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.
Only 1 week after a years worth of work
The best thing is that I need these vacation time paid to enjoy with my family and friends
Best is you accumulate it quickly and worst is you have to keep a very close eye on it cause managers like to take hours you worked off your timecard and replace those hours with your vacation hours so they don't go over payroll
They dont like it when you try to take extra time off to take care of personal matters or health issues. Takes a long time to accrue vacation time. There is no paid time off..
Best thing is that they offer it, worst thing is that you will not get it if you leave the company. If you do not submit a two weeks notice in advance they will not give you plaything.
It is very satisfying knowing that I get to spend time with my family and still get paid.
