Just wondering whatís everyoneís paid vacation is like

I was meeting with my boss regarding this matter

We have
15 vacation days after 5 years of employment
2 personal days
6 sick days thatís only used for medical issue
Itís currently not rollover, which I am suggesting rollover with a limit
Also having same amount of vacation days wether you work for 5 years or 10 years seems discouraging

I am self employed, i may get a few sundays off. It actually sounds like a decent package but i dont see you get before 5 years

I think personal day and sick day stays the same year 1, but start with 5 vacation day after first year and grow into 15 after employed for 5 years

I was thinking it sounds too low, wonít year 10 should give like 20 pto?

My company is slowly but surely becoming work from
home. I got a sweet deal 4 years ago to go there. Then I left Allegheny county for Weirton.

My vacation package is 4 weeks.
I get 3 paid floating holidays.
I get a half a sick day a month for a maximum accumulation of one month sick time.

Vacation and floating holidays do not carry over. Use them or lose them.

Correct. Floating holidays are just holidays of your choice. Basically itís like 3 additional days of vacation. Most people use it for Xmas eve. Years eve and the day after 4th of july. You can use them whenever.

Floating holidays are intended to cover holidays that employees might not already get off, without having to use a vacation or sick day for a religious observance. So if everyone is off Christmas and New Years and July 4th, but you need to be off Yom Kippur, Diwali, or Eid, that's what they're for.

At my work, people start out with 12 PTO days (the amount increases after every 5 years of employment,) 12 paid holidays, and 3 floaters. You can carry over PTO up to the amount that you earn in a year.

My companyís ďfloatersĒ are a day that you can schedule for whenever if an already acknowledged holiday falls on a weekend. The policy is changing though to if the holiday is Saturday we have Friday off and if it is Sunday we have Monday off.

4 weeks vacation over some sort of staggered schedule but I think everyone starts with three weeks thesedays but Iíve had my four for a while now (the 5th week is after 25 years of service....woof)
6 absence days to use for whatever (everyone just uses them by the EOY though)
1 personal day
No carry over unless with some manager discretion due to a strange circumstance

The maternity/paternity leave is also pretty generous

Correct. And OP my company has a very small presence here. They are HQ in NewJersey. It will probably be harder to get more vacation out of a legacy Pittsburgh company. Local companies are unforgiving with pto and pay Pittsburgh cheap. We were close to leaving the region all together till this job let me
Stay. This job gave me a 58 percent pay increase over my Pittsburgh salary and two extra weeks of vacation. So I left my Pittsburgh based company for this job. Iím not a computer or tech guy either.

I think if you can find jobs in Pittsburgh that work remote or the company is HQ in an expensive area elsewhere you get the higher salary and better time off package. This job will take me home.... to retirement if it can last me another 20 years .

So
My vacation was doubled taking this gig.
