The best thing about the vacation and time off is that when you are there for over 15 years, you earn 8 hours of annual leave every pay period.
start at 104hrs a year extends to 6hr a pay period (26 per year) at 3 years and to 8hrs at 15 years, also 104 sick hours per year for career, can hold 240 hrs carryover vacation time and no limit to carryover for sick. 10 holidays a year.
Accrued quickly, able to use with minimal notice
Since PTO is earned at the rate of 2-1/2 hours per week, employees always know how much time off they have in their bank.
at the US Army Corps of Engineers one of the perks is the Vacation & Paid Time Off which is fair in accordance to employee seniority. One accrues 4 hours per pay-period and then 8 hour per pay period after the 10 years of service.
Vacation leave starts at 4hrs/pay period and increase to 6hrs at 3 years, then 8hrs after 15 years. Max 240 carryover. Sick leave earned at 4hrs/pp, no limit. Credit for saved sick leave at retirement.
4 weeks after 3 years with 3 weeks of sick leave. Let you bank up to 6 weeks.
Non traditional holidays are paid time off. Columbus Day, MLK Day, President's Day, etc.
It is very positive and durable.
The time off was about average compared to other companies. We got 11 paid holidays, up to 30 days of annual leave, and unlimited sick leave, if not used.
