Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
Well, I got a $50 debit from my company.


I am thankful for it for 2 reasons.


1. I am just a janitor.

2. It was nice of them.

After 4 months of unemployment I'm starting a new job in January. That company gives an 8% bonus at the end of each year.

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
We haven't had a Christmas Bonus in 10 years at my job. I work for Scrooge. Ten cent raises don't cut it every year. Cost of living keeps going up but pay stays about the same as 10 years ago. I'm seriously thinking of finding a new job after the holidays. Average pay here is $10/hour. Average cost of homes here are $200,000 on up. I don't get it.

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
I somehow knew there would be some sort of vicious, uncalled for response to my post. Yes, I work for JPMorgan Chase, but I am nowhere near the level of employment with then that merits a bonus of epic proportions. Quite frankly, I hope to be one of the fortunate ones to be rewarded for my nights and weekends of working for them. Hopefully my wife and children will benefit this one time of year for all of the other times I've worked extra hard to gwt where I an right now.

Sorry for the comment. It was more directed at the name. I know what you mean and my company is probably no better. Just pokin :)

All good. I hope you are recognized for your worth where you work. We all should be. I will give at least 100 bucks to charity this year, as I did last year, and the year before. I am one of the lucky ones. God bless!

My work colleague's husband gets $40k Christmas bonus every year
 Quoting: terrabe


I would puke, but that's giving too much attention to the subject.

I make ~15k a year, never have had a raise, never a bonus, money has been cut, commission rates cut, and the place isn't updated so customers hate it. My customer service is literally pristine so I've been pushing moving into a higher position but instead they hire a guy with a huge ego and he is taking that position.

Oh well. I'm done. Why move up in a company like this? We are literally dirt to the corporation. Why help them?

Sears, btw.

I just don't know what ill do next, but I've got to do something else.

Fuck, washing toilets would be better and probably better pay.

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
wow. just reading through this thread makes me think that doubling my 100 dollars donation would be a good idea this year. I have a son with autism, but damn - some people aren't even able to eat. I will be writing that check as soon as the money comes in. If it means a better world for my son in the long run, then I'm happy to contribute. God (or whatever you believe in) bless us all...

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
Are you kidding me? I'm just happy my leave got approved so I could at least see my family! I guess military USED to get bonuses, I've never seen one. Only when IPAC messes up and I owe the money back they overpaid!
I don't expect bonuses, so I guess I don't pout when they just never happen anyway...

We are a small family owned construction company (9 people total). The bonuses ranged from $500 to $300 for all our employees, plus a $100 gift certificate to our local butcher for meat packs. Felt good to be able to do it. The last few years have been a challenge.

I work for a regional hospital system in Texas, Catholic-based. We got a cheap chinese made ornament made of paper over styrofoam. Oh yeah I forgot the Christmas "dinner".
Honestly they could have forgotten the ornament and dinner and just have given me 10 dollars and I would have found that more useful.

All of your help changes the world.

Sounds cliche, but if sears was like you,they might still have me as an aassociate...

But probably not haha...

Idk if anyone here has worked at shc (Kmart, Sears) but they are ranked one of the worst companies to work for.

I am smart and talented. Not confident in looks, but I bust my fucking ass and am treated worse everyday.

But yes, def getting a different job.

I smoke cannabis because I feel it brings out spirituality, that's a part of my lifestyle.

If I have to move to not be judged for this, so be it.

But I just want to help people to the best of my ability and at least have a few meals a day.

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
First off i am sorry to hear about the lousy bonus' some of us get.

i though have been with the same company for eight years...started at entry level pay and worked hard. this year i received a cheque for over 6500 in profit share. We also have lunch and breakfast provided. Excellent coverage and family first attitude.

A change in life attitude allowed me to achieve this. Negative to Positive at all times at all cost.

From Prison to Now.

We did our employee bonuses in cash (and one gift certificate to the local butcher for meat)...seems to be for the best. Granted, we don't get a "write off" for payroll expense, but that is not what the bonus is about. It's about saying "I value what you do each day".
