The Vacation and Paid Time Off were reasonable. However, it was always tough to be gone. You can be sure you're losing sales; not only because you're not there to sell, but because your fellow associates were taking your sales.
Working retail allows great flexibility so manipulating time off here and there is easy BUT working retail also limits when you can use vacation time. PTO was well compensated for both employees and managers (min pay plus average comm)
Only 6 paid holidays given.
You have to accumulate your paid time off hours throughout the year. You can also take time off no problem, they just wont pay you.
The PTO was actually good. I wish they hired more people to deal with sick employees. We were cut so thin, it always felt like a problem when someone called in sick.
PTO was wonderful - accrued every pay period.
"Black-out days". Managers change and don't honor others agreement, hint doc. Everything
Accrual level goes up with tenure at job. Overall average PTO was about a week off per year plus holiday pay.
Never seemed to get as much compared to hours worked.
You earn about 4 hours of PTO per 80 hours worked. You can take some unpaid vacation if the work load is slow and they don't need as many people.
