As time goes by and you can slowly earn 3 weeks (or more) off per year, etc. 4 weeks standard would be awesome though (I thought only managers and higher ups would get that much)
A year has 365 days so having 30 free days doesn't seems so much. I really feel sorry for those you only have 2 weeks of vacation.
4 years ago I worked as a zoo keeper at the local zoo. It was a dream come true, this was the one and only thing I ever wanted to do in my life, and when I found out there is an opening I knew this is the job I am going to keep till I am 65.
But a year later they changed the management and it became the horrible job I ever had. We never took a day of. Out of 30 days in a month I worked 28 or 29 days, without vacations, working over time without getting paid. I tried to convince myself I am doing it for the animals.
When I noticed i cannot help the animals anymore, I quit my job and swore I will never work on weekends and holidays anymore!!!
