As a sales person, you weren't encouraged to take your PTO, as it would affect your sales goal for the month. Also, you are not allowed to take PTO during the end of each quarter.
Unlimited PTO, which with the right manager can be a great thing. There are no guidelines with what's a "reasonable" amount of PTO, which can take time to get used to.
Vacation is 240hrs, which you can never take. if you take more PTO, you will be fired.
PTO covers both sick and vacation time and I believe was somewhere on the order of 10 days per year (accrued).
They offered general paid time off to be used for either sick time or vacation time. It was nice to have the option to use it for either.
Limit to 240 hours for both sick and vacation hours
Offers vacation days if overworked during demanding time of quarter
Salaried workers are on a "flexible time off" arrangement which is empirically shown to reduce the number of days that people take off. This change was driven by the desire to save money by no longer needing to pay employees for their unused accrued PTO days when the employees leave the company. // Hourly employees will earn PTO days (I think 10 days a year). These PTO days are supposed to cover sickness as well. If you're in sales/service you'll have to work most holidays and will get five "floating holidays" a year to compensate.
Correct and rich PTO, sick day also.
Good amount of time given. Comes as a pay cut if you're relying on overtime.
