    Few paid holiday due to retail environment. 5 or 6 tops. Officially, most people get about 10 days of vacation, but in practice it's at the discretion of individual managers.

    Very little vacation and paid time off were given. Plus lots of working hours for full time employees.

    The company started offering unlimited PTO. Not sure if anyone had time to take more than a few days of PTO.

    OK - you have to earn it each year in order to use it. If you use more than you earned during the year and are terminated, you have to pay it back.

    Meets the standard in vacation days and paid time off. They do not have "sick days" , they call them "personal days" which you can use as sick days, doctor visits, your child is home sick....

    It is not really tracked so you could take time off whenever you want.

    Vacation and paid time off. You accrue time for the vacation time and the paid time off days you only start with one then after a year you will get two more to use through out the year.
