You don't accrue any time the first year. Time increases with longevity but caps if you don't use it.
19 days paid time off
Difficult to find 4 weeks paid vacation.
Having to schedule vacation in November of the year prior to taking the vacation is ok, and can request days off as long as it is 2 weeks ahead of the time you are requesting.
They actually provide PTO which is nice
Your vacation is acrued by how many hours you work and it takes too many hours to build up
You earn it slowly, and if you take a week you only get 35 hours.
Being part time I only accrue paid time off after working more than 1,000 hours in a year. If you work in a store that is short on hours like mine it is pretty much impossible to get paid time off time anymore for part time.
It takes 5 years to gain an additional week of vacation
You got it if you were full time, Part time got nothing! Your suppose to get some many days a month towards vaca but I never got any cause they said I didnt work enough, BUT I had co-workers tell me that wasnt right cause they were getting paid days and they were parttime...I think I was duped and treated unfairly! And as far as calling the 800 # for being treated unfair is a joke, I called that and was treated like it was MY fault, I hung up and vowed never to do that again cause it was a terrible experience.
