    Not special. Two weeks and you need to accrue it

    The vacation accrual schedule is one of the best things SBG offers as far as benefits.

    Vacation time is standard for a typical American company but sick leave is really inadequate. One good winter cold and you have used all of your sick time for the year, so people often come in sick.

    Difficult to ask for time off due to being understaffed.

    Official policy is that employees may not take any vacation, personal time, sick time for the first 6 months.

    2 weeks vacation and 2 personal days for the first 5 years and then you get 3 weeks vacation. nothing more until 15 years
