Yes.  I get 1 day a month at my current position.  That is what I got at the place before this too.

 I get one day a month paid leave for whatever reason is needed.

 I think I get two weeks of PTO a year. It accrues like four hours every pay check or something.

i have 4 weeks vacation plus 4 floating holidays each year...at my company salaried employees don't have technical sick time. but if i'm sick i can just tell my manager i'm not working today and it's built in to my time (as long as i don't do it too often)

Nope. We don't get paid if we're not at work. We technically get 2 weeks vacation a year at my job but they just cut us a check around our anniversary so they don't have to keep track of it. I usually try to take my vacation right around my anniversary so that way we don't actually lose any money.

No, I get one personal day every quarter, if I dont use it then I lose it :/  I get paid whatever I would have gotten paid if I had worked.

Yes.  We get 7 sick days a year I believe.

I have 192 hours built up, about 6 weeks. I can't take it the first day, but personal time can be.

I get unlimited sick time and it's all paid.  If I'm sick or my kids are sick or I have an appointment, I just tell them and don't work.  No harm, no foul.

I also have 5 weeks vacation plus paid holidays - but sick time doesn't come out of that.
