Usually 1 week paid vacation in the first year, which is separate from
the paid holidays of the store. Sometimes that week includes "personal
days," but they can be a separate benefit.
Another benefit would be whether or not unused vacation days "roll
over" to the next year, or vanish at the end of the year. If they do
roll over, for how long? Think about someone who works all the time,
and 10 years later, they have months worth of unused vacation days.
Yet another option would be that if the unused days don`t rollover, they can be "cashed in" for a day`s pay.
How long must someone work there before they get 2 weeks, and what`s the top limit per year, three weeks....four weeks?
Raises would be on an annual basis. Some places have a policy that you
MUST be given an employee review, handled by your direct supervisor,
within 30 days of your anniversary date (the day you got hired, after
the 90-day trial period).
Pay raises are set to percentages, usually between 3-10% or thereabouts
(I`m not an HR professional). But the salary itself is usually within a
range. So a floor sales person might have a range of between $8.60 -
When they`re hired, depending on past experience, they would come into
the salary at the low-to-middle of that range. That would leave them
"room" for raises, yet still keep them within the range. If they stay
in one job long enough to limit out the top of the range, then HR
should have a "career path" that provides a way for them to be promoted
to the next level.
