You do it once you have the offer. I started a new job end of September last year vacation at my company is 17 days a year but based on my start date I’d only earn 6 days. I had 11 days of vacation planned and they gave me all those days off but that was all the vacation I got. I tried to negotiate so I wouldn’t burn the 6 days but they said no. I’m at a F10 was at a F500. In my experience they will let you take pre planned vacations but major corporations have vacation policies and they won’t give you extra days just enough to cover what you already have planned.

Definitely after the offer. I was in a similar position and to my surprise the response was something along the line of “no worries just do your job for the rest of the year and we will call it even.” Still was given time to take off for the holidays too.

Also, unlike other in-house roles I’ve interviewed for, compensation hasn’t come up yet. I’m in a major market, 7 YOE, I’m hoping for a base of 200 if I can get it plus 10% bonus as well as equity (much prefer RSUs - not huge on options), if that is what I’m targeting, what should I put out as my comp requirement if they ask to end up around there?
