    A benefit of seniority: There are two types of seniority- hospital and department. Seniority is defined as the length of time an employee has been continuously employed. Do you know, the longer you are employed by the hospital determines how much vacation time you earn? The longer you are there, the more you earn. For your first year you earn 10 days of annual leave, prorated by your FTE.
