Protip: Go ask the HR/recruiting staff at your firm.

Alternatively: Just wait and see. Either you'll get paid or you won't. Not much you can do about it.


Protip: yeah I don't want to be that SA asking about specific paydays already

Alternatively: yeah I have bills to pay and shit so the "wait and see" thing is cute but not helpful.

Probably yes - SA's aren't typically paid hourly, but instead bi-monthly, so each paycheck is the same amount regardless of firm-wide vacation days.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't paid for the 4th last year.

I am paid for the 4th, but not the 5th (which I am taking off).

We were paid the same during the Memorial Day pay period so I assume we will be for the 4th as well. It's not like it's a per-day salary.

This is a pretty obnoxious response to someone who is trying to help you. It also certainly makes it seem like you are "that SA" who would be asking about specific paydays already.

It's called a "paid holiday" and "paid vacation."
