    for Thanksgiving we got a catered meal. Today I got my bonus. It is based on years worked and amount earned last year and mine after taxes came out to over $700.00. We are also going to have a christmas party/reception at a nice rest. with an open bar.

    Usually, our cafeteria is closed for night shift on Thanksgiving. After polling night shift workers, they decided to open for a meal that night. The kicker was we had to pay for Thanksgiving meal.... my bill was over $6 for turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing and pumpkin pie.. course the pie alone was $2.60. There was a poor turnout. I don't think they realized most people already ate the same thing before coming into work that night... we wanted the regular cafeteria fare. I imagine they'll close the cafeteria next year.

    We get a turkey at Thanksgiving (about 10lb). We get a free meal but working in the ER we are usually too busy to go. If you work night turn you get a boxed lunch (cold). The docs usually sponsor a party but not many attend any more. No money or gift cards/certificates.

    $25.00 gift card if you are a full-time employee. No Christmas party unless we do on our own. I am sure the administrative employees get to have a party, they just try and keep it quiet from the worker bees.

    We get a $25 gift certificate to the hospital gift shop. This can be exchanged to be used at local shops in the area as well. In the past, when I worked on the surgical floor, the surgeons bought all the staff on that floor $50 gift certificates which were really nice. For the most part, its just been the $25. It sounds like Im pretty lucky compared to what i've read!

    NO BONUS....I think we are getting a polo shirt. not my style. Also sometimes free food, if you have time to get it. A couple of years the department heads cooked for us..Now that was YUMMY. But I have never received cash like the hubby does on his engineering job.

    This has been entertaining. I specially like the little quotes at the end of the messages. We get a $25 gift certificate, and $25 to the company store. They have useful things like flashlights, blankets, etc. I put them in the truck or use them when we go camping. We used to get a fruit box as well which I liked very much. I always hear someone complain about the amount and the quality of the gifts. In some cases it would never be enough for some people.

    I am happy I get to send my kids to college and I like the work (interventional cardiology) and the folks I work with. :heartbeat

    never got anything in my hospital years, except a xmas party with free drinks... at my current corporate job, 10% of my annual salary.
    [font="comic sans ms"]where do you work!!.......i need that kind of bonus
    i am a mexican nurse and for 10 year i worked for the mexican national oil company and i got good bonus at the end of the year, in summer and in january 6th which is the national nursing day, but in america i haven't worked for any company that gives that kind of bonus.however , for the rest of my friends (nurses) working at other hospitals they did not get anything.......[font="franklin gothic medium"]i think they were even charged for the christmas time and if they ever did not show up to work any holiday shift they just got fired, that easy, [font="comic sans ms"]anyways, happy holidays enjoy your bonus.

    I don't do nursing anymore. I am doing medical transcription. This is my second Christmas. Most bonuses go by years of service. Last year I had been with them for 3 months and I got $50. Plus we get another bonus (based on the years income) in February which was about $300 (remember, I'd only been there about 6 months).

    I'm excited to see what this year holds! :spin:

    At hospital--nothing, at the ECF-$50.

    Bonus? you mean, some nursing facilities actually give bonuses; all we get is more paperwork to do. It would be nice to believe that the companies we work for actually thought of us as human beings and not just a name on a slip of paper that allow them to keep thier doors open.
