You get it all up front in February every year. One week the first year (unless you were hired in the last quarter of the previous year, then it’s only 3 days for the entire next year), 2 weeks from year two, and 3 weeks after 5 years.
You can ever take a day off because you can't hire employees to cover your shift or help run the store so any time you get is not used
They makeup excuses for needing you to not take it
You do get vacation if your full time. Good luck trying to use it tho. Theres always an excuse why it cant be used.
PTO is 5 days a year which isn't awful
Paid time off is useless when there is no one to cover for you so your vacation is not approved.
Had vacation time when I left they took the sick time even though I feel like it was earned already
Too many black out periods during the time that you really want to take vacations. Then you have to go through a approval process.
its there for full time employees only
It used to be work X amount of hours to receive Y amount of time. I believe you get all of your vacation time upfront at the start of the year now.
