So I get to go to work today... for a full 8 hours. Son of a bitch. Work is not my favorite place to be spending my time, it does, however, provide some benefits. The large orange retailer I work for hands out bonus checks twice a year. They call it Success Sharing. Full time associates get bigger checks, part-timers? Nice but not great. Being a part-timers, I was expecting one of the 'nice' checks. That is not the case. You see, the old HR person chose not to change my status to part-time until the beginning of January. Four months of my Success Sharing was calculated using the full time %, so my net is about 4 times what your average part-timer gets.
The estimate my car repair was emailed to me yesterday. I have $250 deductible. Can you guess where some of that Success Sharing is going to go?
