PTO stands for Paid Time Off. Ascend team members working within Highland Rivers enjoy the same generous PTO accrual and use policy as do internal employees. PTO begins to accrue on your first day of work. However, you will not be able to view your balance or use PTO until you’ve been employed 90 days. After 90 days, your PTO balance will be viewable in your Paylocity portal and you can work with your supervisor to request and schedule paid time off.
