    I couldn't find a direct answer for this question via search.
    Is it true you get paid weekly?
    Also, will you get paid at the end of your first week or second week?
    Also, i'll be at freight if that matters

    We get paid weekly, the friday after a pay period ends.

    Basically, at the end of a week, you're receiving pay for last week's work, and you won't see a dime from your work this week until next friday.

    They would withhold all of your paychecks if it wasnt against the law

    That are dated for that week's Friday.

    Technically, they're not supposed to give 'em to you on Thursday just because they have 'em on Thursday. Most places don't give much of a f***, though, and hand out checks the second they come through.

    Occasionally you'll get a dick of a teller that won't take a check dated for the next day. Most liquor stores, though? No problem, 24/7, it seems.

    They really shouldn't be handing out paychecks on Thursdays for the mere reason that if you pay someone on Thursday, guess who might not show up to work on Friday?

    With most employees having direct deposit, what would it matter?

    but direct deposit doesn't get deposited until Friday. But yes, it is early enough that you have the money before you would start your shift and could call off.

    And unless you worked the preload, you would not be out of bed yet. If you worked the preload the banks would not be open until you got off.

    It hits my account with my current bank late thursday night, but with my previous credit union they made it available first thing Thursday morning and even used that as a selling point in their advertisements. When they get the eft transmittal they make it available for the transaction due date less one day. Seems to be working well for them.

    We had a guy like hat. No showed on Friday so many times that management started always covering his route on Fridays! center manager said if he showed up it was a bonus.

    He even joked with his customers that UPS was dumb to give him the money on Thursday night. Geez!

    Took like five warning letters and three working terminations before he finally didn't get to come back.

    How about this Friday, the Fourth? When will we get paid this week for last week's work, anyone know? I have direct deposit, but it's not entirely clear to me that pay will arrive on a holiday.
