Hey all, I am on a gap year right now with a very irregular work schedule. We don't find out our scheduled shifts for the week until the previous weekend and the company operates 7 days a week, so I could be scheduled for literally any day of the week. I am planning on using my PTO days for interviews, but my main problem is that I am not eligible to use my PTO until September because of company policies. I submitted my AMCAS primary early and I already got some secondary invitations. I'm praying that my interviews don't start until September 1st, but if I end up having August interviews, does anyone have advice on how to go about taking time off from work without getting fired? Do I just wait until the morning of and call in sick? Should I just suck it up and tell my boss that I'm applying for med school and hope that he won't schedule me for my interview day?
