For a new employee (less than 3 years) you only accrue 4 hours sick/leave per pay period for the first 3 years which breaks down to about only 2.4 weeks time off per year and it has to be earned.
Based on time in service, the amount accumulated is adjusted. If a veteran, amount is higher than non veterans. The annual days of leave a year are pretty good, as well as annual days of sick leave.
