None, I'm self employed. I can take off as much as I want if I don't mind not having enough money at the end of the month to pay my bills. No paid days off, no holidays, oh and not had a raise in 34 years. Yep, working for yourself is great!

I currently have 300hrs of vacation, 16hrs of holiday time (which is like vacation) and 900+ hours of sick leave. I accrue 6.7 hrs of vacation and 4hrs of sick every 2 weeks. We get our 88hrs of holiday time every Jan. 1 and it has to be burned by Dec. 31.

We don't lose vacation until we get above 320, that's our max.

I can't figure out why I'm constantly at work, feels like all I do is work.

I can get up to 305 hrs PTO every year. No holiday pay anymore since Walmart went to PTO time. Right now I am at 198 hrs PTO and any hours over 80 as of Feb 1st will be cashed out and paid out to me on the next pay check. I will only use 1 week of vacation time in mid January for my Wichita Mtns WMA elk hunt. So I should have approximately 140 hrs PTO cashed out to me on February 1st. I will have my car paid off and knock some of my other debt off early next year and I will start using more vacation time than I am right now.

I only get paid when I'm at work, or training. And that's on a rotating schedule, about 60 days on and 50ish off.

So, almost 150 days of "vacation" a year.

120 hours (3 weeks for normal schedules but I work 14/14 12s) plus holiday pay. Oilfield doesn't care if it's Christmas haha. If you're on shift then you're working. Double time and a half though
I can carry 40 hours over. They buy the rest back

I get 160 hours per year. Then my sick time builds monthly, but it's maxed at 384 hours I think. I can only use it for actually sick days though, can't just burn them to take a day off. Then we don't get paid overtime and get comp time instead, and I think I have around 130 hours of comp time now. And then holidays too. So I end up with a lot of time I could take off, but we're short handed a lot so it's not always easy to get it scheduled unless I put in at least a month ahead.

10 hours every 30 days so adds up to about 3 weeks for the year. I also get to work a 9/80 schedule so I get every other Friday off. Also the company shuts down for the week of Christmas. Also have personal business time that is basically comp time, but it is going away next year...

So in total I have:
3 weeks vacation
26 Fridays off
12 Holiday days
