Schwab does not accrue PTO or Paid Time Off bucket. We accrue time off in two separate buckets - vacation time and sick time.

You begin accruing vacation time the first of the month following your start date. The accrual amount can vary depending on job grade; the minimum is 8 hours per month. One's job grade and tenure impacts the increase in vacation accruals. Sick time accrues separately and is based on hours worked.
