Anyone give or get Christmas bonuses this year?????
Mwuhahaha. The place I've been working for eight+ years just got bought out, and we'll all prolly lose our jobs. 12,000 people. For Christmas, Santa Larry is bringing yoyu ... a pink slip!

I have a christmas bonus of sorts. Because my tuition is completely covered by grants, the $700 scholarship check I get, I can simply cash.
but I still gripe
Been at this company 10 years I will be lucky if my I get a bonus over $150.
Nope lucky if we don't have to work on Christmas.
we missed out last year for the first time, but i just got this years today and were back on track. its 1800 bucks (2 weeks pay). but they tax it. lol
$600 Bonus for me. I work for a casino as a slot machine tech.
Christmas bonus = a turkey <sigh>
My first year I have ever gotten a Christmas bonus and only been at this place for 3 months.....got a check for $227. It will all get spent on the kids
I've been with this outfit now about 6 months, the christmas party was last friday night at the marriott, downtown.
kinda snooty for me but it was cool, I got to sit at the owners table, good prime rib, with all the fixin's, (including raspberry sorbet, too cleanse the palet)
and an open bar!
a white elephant gift thing ( I brought a bunch of old GM service manuals, all wrapped up)
then as we were getting ready to go home the owner walks up and says "Matt, you haven't been here long, but, your doing a fantastic job, keep it up!" then he handed me a check for $250.00 and shook my hand!
Not much, but better then a kick in the box!
I ain't complaining, I know lot's of people, who don't even have jobs, plus it's easy work!
Our company made too much money this year so we all got 1k each
I get like, $20, I think, and free beer at the party
Last year I was the only one who brought booze..... Jagermiester and a Jim Beam Punch........... thr youngest kid brings the best stuff
Most I ever get is a turkey oor $25 at all the jobs I have been at. We do noot even have a Christmas party where I woork now....
Do you get extra "o"'s ?
since im part owner in a small family business i dont get squat. im just thankful i get a few days off. we usually give our workers 50-100 dollars depending position.
to all you guys who get over $1K...."Lucky!" ~ Nap. Dynomite
i get a weeks pay, taxed.. pretty much the same the last 15 yrs... i think i prolly deserve 2 weeks, pretty much kill myself for the dude... but, hey, i guess its "found" money...
The boss always gives gift certificates so they don't get taxed, and I get to choose where it comes from, so this year I'm getting a gift certificate from H.A.D. Should come in handy this spring

I think ours comes out in January or Feburary... In fact I believe it was Feb last year...
Lat year I got it in April.
My boss called me this A.M., said he's trying to get them written out for us for this friday. Our company had a really good year, the best in the last 8 years.
$100 before taxes. I've only been there about 4 months (technically, I'm still in the 120-day "probation period"...) so I wasn't expecting anything.
