*Be aware that as a Exempt/Salaried Employee the summer/peak season doesn’t really have a set schedule. While much effort will be given to ensure that you have sufficient breaks and time off during the peak season – generally this time of year has no “typical schedule” and will include long days and weekends. We try not to schedule time-off or vacation during this season except in extreme or special cases.
The non-peak or “off” season is generally much more flexible and allows for a regular, generally self regulated, schedule. Additionally we want you to use your full vacation every year during this time of year so that you have a positive work-life balance.
