Pony Xpress Delivery offers PTO (paid time off) to every associate, and accrual of PTO starts day one. Associates are eligible to use the PTO they have in their accrual bank for vacation, sick time, or personal use. During holiday time late in the year, which is our busy season, we do have restrictions in place where associates may not take PTO during certain time frames. We communicate these time frames well in advance.
Pony Xpress Delivery operates 365 days a year. Each individual line of business follows their own holiday schedule (package delivery, middle mile and line haul). You may be scheduled to work a holiday.
