Our commitment doesn’t end when your workday does. We offer a range of benefits to help you balance work and other aspects of your life.

Time Off

E*TRADE’s time off benefits include vacation, sick days, and holidays:

  • Vacation accrues based on the number of years of employment you have completed on your service anniversary date each year, based on your regularly scheduled hours. Part-time employees accrue on a prorated basis, measured against a standard-hour work week.
  • Sick time accrues as you work, but does not exceed nine business days or 72 hours per year. Part-time employees accrue prorated sick hours based on the number of scheduled work hours per week.
    Note: Hourly employees who work less than their regularly scheduled work hours during any pay period will accrue less than the applicable maximum accrual rate.
  • Holidays observed by E*TRADE generally follow the practice of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ (NASD).
