It depends on your years of service, position, and number of hours you work. If you are not union, the vacation is very generous, especially if you work there for a long time. The disadvantage is that you will never get any time off during holidays...ever. You are compensated for this with lots of time off in other parts of the year.

Vacation in progressive. (Example: First year = 2 weeks. 15 years = 5 weeks.) If you are in a position that does not get holiday time during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, you get 4 personal days on top of that throughout the year. (These numbers are for non-union. Union positions vary.

You could work anywhere between 4 hours to 8 hours. Sometimes they will ask you to stay later, but it’s never assumed.

Fluctuated and never enough to do more than pay rent and maybe eat something. No room for savings.

My personal experience was a nightmare. It took over a MONTH to actually start any sort of work. It takes two days to get the phone interview and then the live interview, and then comes the background check. The check is supposed to take a week, tops, but mine took a month. Once I was actually screened, I didn't have any of my information (my cashier login, or my punch in/punch out number, or any access to web tools) until my first actual day of work that wasn't training. For training I had to go all the way to Ballard (I work in Bellevue) to get it done, and the training lasted three days. Orientation lasts one day, and the WBLMs take about a full day to complete. In a perfect, streamlined world, it would take probably two weeks maximum to actually get started.
