO offering and allowing me to use that time as needed. This was increased as my time with the company increased.
When terminated, they would not give me my 7 days of paid time off!
They are very compatible and understanding
Basically, you can get sick once a year, or take your kids to the doctor or teacher conferences, OR you can take a couple days vacation. But if you take more than that, they will write you up. And if you do get sick, you have to cover your shift. And if you can't cover it, you have to come in anyway. Even if you are contagious and working directly with older people. Because they don't really care about anyone's wellbeing. They just don't want to have to cover your shift.
Accrued PTO pretty slow overall.
It was 40 hours of accumulated PTO, meaning that you capped at 40 (you got a higher cap the longer you were with the company) and could have no more than that at any one time but if you used some your could re-accumulate it. The only flaw was that you really had to make sure HR put you in the system as a full time employee because they were quite bad at putting people in correctly, and I actually lost out on over 6 months worth of PTO accumulation due to an HR error that I hadn't noticed.
I like the PTO time when I'm sick I can take time off or vacation when I need it
