    Generous vacation time off based on years of service. Paid time off is great as well.

    Great PTO benefits. Start with a week, and continually increases, with rollover availability.

    2 weeks minimum but if you are part time probably will get paid 20 hours for those 2 weeks

    They only give 7 days per year, but they do give you paid holidays which is a plus. Wish they gave more days than 7 in an entire calendar year.

    You don't get any vacation the first year. Beginning your second year of employment, you get 1 week vacation. After working 3 years, a second week of vacation is added. There are long periods where vacations are not approved. In Florida, you are not allowed to take any vacation days during 'season', which runs from Nov.1 until May 1. If you need time off during this period, you can use sick/personal days or you have to take off without pay (both are frowned upon by management and they don't hesitate to let you know!) Also, everyone must work on inventory days, usually in August and February.

    Yearly there are 7 paid holidays, a week of sick time (which gets paid out in check if not used). Vacation starts with 2 weeks and gets a week longer every 5 years
