    Hello! I'm sorry if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find it. I would really like to apply to my local hub in a month or so. There is usually job listings open at this hub, but up until a few weeks ago, there was no listings up, so I'd like to jump on the opportunity. However, my family has a vacation planned for 2 weeks at the beginning of July. Would this be something that they would be understanding of if I told them at the interview, or would they view this as a red flag? Thanks.

    Hmmm thought call. Not go on a vacation and have a full time career with good pay, security, health benefits and retirement or go hang out at the beach. Damn, I really don't know.

    Part tine or full time? Answer is no chance for both. Best case scenario is you aren't working yet, but that presents its own problems.

    I would have to say NO. July is a pretty sought after month and time off goes by seniority. Even if they tell you yes I wouldn't believe HR because they don't get to make that decision.

    HR will say there is no problem. The week before your vacation, you will double-check with your supe and the supe will say, "If you go, you are fired."

    That is how it played out at my center a couple of years ago.
