BB&T provides a competitive program of paid time away from the job to allow you the necessary time for mental, physical and emotional relaxation. The number of vacation days you may take is based on your years of service and increases with tenure and/or promotion entitlement.

Scheduling Your Vacation
You must submit vacation plans to your manager prior to April 1 or if a winter vacation is planned, as soon as possible after January 1. In the event of conflicting vacation plans within a department, the manager shall establish priority within each job classification, giving consideration to each associate's responsibilities and length of service.
You are generally encouraged to take your full vacation each year unless unusual circumstances prevent it. A perpetual carryover situation should be avoided, as this is not the intent of the policy. With prior approval of your manager, you may be able to carry over up to one week's vacation to the following year. A carryover decision should be based on the company's best interest, and would typically represent an event-based decision having to do with:
- Merger activity
- A major corporate project
- Other significant events (with manager's approval)
