Need help with benefits at work - July 6, 2006, 09:20 AM

Could you please tell me what your holiday/vacation/sick leave is per year?

I get 10 days. Personal, vacation, sick, whatever. 10 days plus government holidays. I'd like to try to change this so I need a general consensus of what is normal in the workplace.

thanks!




Personal: part of 10
Vacation: part of 10
Sick: part of 10

In continuing with my "posting only relevant information" theme -

At Lockheed Martin, you accrue vacation monthly. You get 10 hours per month (when you start out), and at the first of the year, you get 48 to 56 hours of what they call "Holiday Float" time that can be used at any point during the year. At the end of the year, whatever you have left goes away. You also get the major government holidays off (Christmas, New Year's, Thanksgiving, July 4, etc).

*edit: 10 hours per month, not 6.7*

I get govt holidays which is 10 plus 15 days of PTO (Paid Time Off) which includes, sick days, vacation, personal, etc. We accumulate the 15 days throughout the year. We don't automatically get 15 days when we first start. Also we are allowed to carry up to 15 days of PTO each year. This goes up after 3 years along with the amount of PTO.

Approx 30 days total, possibly more now that I hit the 5 year mark here with Northrop. This includes Vacation leave which accrues, holiday leave, and this thing they call Alternative Time Off (sick, personal, I don't want to come to work, I haven't accrued enough vacation, etc days).
