Awesome bonus for the lower level employees!!

At my level (bottom rung ) I get 3% of whatever they determine our IPP is.
Ex: IPP payout = 100% Of my yearly gross. I get 3% of my 100% yearly gross. Our IPP can be anywhere from 0% to 110%+.

Our company doesn't give bonuses. Just visa gift cards and then take the taxes on them out of your paycheck at an almost 30% rate.

We get a longevity check each year. It's calculated on months of service times a dollar amount that increases every five years to a max of $13 per month. It's better than the $25 visa gift card my registered nurse wife gets, but even at nearly 20 years it's nowhere close to this!

A friend of mine posted this this. Not sure how much is true but either way it's a awesome gesture from the boss


"What it doesn't say is that he could have saved the jobs of roughly 300 people who were laid off at the beginning of the year due to the economy and still given everyone a nice bonus. This also doesn't talk about the numerous discounts that Hilcorp is forcing on its service providers who are struggling to stay in business. Maybe he could have given them 5% back on their last invoice instead of sending emails to all of them yesterday asking for another price cut. Just food for thought. "

That's a heck of a deal but they'll make more than that just off the good press.

I'm fortunate to work for a company that offers an ESOP and a Christmas bonus. The ESOP alone is a great reason to stick around at least until I'm fully vested (5 years).

Companies that give back to their employees reap the greatest rewards.

Why on earth would they give service providers a break?

They aren't exactly slow to go up on prices in a boom.

A company's role is to stay healthy, if that means being generous to staff and squeezing contractors, then that's what you do.

Yeah there are always people finding a way to bash successful business owners no matter what they do. Ill bet all those laid off got generous severance packages. And what are you supposed to do in a prolonged downturn - keep everybody on the payroll even if there is no work for them to do?

I don't understand the envy some people seem to dwell on when news likes this pops up...I'm in the OG biz now & was surprised to receive the $100 Christmas gift at the Co party yesterday.

It's a smart run biz & been around a long time...they have a war chest to cover these sorts of down turns, but certainly wasn't expecting any sort of bonus when you aren't profitable. Still, there was grumbling by some & had to remind them to look around the area and be thankful we are not like other companies who are laying off / cutting hours, etc. I hate seeing envy eat up people & says a lot about their underlying character.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

These guys are actually one of my customers & will be taking over about 75 units mas/menos in the deep south tx region from Conoco starting in Jan 2016...the success of one affects many more & I'm glad to be a part of it in any fashion & happy for all those involved. Especially my employer.

So was a large yearly bonus a part of the compensation package you signed up for?

I'd bet his cpa said he needed to "gift" some money so he did that for bonuses. I know of pro ball players that do similar stuff for their families and friends.
