Yes, of course. And Labor Day Friday.

Lol if you’re in tax, it’s highly unlikely you’ll be getting Labor Day off.

EY got the week following the Fourth off, and we’ll be getting at least the Friday and Monday of Labor Day weekend off.

With unlimited vacation just take the month off.

Not this year since the fourth fell on a weekend, but we had a four day weekend, and other holidays added throughout the year including an extended Labor Day holiday. When the fourth is during the week, we tend to get the full week off (and Christmas week off as well).

like

Yes! Already blocked it off on my calendar

like

Bro chill, if you want to take it off, take it off. No one is forcing you to work on Labor Day. It’s a national holiday and therefore a firm holiday. I will be taking it off.

Yes to both

Hopefully yes to both. I had to work one day on July 4th shutdown due to an emergency with a 7/15 client. Fingers crossed that we can wrap up my 9/15 client before 8/31, and I can take off Labor Day weekend + some extra days off.

Need some advice regarding an offer I received. I’m approaching the one year mark in audit (October). I received a $65k accounting job offer in MCOL city with a tech company. The job will be a mix of accounting, budgeting/forecasting, and other ad hoc reporting. Does this sound like a good opportunity given my experience and background (Big 4, reputable university)?

But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
