We understand that everyone needs time off occasionally, and with all the hard work that you guys do in the field you have earned it. However...
We often have many projects going at the same time, so if you are planning to take time off work, we need to know WELL in advance. Generally, our busy times are in the summer, and winter months are more likely to be slow. Please consider planning your trips then.
If you plan time off without an approved request ahead of time, there is no guarantee that it will be honored. In an effort to give everyone the time off that they need, requests will be considered on a "first come, first served" basis.
