Did you get one this year? does your company usually give you one? If they dicked you, did you get an explanation? How long before the bonus day did they notify you?

I'm hoping to get a poll to work here.


* edit, looks like the site doesn't like polls right now.

See, I'm in construction too, and we got stiffed this year. We got a memo the day before the xmas party telling us not to expect shit (raises either). Supposedly the second quarter. My company has always been one of the stingiest construction companies I've ever heard of.

I'm getting approximately 6.5% of my salary. It's a nice chunk of change. Unfortunately, I'm getting it in MARCH! [pissed]

... Just successfully accomplished a huge two-year project and received a nice cash recognition award that funded a good part of my recreation room, home improvement project. ... Took one month off from work similarly related to the completion, but no Christmas bonus other than five days Holiday with pay. ... Life is good.

I'm in construction also but I don't get them, I give them, and today I gave out over 35K to staff. They're good people and it's been a very good year.

Also in construction here (subcontractor actually). We always get an extra 40 hour week pay check, plus a slight raise.

Usually get one. Not this year. I wasn't counting on it so it's not money I "needed". This is the only company I've worked for that gave bonuses. Unless ya count the 10 lb. turkey the last place would give us. I just love the construction biz[rolleyes]

No Xmas bonus, quarterly production bonuses only.

Didn't get one last year but did this year. I bought a Beretta storm carbine with it.

Yeah, we have a shitty little party in the parking lot at the main office. This year the subs weren't even invited. I'd rather have the $50/head it probably cost them.

3.5% COL raise and a $50 gift certificate for use at the local mall. No complaints, better'n a poke in the eye I guess!

$500.............ill use it to pay off my lawyer for that road hunting bullshit ticket..................

[nono]Don't forget now, half of that is from Randolf.

Pretty good here. Become a stock holder this year (40 people private company) so they have to disperse with some of the profit. Cash bonus is ~ 20% of my yearly salary. Also got 1 share of the company that they paid for so my W2 will look crazy this year.
Link Posted: 12/19/2003 4:32:50 PM EDT
The boss gave me an AR-10 and some BH ammo. Kind of cheap when I think about it, I'm worth a lot more than that.
Link Posted: 12/19/2003 4:42:14 PM EDT
Bonus? [img]http://mindscraps.com/s/contrib/Bizkit/sweat.gif[/img] Last week the company announced that or contract was canceled and we'd all be laid off in January. Actually that's not to bad of a bonus, I really really hated the job.
Link Posted: 12/19/2003 4:48:14 PM EDT
I got a 7lb Hen Turkey for my bonus. Woo-frickin-Hooo!
Link Posted: 12/19/2003 4:51:05 PM EDT
No bounus, though we never get one. No COL this year either. Eh, at least I'm working. Worst one I ever had was a bonus check for ten dollars and thirty seven cents. Why bother? [rolleyes]

Got a extra Week of PAID Vaction [beer] or I can turn it in for cash.

Zip, Zilch, nothing, but I have the pleasure of doing it again next year.

I got the usual. A $25 gift card to Wally World.

Same here. Our most recent Quarterly Bonus was $1100 before taxes(withholding is done at a higher rate for our bonuses...about 45%). Normally, it had been about $350 - $400 before taxes. We did so well that Management raised the performance standards for bonuses for the next fiscal year. Bust your ass & sacrifice to help the company make a profit(we've been the only profitable production plant in the Co. for the past 6 quarters) and what do they do? Screw you anyway. Pricks.

I work for the local county, and our bonus is 4 hours added to our vacation time to use whenever. Pretty lame I think. CH

Almost $1500. Using it for christms gifts
