I’ve got 12 days to use. Ididn’t use much leave this year. I think Dec 6 is my last day for the year.
Major shop cleaning, intake gasket set on the 90rado and more work on the 53. Is my plan. Also need to make a salvage yard search.

My work has it, max of 240 hours carry over, but can go over that during the year.
Our fiscal year is July 1 to June 30, so I am only half way through my year, I think I have 250 hours right now, and get ~7 more every 2 weeks.

I rarely take off, and like to keep as much time as possible "just in case" since our time is both vacation and sick time.

I have 6 weeks and use it all. Rarely do I carry over any days.

Vacation and sick days are 2 separate buckets.

We roll time to a point but encourage our people to take vacation. We switched to a PTO style this year. No sick/vacation days, just a set amount of days off.

We have a max amount in PTO then you lose the accrual. At that point you take it as pay.

Company policy is 120 hrs max. I started this year with 120 and have used 64 so I will start next year again with 120.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

They used to allow us to roll them to the next year, then tightened it up to those with 20yrs or more of service, then did away with rolling hours over at all. I get ~280hrs/year. One day is 12hrs though. I tend to take a bunch in Nov and Dec.

My last long term employer had a use it or lose it policy for salaried employees. At the 15 yr point with them I had "lost" about 6 months of vacation time. Most of that was due to company "needs" when other more senior people altered schedules and events to encroach on my 2-4 weeks of annual vacation time. While they always preached take your time to refresh yourself.....they were not very understanding if you were not present at key events, scheduled or not. There was one year there at my busiest (doing 90 hour work weeks for 6 months and 60-70 hrs the rest of that year) when I took zero vacation time.

We can only accrue 720 hours and then it starts rolling off and counting towards our retirement date.

I’m off everyday .

My wife’s company gives her unlimited vacation time. Take as much time off per year as you want, as long as you get your job done. She could literally take 20 weeks off per year and no one would bat an eye. I think she takes 8 or 9 weeks off which is inline with everyone else.

fortunately the PTO that I accumulate I don't lose and nor do I have a limit.


I take some days off here and there, I will be taking off some time around christmas/new years


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

use it or lose it, by your anniv. date with the company. I've been around long enough they are contractually obligated to give me 25 PDO days a year.
I still have 15 to use by the end of May.
the "fun" part is management has a long standing policy of "blackout Dates" around Holidays(starting in early Nov through the end of the year for THE Holidays), The Union says there is NOTHING in the contract that allows blackout dates...

it was hard enough to get 20 days in...(can only use 5 in a pay week, can't take multi week blocks without management approval, etc) then the next contract upped it to 23...next one 25...

My Brother started his Job with another company on Jan 6. never took any time off, headed into Nov with 10 days to use..now he's scrambling...

I think we can carry just under 300 hours. I earn 144 / year and usually use most of them. We have mandatory vacation between Christmas and New Years unless you are the standby engineer.

They added 40 hours of sick leave due to the mandatory vacation, which does roll over.
