I've been working with this shop for a little more than a year. One of the few benefits is two weeks vacation after one year, actually it's 2 weeks vacation after 20 years also. So today I went to the manager and asked for a week off in August and a week in November. I was told since I had started May 25th of last year, I would only be able to get one week vacation. So this is how they work it, because there is a half a calendar year left, I get half of the two weeks of the vacation time it says i get printed on the benefits page. No where is this explained on any printed material.

Am I off base here, or is this the norm? This is a family owned business which has been in business for 100 years and I have been told by everyone that works there that they just look out for themselves. They certainly do not show any appreciation for any of its employees (other than the Christmas pizza party we had in a garage of a paint store at lunch).
