How Much Paid Time Off Do You Get Per Year?

I'm Asking: How Much Paid Time Off Do You Get Per Year?

It's always interesting to look at how many paid days off employees receive at various companies, because the numbers are all over the place. Vacation days are often skewed according to the time an employee has been with the company, but it can take a while to acquire additional days. How much paid time off do you get every year?

I believe we have 9 Holidays, plus one floating holiday, 3 sick days, and 10 vacation days. After 5 years you get 15 vacay days though. Though I don't get all that many days off (and it's especially hard after being in school for so many years getting used to super long vacations), but they do allow working from home if necessary :)

i think that we get a decent amount. we get 3 weeks vacation, a few summer flex days, a handful of sick days and then a few 'optional' days

11 days after the 2 year mark, I originally got 10. We also get 3 floating holidays. I work for a gov't contract company, so we also get gov't holidays off.

I work for a University and and after 5 years I get a day and half of vacation each month and a sick day each month. We also get the week between Christmas and New years as it is the only time the University actually shuts down.

17 PTO days, 2 floating holidays, and unlimited (within reason) sick days.

3 weeks vacation, 5 sick days off, paid normal holidays. I love that in my company, this all starts from day 1 (no having to wait several years). I love where I work though, so this is just frosting on the cake.

11 days! not much... at all. sometimes having a salaried position can work against you when you're working 'overtime' and don't get comped!

Right now I get three weeks paid vacation in the summer. Since my business is school generated, I also bonus out with PD Days, March Break, Christmas holidays, etc. :)

Right now I'm at 3 personal days a year. But - I have approx 300 hours of sick leave accumulated over 5 years.

I get 5 vacation days a year and 2 sick days. After three years I get 10 vacation days, I think. We used to get 5 sick days a year but our owner cut our sick days and then took 3 weeks off to go to Rio. This was after he took multiple two week long international vacations. Great for company morale. : (

My PTO (vacation and sick) is about 25 days/year after 3 1/2 years, based on hours worked and I work a lot of OT. I think it started at 15 days/year

I own my own business, therefore I get ZERO paid days off.

5 vacation days, 4 sick days and 3 personal days per year. but leaving an hour early to go to a doctor's appointment equals half of a personal day. this job blows.

First year at my company: I get 24 hours of Paid Time Off, which can be used same day if I get early dismissal. I have 11 sick "days" and 10 days of vacation time. Each day = 8 hours though, and I work 10 hour days, so it works out to be less. Everything except PTO rolls over per year, and increases every year up to a cap that I am not aware of.

Ours accrues based on how many hours we work. I think we earn 6 hours of PTO for every 40 hours we work. PTO is separate from sick time, which also starts accruing when you start your employment. I work part-time, so my PTO just accrues more slowly than if I were full-time. I don't really have to use it much, but sometimes I'll take a PTO day just so I get paid to not be there, lol.
