What can I do if my manager keeps rejecting my pto? The excuse is that “we can’t have two people out at the same time” but the manager has broken this rule so many times.

I would suggest making a pot shared calendar so you can see what days are open in your department. #transparency

Yes, as a, planner you have less seniority. Just ask for your days in more advance

I asked a 2 months in advance 🙃🙃 lol

Create the shared calendar as suggested. Look for a new job. Honestly, it seems as if they have no respect you and don’t value you as a person.

How much sht do you wanna start and stir? I would gather all those examples of the rules being broken and point them out. If you're the only person who the rule is not broken for, and you're the only black person, smear it all over the walls. Bring out the receipts.

Plan to leave the firm within the next 6 months and use my PTO every other Friday because I can’t handle this work any longer—it has destroyed my mental health, along with the pandemic and all the shit going on in the world. I’m grateful to have a job but I can’t do this any more. I’m fully staffed on an engagement, but can I still request PTO every 2 weeks (just trying to use them up at this point)? Don’t care about promos, don’t care about this line of work and industry
