    I’ve been with the company I work for 12 years now, and they pay 4 weeks vacation a year at that point


    Still hard to wrap my brain around the idea that I get a month off paid


    Lot of years before this job where I was lucky to get a week or two a year

    In Europe employees start off with 6 weeks of vacation. We have less holidays and companies can even ignore holidays. It’s nice to have a good work ethic, but it’s just as necessary to have a good play ethic too. Life needs balance.

    at my company, we can get up to 5 weeks a year.

    hard to really use them when they cut back on people and give me the work load of 3 people….

    really cant afford to take off from work. so I get paid out for them…..

    Oh, I got a letter just yesterday, promising me a vacation that’s paid for. Well, airline tickets and a resort stay, at least. All I have to do is call a 1-877 phone number in the next 6 days.
    I just know it’s for real and there couldn’t possibly be any ulterior motives on the part of the sender.

    at my old job, the only way to get a vacation was to ask to be laid off. Then hope you get hired back for the late Fall. (always got hired back in January).
    .
    Now with the new job, of 13 years – I get 4 weeks of paid vacation time. Don’t get more time until after 16 (or is it 18?) years.
