    I don’t get one.  DH was told before he would get into the bonus structure, but it turns out he won’t get one until next quarter.  It kind of sucks, because people who are below him make more and get large bonuses, but doing their job would kinda suck.

    Nope, never have gotten one and–most likely–never will. I’m a fourth grade teacher.

    My fiance just got his first bonus… it was $185 (odd number) and it was taxed (don’t know if that is the usual?). He’s a carpenter.

    I do not…well, not this year.  My company does service year bonuses for 5, 10, 15, etc years of service.  If you hit a milestone, then you get a bonus!  

    My FI got a nice bonus ‘surprise’ in a card last week.  It was a surprise to him, but he learned that since he is now a Foreman in the company, this is what they do for you!!  It was a VERY generous amount as well.

    When I was younger and worked at walmart we got a larger discount on 3 items.

    I’m in law school now so I’m not working but at my prior jobs I received Christmas bonuses. It was just a couple hundred dollars but it was very nice to have around that time of year.

    I get a company performance bonus on November 30 each year.  It is equal to one month of my salary.

    I got $350 this year. Last year it was $200. I’m glad to get something, but when you find out a coworker received $8,500, it kinda bursts your bubble :/

    @lolot:  I do. It was bigger at my last company, but I do get one. I’m not sure if you want me to actually tell you or just vote in the poll, so I voted, lol.

    nope, never had one… or actually know any one who gets one. that would be really nice. my hospital is going threw some tough times but usually every year you get a percentage of a raise. so i go up a buck in jan. i did pick “other” because they gave us all a turkey this year 😉
