    we moved from sick/vacation time to Paid Time Off. Once you reach 18 years with the company, the PTO accumulates monthly at a rate equivalent to 6 weeks vacation

    PTO starts at 15 days per year. No sick leave.

    Paid time off is great, however could use more paid time off when u first start off.

    We get one "floating holiday" we bid for each month and also get about 10 vacation days depending on your start date. This goes up as your seniority rises.

    two weeks paid vacation and the ability to take unpaid time off

  • Mar 23, 2017

    Generous PTO for all level employees

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Dallas, Texas

    They were not competitive with a 2-week grant for new employees with a week of sick time. They just moved to a much more generous PTO policy that's accrued, and the first year accumulates 3 weeks.
