16 days worth of time off, with the option to make up hours instead of taking leave (i.e., my time sheet needs to equal 80 hours every two weeks in any combination, even if it’s a bunch of 12-14 hour days in a row!).

I earn 8.31 hours of PTO per pay period.  In one year that amounts to 216.06 hours of PTO- which is used for sick time, vacation days, personal days, even holidays.

After the first 6 months I get 2 paid days, then at the year mark I get 5, and it keeps alternating like that.  It’s dumb

I’m spoiled. I get 20 days of vacation, 13 sick days, and 10 holidays per year. So thats a whopping total of 43 days per year.

For the first 5 years I was here, I got 13 days/year of blanket paid time off (minus paid holidays) that we can use for sick/vacation/personal time. We accrued it in 4 hours per paycheck.

Once I hit 5 years I got bumped up to accruing 5.5 hours per check, or about 18 days per year. Basically an extra week.

8 weeks paid vacation and unlimited sick time. We get 75% pay for all our sick days. If you are away sick for more than 4 months with one illness or injury, you go on Long Term Disability which is 2/3 of your pay.

12 stat holidays with pay.

I get 10 days of vacation, sick days aren’t defined but are at the boss’s discretion.  I got scolded for taking 4 sick days last year.

ETA: After 10 years you earn an extra 5 days of vacation and that’s the max.

I just started my job.  I get one paid “floating holiday” that I can take whenever.  I get 5 sick days, and once I am here for one year I get a weeks’ paid vacation.  Sitting here all summer is going to eat away at my soul.  I’m used to being in college/graduate school with summers off to research (=outside).  sigh.

I get 12 vacation days and 5 or 6 sick days.  My last job, I only got 10 vacation days and 5 sick days.

Darling Husband gets 22 days of PTO (includes both vacation and sick time) but he never has to use sick time even if he is sick.  He works from home on Fridays and travels during the week, but if he is sick, he can just work from the hotel instead of the office.  So it is essentially 22 vacation days.

22 days a year, with the ability to borrow up to 80 hours. I don’t exactly need to take sick days off but I do anyway because I feel bad lol.
