I started a W2 contracting job a few months ago. The agency is out of state, but the job is local. At that time, I was given a list of holidays, etc.

Now, I got a little surprise--I found out the company shuts down for 2 weeks during Christmas.I'm so frustrated since I only figured (financially) on 3 days.

I know there's not much I can do about it, but I am pretty upset with the agency for waiting so long to tell me and not revealing this upfront.

Has anyone else experienced this?
