    The vacation time is the standard 2 weeks. But what I did like is that you could buy back an additional 2 weeks if you wanted to, which I took advantage of several times. I also was refunded outstanding vacation days when I left.

    They give full time 40 hr. a week employees just the benefit equivalence of a 30 hr. a week employee so you only get paid 7 hrs. a day off versus 8 hrs.

    You have to get them approved two weeks in advanced. You are not allowed to go on vacation during the holidays.
