Self Employed with no employee's. No bonus now, obviously, but seldom ever saw them with previous bosses. Think that is pretty good to hear that several employers on this board think well enough of their employees to give bonus's.

Rock on and Merry Christmas Everyone

no bonus but do give them out, own a small electrical cont. business 25 emp. we start the season on the day before thanksgiving with a half day paid for 8 and i take all out lunch and we take the friday off after t-day paid its a great insentive to keep employees's, then we do a Xmas dinner with a half day Xmas eve paid for 8 and all receive a Xmas bonus from 300 - 2500. all based on length of time employed and performance over the year. we gave out 45,500 this year (but that does not include mine lol) in bonus's but in nj its hard to find good help and it has worked in my favor when workers brag to friend's they seem to call looking for job's at the end of jan its pretty funny. we do the same for new years lunch and 1/2 day pd for 8. i some times during the year give rewards , credit card and let them grab dinner if there production is up and random bonus's when we do good on a job. i repeat nj is hard to get good help it is big union area and i have to compete to there packages this seems to work most of my men do better then union packages.

My Christmas Bonus was not a damn thing! Merry F'in Christmas. I won't be renewing my contract there. However I'm happy to hear that some of you got a bonus.

THe bonus came...$20.00 gift card to supermarket. Honestly I don't need it that bad, would have rather seen them make a donation to a fund for the kids or something.
