Time off - May 25th 2015, 05:04 PM

How can I ask a new employer that I need 3 or 4 days off in July when I will be hired in June? It's sorta like a tradition in my house, either the first or second week in July(first week this year) we visit family outta state for a few days. This year, I believe we are planning to leave Thursday(July 2nd) and be back home Sunday late afternoon.

I thinking of working up till the 2nd and ask (somehow) to have the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th off and work aroud 5pm on the 5th.

I guess I could stay home, because It took me YEARS to get this job and I really don't want to loose it no matter how much I am looking forward to my mini vaction in July.

Is there a way to have both, a job and my mini vaction? I don't take vactions or ask for time off like ever besides those 3 to 4 days in July. I mean, I know my new employer wont know that.

When I first got hired at my most recent job, I told my supervisor that I needed a week off for a vacation that I planned over a year ago. I told her the day I got hired because I didn't want it to interfere with me working. I got approved for the vacation because I told her when I got hired, rather than a few weeks in.

Is your job part-time? Part-time employers are more likely to give you time off and have someone else fill in for you because they're usually more flexible about it.

There is no beauty without some strangeness.

Yeah, it's better to mention it as early as possible so they can make arrangements to plan around it if necessary.
