In addition to vacation time, the Center for EcoTechnology offers 13 paid holidays throughout the year for full time employees. There is no waiting period for use of holiday time. Five of these holidays employees have the option to “float” if desired.

Vacation Time
Entry level full time employees earn 10 days of vacation time annually for the first two years of employment.  After two years, vacation time increases to 15 days. After five years, vacation time increases by one day each year for the next five years. Part time employees accrue vacation time based on the number of hours worked per week.
