  • You earn vacation time very slowly

  • Vacation time is acquired every week. Different amounts depending on how long you’ve been there.

  • You are given 20 hours of Unpaid Time Off (UPT) to start, and you start with 0 hours of Personal Time Off (PTO) or Vacation. PTO, UPT, and Vacation are accrued weekly, based on hours worked. PTO is accrued from January to June, UPT is accrued in 30-hour increments on the first day of each quarter, and Vacation time is accrued throughout the year. PTO and UPT can be used whenever and however you want, keeping in mind that, while PTO can be used in minute increments, UPT must be used in hour increments. UPT is used in place of a point system for full-time employees, and allowing UPT go negative is automatic termination. UPT is automatically used for any late or absence, unless you manually enter the time, and given that UPT is only usable in hour blocks, if you’re 5 minutes late, you just burned an hour of UPT, so it would be in your interest to make sure to use PTO to cover missed minutes for lates, and verify through the app that if you’re PTO your UPT wasn’t used as well (it happens frequently). PTO and UPT are automatically approved when requesting time off through the AtoZ app, but vacation time must be approved by management. There are blackout periods for vacation time use, which includes “Peak,” and this generally runs from the end of November to the end of December, so vacation time is no approved within the blackout period once it has been posted, though vacation is still approved for blackout periods of it was requested before the dates were posted. PTO and UPT can be used freely during blackout periods. Missing two or more days in a row without reporting them in the AtoZ app will burn UPT and cause HR to begin the job abandonment process, in which they will email you to ask for a status update, and you MUST respond to the email; not responding to the email and/or continued missed, unreported shifts will result in assumed job abandonment and you will be terminated from employment.

  • You accrual vacation every Saturday, but must submit it 24hrs in advance in order to use it

  • U build up 3 types of time off witch include pto,upt, and your vacation time

  • 1 hour accrued bi-weekly through your 1st year, about 3 hours accrued bi-weekly every year after. Up to 2 weeks can be accrued at any one time.

  • Depends upon length of service and hours worked.

  • Vacation time is accrued continuously, 2 hours per week. Depends on how long you have worked at the company and whether you are full time.

  • You get vacation time by the amount of time you work.
