    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

    You do get vacation if your full time. Good luck trying to use it tho. Theres always an excuse why it cant be used.

    Paid time off is useless when there is no one to cover for you so your vacation is not approved.

    Too many black out periods during the time that you really want to take vacations. Then you have to go through a approval process.

    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.
