Christmas Bonus 2012 edition

Getting my bonus tomorrow. It's usually $80 or so. This year prices increased and we lost some clients so i expect it to be less this year.

We don't get a bonus but if you haven't used any sick time you are allowed to sell some back and get it on the check before Christmas. I sold back the max: 35 hours (I have close to 600).

Re: Christmas Bonus 2012 edition

I'll give the same answer I gave last year... nothing.
And like last year, I can't complain because I have a job which pays decently.

As usual, I get 10% of my salary. We also get a unique Christmas present, sometimes it will be a winter jacket or something with the company logo, but the last few years they've been fancy custom statues from companies like Sideshow Collectibles, which is way cool.

I gave them out again this year. All things considered, that's a nice feeling.

$500. Same as last year. However, since our business was down, it was unexpected to get one at all.

Re: Christmas Bonus 2012 edition

We got ~$200. First time for a Christmas bonus, so I hope we aren't losing our usual bonus we get in April. Especially since that one has always been quite a bit more.

$500. In yrs past it's been a gift, which were 50/50 hit and miss. We didn't rent out a place for the party like we usually do...though the office wasn't as exciting, everyone went home happy.

Ditto, but I guess being employed could be considered a bonus these days.

Re: Christmas Bonus 2012 edition

Oddly, I got what I would consider a "Christmas" bonus, which is rare since I work for the gov't. Apparently they had some left over money based on budget surplus, so they did a merit bonus, which we got a few weeks ago. It was 2.8% one time bonus, which was $1400 pre-tax, so I ended up with about $950. Was a nice surprise, and something I hope they continue to do. I'd almost rather have that once a year near Christmas time than say the 2.8% as a raise, spread throughout the year.

Nothing from my full-time job (gov't.), but I got $50 from the boss at my weekend part-time job (non-profit art gallery). She even gives me a few paid sick/personal days per year, as well as holiday pay if they're closed on Saturday or Sunday.

Re: Christmas Bonus 2012 edition

Got $1500, taxed at 36%. Better than last year, and I never expect to get anything, so I am very, very pleased. Especially since I get paid so poorly and struggle to pay bills and buy food, never mind ever go out or buy fun things. Very appreciative of it and happy to have gotten anything, particularly something that good.

No bonus. Just a company pen and a cheap wallet.
