so i've been with my company for five years, always been successful, always exceeded my sales goals, etc. got passed by on a few promotions, which is normal, and fine. just recently got one. after being dragged over the coals for three months on start date, i started February first. so i've been doing my job for 22 days now. i STILL don't have a comp plan! i have no idea what i'm getting paid! the last paycheck i got was the salary from my old job (20% of my income was salary, 50% commission, 30% bonus). so my take home was just over $300. this new job is supposed to be pure salary, so that figure was way low. i emailed and asked about it. turns out my comp plan wasn't done and they where going to take care of it on the next paycheck (every two weeks)
so now, i have a paycheck coming on Wednesday. and no idea what it's going to be. i live paycheck to paycheck, so it's kind of a big deal.

sorry, just angry and had to vent.

i'll go and smoke a bowl of something nice now.

That would be very frustrating. I worked for a small dirt hauling company years ago, and had paychecks be short in hours, and even had a couple bounce. Needless to say, I parted ways with them.

I feel you SDJ. I have been in a few doozy job situations in my time. All of them in the dreaded Bay Area Hi Tech job scene. One of the reasons why I got the hell out of dodge 12 years ago.

After I moved I finally landed on my feet & I have been with the same company now for 11 years and yes, a little respect goes along way. The pay is just okay, the benefits are average. However the employee moral is high. Everyone is treated very well, pay raises happen yearly as do bonuses and service awards. For the most part I put in my 40 hours a week and I am done and I have time for my wife and kids. How many IT jobs can you say that about? I may not be rich when I retire, but I'll be comfortable. Money is nice but it is definitely not everything.

Steady as she goes baby.

Selling crack to schoolkids has its advantages, no taxes, etc...but the benefits are terrible.

I've worked for so many employers like that over the years......treated like sh*t and then expected to be grateful for the peanuts you might get paid as long as they don't screw it up.

That all changed five or so years ago when I started working for a local product design company...........me and the boss, at work having a great time, if the surf is good then we catch it, if the shrooms are up then off we go....stuff gets done on time....this is how it should be.

I feel for you man....

sdj, if you are in a situation where they are simply not paying you for time you worked, or commissions on what was sold, you can call the US Labor Department, and you will have a check in hand so fast, it will make your head swim.

just joining a union isn't that easy here Gumball, Some work places are union some are not, a union has no power in a company which has not agreed to allow a union to organize it's employees

Works, but sure doesn't make you very popular with the employer though.
I saw that happen a few years ago (family member), and you're right - it sure was sorted out quickly! Laughing

I love my company. We are a passionate group and we make amazing product. I also love what I do. I love retail, and I love helping retailers out and partnering with them. I just don't like how my situation is being handled. Thanks for the support brothers! This bowl is for you! And no it isn't crack, Kyle Wink

Until you get caught, then the bennies are GREAT! 3 hots and a cot, free medical, all the time in the world to write that novel. No smoking, though. And your cellmate(s) could be a little scary. Other than that, no worries.

Rob, my popularity has continued to wane the last 4 1/2 years, and I have been there for 5. I have a close personal relationship with the head of HR, ever since I filed a discrimination case with the EEOC. Wink
