    After being full-time for a few years you get 4.5 weeks off for vacation a year. 12 days of sick leave.

    Our vacation plan is sweet. I'm up to "5 weeks" paid vacation per year, plus we have 10 paid holidays and 1 paid Personal Holiday.

    It's probably the best I've experienced thus far.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Software Engineer in Seattle, Washington State

    The University of Washington has 10 paid holidays every year and 1 personal holiday; this helps guarantee some break from the usual routine throughout the year. Work from home is also allowed.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Fundraiser in Seattle, Washington State

    The usual 11 -12 days mandated by Federal and State holidays. The dirty secret of being a state employee is that a lot of folks take off early before a holiday or "flex" their Fridays in the summer.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Program Coordinator in Seattle, Washington State

    As long as it doesn't affect the workflow, supervisors have no problem approving them.

  • May 03, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Seattle, Washington State

    Get 5 weeks of vacation and 8 hours of sick per month

    Good if you are not a temporary employee.

  • Mar 13, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Administrative Coordinator in Seattle, Washington State

    A decent amount of leave as a first-year classified employee; however, I found it shocking that the week between Christmas and New Years is business-as-usual.
