    I was hired off the street and made seniority as a FT package car driver. My hire date is in July. Do I get any option days or vacation time at my 1 year anniversary?

    I got 1 option day and 2.5 vacation days on January 1. Do I get anymore paid time off before next January 1?

    I'm located in Dallas, TX, if the contract language is different in different places.

    Here if your seniority date is prior to May 1st you are entitled to two the following May 1st. If it's after May 1st you have to wait two years

    In the Central, you get 2 option days on your second anniversary date.

    PNW here you get 5 option days after a year, along with 5 paid sick, 10 vacation and the typical 7 (oh I mean 6) paid holidays off.
