All this day dreaming about vacation resurfaced a question I have about how much vacation time most people get.
Does the private sector or public sector typically get more?
How many weeks do you get?
How soon can you use your vacation time?
Does your employer offer additional vacation days after years of employment?
I earn 80 hours of vacation time per year. New employees cannot use vacation time until after 1 year of employment. I do not accrue additional vacation hours after years of service, so an employee who has been here for 2 years and one that has been here for 20 years both get 2 weeks. This seems pretty standard, but I have noticed that several employers offer additional vacation time depending on years of service, normally something like 1 day per year.
