Perfectly legal, perfectly acceptable to the idiots that comprise the US work force.
To echo what others have said, when I started at the bank that I work for (5th largest in the country) I had 4 weeks vacation on day 1 with the option to buy an additional week on a pre-tax basis. Also, we get 6 sick days and 12 bank holidays (today being one of them). Sound like you worked at the wrong place.
