A ton of paid time off. I get 5 weeks total
Great benefits, as you work more years you get more vacation and sick time hours.
Same as other companies. You start accumulating days off and they will give it to you.
The vacation and paid time off was awesome
After 5 years you will be at 3 weeks of vacation and you earn anywhere from 2-3 hours a pat check in personal time off.
Great benefit, wish vacation was more for tenured employees
You can save your days off for next year.
the best thing is you get plenty of vacation/sick time. The worst thing is the November/December black out date where you cannot take vacation.
They just converted from lump sum at anniversary for PTO/Sick to accrual over time. Much more manageable and they changed their sick policy as well to compensate. The vacation is given 1 week at 1 year, 2 weeks at 2, 3 weeks at 5, 4 weeks at 10, 5 weeks at 15 or 20 I can't remember.
Very reasonable when asking for time off.
