    Vacation time is based on seniority.

    It's great. I have no complaints except could get more time for Christmas and New Years but Thanksgiving is two days probably because President Lincoln from Illinois started that holiday.

    Very generous amount of time off. Gets better the longer you stick around.

    The State is very generous with the amount of paid time off, giving two personal days each year, every major holiday, plus election day, and several vacation days.

    The vacation time is increased with years of service and is a fair benefit.

    Generous but restrictive. Bidding on vacations is tough because seniority is everything

    You earn time based on the number of years worked. It is nice to get every state holiday off though.
