    $300 a week bonus? That seems stupid. Why not jack up the hour rate to pull in workers? Even $5 bucks a hour would be cheaper.

    This one will be getting all the tips on the last day (and it's been a very lucrative tip season).

    I've had some helpers that don't even get a goodbye when I drop them off.

    I had a helper one year who was an executive with Southern Pacific Railroad. He was in his 50's and took 6 weeks off during the Christmas season. Whatever he made, he used it to buy Christmas gifts. He told me what subdivision he lived in and it was the same one our division manager lived in. $300,000 homes and up, and that was almost 35 years ago. Good worker. I should have begged *him* for gas money. lol.

    No, it’s 10.20 per hour, plus $300 per week if yoy are available to work every day.

    The $300 is only awarded to you if you are available to work whatever they ask of you Monday through Friday. This way, they don’t have to pay the $300 if someone calls off or says they can’t work or something, which happens a lot according to some of the drivers I’ve been with. Not stupid at all really. It’s actually the smartest thing they could do.

    No, the smartest person thing would be to offer a competitive wage.

    Yeah I got it on my paycheck today, which is my second paycheck. My coordinator told me it always takes two weeks. I didn’t ask why. Doesn’t matter as long as I get it.

    I mean, they’re only looking to keep us for the month of December. Most of us are college students on break, or retired people looking to make an extra buck. We’re not looking for anything crazy. Most seasonal retail options around Chicago pay $10 an hour, so this job’s wage is already higher, and even moreso with the bonus. That’s pretty competitive. It’s just :censored2:ty work.
