X-Mas Bonus 2014

$100 again this year. Always surprised since we're a small business and it seemed this year was a slow year.

Nothing, but to be honest, having a job is good enough.

Re: X-Mas Bonus 2014

Small one, but also a small company and only been open for 18 months, so anything is gravy. Also was unemployed last year, so it was already a step up. Employees at the place I used to work at got the shaft last year, so I guess I didn't miss anything.

Re: X-Mas Bonus 2014

Nothing, like every other year of my professional life. My company did give everyone the day after Christmas off as well, so that's like a bonus vacation day.

Re: X-Mas Bonus 2014

We get our annual bonus in July for some reason. $50 per year of service. Sucks for newer guys, but I got almost $1,000 last year.

My Christmas bonus is a 13 day break. Only had to burn 4our vacation days to fill it out too.

We get a package of meats and cheeses like Hickory Farms. I don't think anyone gets a cash bonus. Salespeople get bonuses based on their production but we get it at the spring meeting.

Re: X-Mas Bonus 2014

This year it was about 13% of salary, which was insanely awesome. I work for a tribe that owns a huge gaming brand, and we had a fantastic year. Almost all of it went to savings, but the wife and I splurged a wee bit (a weeklong Alaska cruise in 2015 and some travel throughout the northwest).

Pfft. No bonus. The three guys in my department were informed on Friday that we (and only we) will be expected to work on Christmas.

I've worked in nonprofits all my life and have never gotten a Xmas bonus and you just reminded me I haven't yet tipped the super and porter here.

My thoughts exactly.

I don't think I've ever gotten a Christmas bonus.

Get a yearly bonus, never a Christmas bonus though.

Nothing... but we do get the week between Christmas and New Year's off, including surrounding days. Works out to be a week and half this year.

Last year was a very good year for the company. Got a $400 bonus. This year we were busy but took some financial hits. Bonus was $100.
