    idrivethetruck Slow & steady wins the race.

    Bidding for vacations has always started at the first of November. If you're asked to bid earlier each year it's probably because you are gaining more seniority. I bid mine on Nov 3 this year.

    Here as well.
  14. Last year it was open. Maybe they only let 1 or 2 off that week. I'll have to check and see if one of the top guys picked it. Or did they just eliminate that week.

    What's funny is that when I started, getting a vacation in the summer was tough. With no senority, you were lucky to even get one. Now I can grab 6 there and no one bats an eye.
    With all the crazy winter weather we've had in the Northeast, January and February are almost untouchable unless you're in the top 10% on the senority list.
    I remember always taking Super Bowl week off, now that's a pipe dream for another 10 years. LOL
