Telling about planned vacations in the first week of joining
I will be joining a new company next week (Oct 22). I have two travel plans for the month of November which I had planned 3 months ago and had no idea I will join in Oct. Each of them requires a day off on Friday. I am worried about telling this to the new manager in the first week. Will it create a bad impression? What are my options?
Flight tickets are non-refundable and I will lose ~USD 1200.
Edit: company has unlimited leave policy and I am planing to offer to work extra in earlier and later weeks if needed.
