Annual leave accrual amount is based on years served. You start at 4 hr of leave for every full pay period. After 15 years you accrue 8 hr every pay period. You can carry over 440 hours each year.

Not bad amount of accrual but days for vacation go by seniority so plan to work everything popular like holidays if needed when low seniority

To the very best it is that the vacations are always given and if not they are paid well in service. The worst is that they tend to be complex in nature.

Ten paid holidays, 2 weeks of vacation for the first 3 years then goes to 3 weeks. Plenty of sick days as well. Never a problem when taking off, even if requested the night before.
