    Based on time worked, you recieve PTO and sick time.

    It is very confusing how many years it takes to advance your PTO level.

    For those who work hard, they can earn PTO by hourly on certain dates.

    Standard right out of the gate and gets better the longer you're there.

    Takes a while to earn your PTO. Can be very hard to get time off approved depending on the season.

    PTO Accrues based on your tenure; 1 hour of PTO for every 19.5 hours worked for the first 5 years; 1 for every 17 hours for years 5-8, 1 hour for every 15.5 hours from years 8-10.

    you accrue PTO more the longer you are their but depending on your position its hard to take, they don't approve easily.

    Once you become eligible, it'll be great. PTO pay is based on the average of your earning. More you sell, your PTO gets better. Time Off is very flexible, technically, you can take it any time as long as you notify to your manager. (you must establish your creditiblity first on your job)

    The bad thing about vacation is that it's really hard to get time off if you work in a department with little employees. It's hard to get off major holidays, and most of the time they are blocked off unless you have been working them for a long time and have a good relationship with management.
