I get a yearly bonus, based on company profitability, so no, it's not really a Christmas bonus. It is, for tax reasons, payable up until March 15 of the following year, so I can usuaslly count on receiving it right around that date. It has been as little as $200 during the down times and VERY generous when times are good. I started with this company in 1979, left for a short while to move back to Flagstaff, and then returned, and have been there ever since, in August 1984.
We have, over the years, been given turkeys or gift certificate or gift cards as thank-yous at Thanksgiving or Christmas, once again, depending on company profitability, which I think is a nice gesture. When the company is doing well it is smart to share some of that with the people who are making it happen.
