The accrual system is clear and fair. Max is 4 weeks and there is a rollover allowed if it is not all used.
You start with three weeks and can progress all the way to five weeks of vacation in a short amount of time.
Generous amount of vacation time off and they even include a personal holiday for professional staff every year.
Your accrual rate caps out at around 11 hours per month
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.
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.
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.
As long as it doesn't affect the workflow, supervisors have no problem approving them.
