    You get a bunch of time off. Especially if you have been there over 20 years. 4 hours every two weeks to start, then 6 hours, then 8.

    My sister is trying to get time off for my wedding. Request was put in 4+ months in advance and she was told it will be impossible and will just have to switch shifts. With the wedding being out of the country travel time and jetlag will create too many days to switch with other employees. Wedding is also around the holidays. I'm very disappointed, but hoping something will change. Can't have a wedding without my own sister there! Any advise would be appreciated!!

    You WILL work all the holidays everyone else has off, and if you don't know about, for example, the date of a wedding in the November of the year before, you will. not. get. leave.
