The policy is outdated. Fortunately my plant has 5 additional floating holidays for salaried employees. But overall the vacation accrual is ancient and not competitive.
GP offers an excellent vacation and paid time off policies.
Approved vacation time is what ever the employee makes of it. It is fairly easy to submit vacation requests.
I was able to negotiate three weeks to start. About 3 floating holidays a year.
Vacation is prorated through out the year and they reserve the right to not allow. Systems are set up to minimize cost if you leave the company. Don't count on getting all your vacation.
Standard Vacation based on years of service, started with 2 weeks
Standard vacation and time off.
Well.....a freshly graduated engineer entering as an ELE gets 10 working days off. After 5 years you get 15 working days off. After 10 years you get 20 working days off. And after 30 years you get 30 working days off. I'm probably a bit off at the tail end of this scale since I only made it to 5 before I left. But, if you quit, and you have unused vacation days (which accumulates, you don't get them all in one shebang) then they will pay you for not having used them; on the flip side of that coin, if you use all your vacation days in a calendar year and you leave the company before the calendar year is up, you have to pay them back for those used but non accumulated days via docked pay.
2 weeks starting with floating holidays.
Not much vacation for employees under 4 years
