    Average for industry, not bad, not great, they are about average for the industry. There are one or two competitors with considerably more time off.

    When you asked for time off the manager had to approve your time off an usually she did not approve it.

    Accrual rate is decent, and there is holiday pay. Not exposed to too much of the benefits as an intern.

    Employees earn paid time off at a calculable rate for time worked, excluding during the first 6 months of employment. At the end of the first 6 months they are given PTO and then continue to accrue time until they reach a certain amount, at which point accrual stops until they use it. The accrual rates may seem small at first, but once I did the math I found I would get about 2 weeks per year to start, which is more than I've seen at most other retailers.
