I work full time and I get 20 personal days per year and can carry over 5.  When I started it was 12, then 15 after my first year, now up to 20.

I work full time as well, and get 15 vacation days, 6 sick/personal days (pretty much to be used only for illness/funerals/family emergencies, etc.).

When I started I had 10 vacation days.

10 vacation days that we accrue (0-2 years; 3 years+ is at least 15 days)
6 sick days
4 personal days…all are paid.

Four weeks of paid annual leave.  Three weeks of paid sick leave.  However, I get way more than the average worker because I work for the state.  It’s supposed to balance out the fact that my public salary is significantly less than what I would make in the private sector.

At my last job I had zero paid leave; if I didn’t work, I didn’t get paid (even holidays.)

At the job I had before that I earned 5 days over each year and had to use them by the end of the year; I didn’t qualify for additional leave until I worked with the company for 5 years, then I would accrue an additional week of vacation.

I don’t have set days. I work for a small company (just me and my boss) and he goes by the “be a professional” rule. Which to him means take a vacation, take a day here or there as needed for illness or other purpose, and be reasonable. It’s nice because I never have to worry about running out of days or anything. The down side is that I can’t bank days for the next year like my DH can and I don’t ever feel like I can just take a “mental health” day or take a few random days just to use my allotment. (My husband gets like 4+ weeks/year so he always rolls days over + takes a few extra days during not busy times just to use them up and I”m always jealous!).

I got 10 vacation days when I started. It goes upt to 15 days at the three year mark (I’ve been here four years), and years 6 and beyond are 22 days. Everyone gets 10 sick days and two personal days. We can carry over up to five vacation days; any unused sick time is put into a personal emergency bank, and once that is full (35 hours/one work week), then that is put into a disability bank (unlimited hours).

Even with teaching during the summer, I get 7 weeks off a year. Not that I get to chose when those 7 weeks are but it’s still nice. In the summer, I only have to go into work two days a week.

I accrue 14 vacation days, 12 sick days, and 10-11 holidays. I will accrue more vacation days the longer I work. I’ve been there six months. I work in state government so sick leave takes off of retirement. 

Where I used to work, we got five days after a year which nothing rolled over and ten days after three years. We accrue six days of sick leave a year that did not roll over. He also acted like he was giving us a present and we should be just so grateful when we took vacation days. I hated my old boss.
