The employer decides how many people can be off on each day.

Annual vacation is granted by seniority during the published selction time ( has to be done by Dec 31 the previous year).

If you don’t use your seniority at that time, (many people like to save a few days for things that come up during the year e.g. weddings), then you take your chances  on vacation still being available.

Outside of the published selection time, vacation is first asked =first gets.

We are on teams of 4-8 people in my office (one intern, a few core employees, and one manager per team usually). When requesting off, they request that you don’t take off the same day as one of the other core employees, just in case our clients have a last-minute emergency or project that needs to be done. I can be off work the same day as my manager, but it’s not ideal for me to be off the same day as one of my co-workers at my level. Interns can take off any day since they are not client-facing.

I think my workplace fails to organize anything regarding leaves of the workers. Especially, there is this tradition in Croatia (where I live) that people are taking 3 to 4 weeks leaves around July and August for summer vacations. There are 4 depts at work, and there are 6 people in the dept where I work. Last week I was completely alone because the leaves of everyone were overlapping (2 of them had had left since July and last week was their last week off, the rest started theirs last week). I found this very, very frustating.
