All full time staff (who have completed their 90 day probationary period), regardless of department within the agency have the same Personal Time Policy, 64 hours the first day of the fiscal year. Part Time staff follow the Massachusetts PTO law, every 30 hours worked, equals one hour of PTO. I hope this clarifies your concern.

I recently had tried to get a personal day approved but was rejected because they said it could only be used for surgery or if there was a death in my family. I really feel that was insensative. I work really hard for my house and pick up shifts when the on call asks me.
I recently tried to take advantage of the tuition reimbursment benefit guild offers but the HR misplaced my papers and I missed out. Total bummer for me.
I had to fight tooth and nail for a personal day. I would submit the request only to have it rejected by my supervisor. It was frustrating because I attempted to contact HR and it felt that I was being sandbagged and nobody ever addressed my concerns.
Many of the great benefits have been slashed by new policies that have been rolled out in recent years. Some of the benefits posted on job postings are not available to all employees. For example, personal days are granted for staff who work within the day school but residential staff are not given access to personal days.
Health insurance, vacation, holiday for day staff.
