Re: How often do you use your sick days?
The last place I worked at, I believe I used 1.5 days in the 4 years I was there. We got 5 days a year and were paid out for any unused days at the end of the year. We've never had many appointments, but when I did have appointments I usually just went on my lunch, or tried to keep them as early or late as possible and made up my time. Luckily my boss was very flexible as long as we didn't have a meeting with a client or something like that.
Where I work now, we accrue our sick time and it all depends on hours, but works out to about 1-2 days/month if you are working full time.
