    What is the formula they use to come up with it?

    It sure does accumulate fast!! Did they change it recently or was I jsut not paying attention all along?
    One week he has 50 hours and all of a sudden it seems as though he has another 9 hours..Not complaining though..it is just more than I thought he had:)

    Every week we get some time added (.62 ) It does build fast if you don't ever use it. I would sugest to use it personal / sick time will be lost if you get fired.

    Geez, that sucks...never heard that before...

    I always thought drivers should try to accumulate as much as allowed in case of emergencies like sickness and such..

    That is just the way I do things . I keep that low .
    But I have tons of vacation time , which they will have to pay me for if I get fired ,
    unlike sick time which the company can keep if it wants.

    We really don't have "sick" time. Even if you hve the time built up, if you call in sick more than twice in a 6 month period you will get a write up. You can use personal days if pre-approved. Go figure.

    Depending on what State you live in, In some States the Company is not required to pay vacation time built up if the employee is fired.

    They add vacation time once a month since they redid the system a little over a yr ago, if you are at 3 weeks a yr then you get 10 hrs added a month, 120 hrs \ 12 months = 10hr.

    Personal time is added to weekly. Same deal, works out to around .6 hrs a week for 32 hrs a yr or 4 days.

    I was told that personal days can stack up indefinatly but vacation you can only bank so many weeks ( 4, I think, correct me if I'm wrong )and they cut you a check for 1 week.
