Using vacation hours

Oct 19, 2018
I am aware you can use them by requesting a day off and when it gets approved, you use them. But can they be used as a way to cover a day you call out for? Almost like sick time is used, or are they limited on how you can use them.

I check every other week and use vacation minutes any week at all that I work below my average hours. That's money I want immediately.
I have heard about way too many people who let it max out and then it stops accruing.
I save for things with my paycheck and budget. I want the vacation pay frequently in little pieces because it's better in my savings account at 2.1APY than it is with Spot.
