Many job seekers narrow their target employers by assessing the perks and benefits a company has to offer.
Unlimited paid time off may appeal to many workers, but reports show that a lot of employees don't actually take advantage of this benefit, as 206 million vacation days were forfeited by Americans in 2016.
Job resource site Remote.co has compiled a list of the top companies hiring now who not only offer remote work, but also a "mandatory minimum" on used vacation days.
