Not sure it was hard to take time off. You had to be on your death bed to take time off.

Report answer

The vacation policy is a bit complicated because you need to submit the appropriate paperwork well in advance of the time you want vacation. Starting out you get two weeks of vacation and several personal days and it increases over time.
