    They went to a all in one and lump sick and PTO into one category. You earned time off as you worked. You could bank up to 120% of what you were allowed to earn based on years of service. Best part was the scheduler would find a replacement pharmacist to work while you were off, no guarantee of the skill set of said relief pharmacist (some were great and some were not, as with anywhere I've worked).

    You have to be with company more than a year to get paid time off or vacations.

    You get like 1 day off for every month you get. You get 10 min every week of personal time off.

    You will have paid time off after six months. And you probably don't have time off on most national break day.

    Pretty standard for a retail operation: major holidays are paid holidays, one personal day per year. Most stores are open on holidays though, so you may not get the time off. Selection process for work on holidays is not necessarily equitable.

    It's very beneficial to have paid time off. You start accruing it right away and can use it after 6 months.

    Can earn a lot of vacation depending on how much you work and how long you have worked there
