10 days + personal and sick days AT LEAST. Totaling 15 days for the first 3-5 years and then add another 3-5 days to it. Otherwise you’re just being a sweatshop. OR you better be paying above market…

You can’t be serious.

We give ours 15 days to use however she would like whether it’s sick or vacation. 1 week seems very low.

You won’t hire under those terms. Gotta start with 2 weeks PTO and standard holidays. You could increase from 2 weeks to 3 after 3 years

What’s wrong with you people? When you’ll get that people don’t work for crumbs anymore. The slave-based economy is dead! I remember when Ameriprise started me over 20 years ago with $250 a week just so I can starve to death and no paid time off in the first year. I had to run up credit card debt just so I can get back and forth to work. I had $68,000 (mind you that was 20 years ago and 2 side jobs) in student loans at 7% variable APR and $90 bucks in my checking account. I was out the door the day my training program ended! Pay people well! Take care of them. It’s respect! It goes a long way. Then, they will work hard and want to stay and help you build your business!

We just added three non registered sales assistants…. 4 weeks vacation, 40 sick time, simple IRA. Training is a year at least I don’t need them jumping for an extra week vacation

Your vacation isn’t “well-deserved”. It’s in your offer letter and it’s contractual. So take those goddamn days.

Self-directed IRAs. So many questions! Have any of you ever tried a self directed IRA?

Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?
