They give the minimum of vacation by law (2 weeks- year for the first 5 years; then 3 weeks for the next 5 years.....they could be flexible it depends of the owner pharmacist. mine they did not authorise ANY any days off without salary. People who needed 4 weeks on the firts 5 years they had to resign an come back (they agree with that)

Vacation time needs to be booked many months in advance or you won't be approved. We have a lot of people who get several weeks of vacation per year, and you have to book around them. I have never been able to use up my allotted vacation time.

They are extremely understanding for taking vacation days as long as you book these days a month prior before scheduling has been set up!
