I get a $25 gift card from them, it's one that's more of a pain in the butt than a gift.... you can't use it online or they charge you $13, you can't use it at a food place, you can't use it at a gas station.....well where the heck can you use it?!
post #11 of 28
Yes, but it's not a holiday bonus really it depends on how well the company does.

We usually get an extra $100 in our paycheck, but the way this company is so shaky, I'm just glad to get the paycheck!!

We don't get holiday bonuses, but we do get bonuses. Our bonus is based on how well we meet certain goals, and they usually come in late February or early March.

For thanksgiving they give us a $25 gift card to one of the local supermarkets.. it's sort of a "we'll buy the turkey, the rest is up to you" But still more of a pain in the butt than it's worth since I'm in a BFE area and it's a hike to this specific supermarket.

But I won't look a gift turkey in the mouth

Nothing for the december holidays. But with the industry I'm in taking a bit of a hit lately, I don't think my company had the money to do it this year.

Yes, I do get a very nice bonus from my boss. Great guy he is! He also takes us out for a very nice dinner the week before Christmas. I always look forward to this.

DH and I both work for the state (University researchers) so no bonuses for us We both love our jobs though, FWIW.

We get a small bonus from the administrative offices of the archdiocese. It helps buy Xmas presents for my nieces and nephews.

I just found out from our company president that there's the possibility of $2000 bonuses this year...

I'm not counting my chickens before they hatch though. We usually get closer to $500.

Not a bonus, but last year we got nice gifts. Out of her own pocket of course! Work pays for a nice dinner though. We are actually exchanging gifts tomorrow and the dinner is Saturday! At the casino too!

I got a small one..couple hundred$$ Its gone already for Christmas pressies
post #23 of 28
We used to get a small cash bonus, but belts have been considerably tightened in the last year, and those of us who have not been personally affected by the cuts are grateful for that and not quibbling about bonuses. We're pretty well treated on the whole, even when times are tight.
post #24 of 28
We usually do but so far this year he hasn't asked me to write cheques
post #25 of 28
My boss is a scrouge!!! (LOL, it's my hubby as I am a stay at home Mom)

Last year when I was a private nanny, the lady I worked for gave me an awesome spa package to our local day spa. She also gave my mom the same thing so that we could go together (my mom cleans her house). We still haven't gone yet because we want to go together but haven't had a chance yet lol / This year i have a new job and i'm thinking i will get a big fat: Nothing!
