  • i prefer to know an employees plans prior to hiring so I can plan the schedule...nothing worse then a brand new employee wanting time off right off the bat w/o notice prior to hiring

  • The correct time to do this is at the time you accept an offer. Usually hiring managers ask if you have any vacations planned.

  • The last time I got a job I told them when I accepted the job - "yes I would love to work for you but I have a vacation planned for X dates"
