Time-Off Programs

We offer two types of time-off programs:

  • Non-exempt associates: Paid Time-Off (PTO)
  • Exempt associates: Vacation

Additionally, all full-time and part-time associates receive 10 paid holidays a year.

Non-Exempt Associates

PTO provides a "bank" of time for associates to use at their discretion, such as for a vacation, illness or other time-off needs.

Full-time associates working 40 standard hours a week are granted PTO based on calendar years of service.

  • In your first calendar year of service (year 0), your PTO is based on a prorated portion of a 15 day PTO allotment using date of hire.
  • After the year in which you were hired, you receive 20 PTO days annually (calendar years 1-4)
  • Upon completing four full-calendar years, you receive 25 PTO days annually (calendar years 5-9)
  • Upon completing nine full-calendar years, you receive 30 PTO days annually (calendar years 10+)

Exempt Associates

Full-time associates working 40 standard hours a week are granted vacation based on calendar years of service.

  • In your first calendar year of service (year 0), your vacation is based on a prorated portion of a 10 day vacation allotment using date of hire.
  • After the year in which you were hired, you receive 15 vacation days annually (calendar years 1-4)
  • Upon completing four full-calendar years, you receive 20 vacation days annually (calendar years 5+)

Exempt associates are granted paid sick time on an as needed basis.

All Associates

  • If you work less than 40 standard hours, the PTO/vacation allotments shown above are prorated based on your standard hours as maintained in Workday.
  • You may use PTO/vacation time after satisfying a 90-day probationary period.

It's important to note that unused purchased PTO/vacation may not be carried over into another calendar year—and you must use earned PTO/vacation before purchased time.
