Do you receive a Christmas (or Holiday, or End of Year) Bonus from your Employer?

If so, what sector do you work in?

I do not, and I work in education. My wife does, and she works in the medical field. Her bonus is about $2,000.

I'm a SAHM mom now, but worked in finance for many year, as does my husband now. Big bonuses, larger than the salary.

It depends on company performance.

On a regular good year, it's 10% of annual income. 75% of the bonus will be paid before Christmas and 25% during Feb next year.

I work in corporate finance for a subscription business.

DH gets no bonus. He works in academia.

Mine is like this too. My "bonus" varies from 0-30% of my pay. My husband works for the same company and his varies from 0-16%. We work in property insurance. We get 75% in Dec and the rest in Jan/Feb

DH does not get a Christmas bonus, just a bonus at a different time of the year.

It varies anywhere between 17% and 28% of his salary. It all depends on how well the company did the year before.

yes. i work at a relatively large church (large when you consider there are 385 churches in our county! can't sling a dead cat without hitting a church around here! lol), and the church board voted us each a week's pay for our Christmas bonus this year. we got our bonuses thanksgiving week, because the pastor wanted us to be able to take advantage of black friday. i had just bought myself a new, DSLR camera, so my bonus helped pay for that.

I work in television. We got 1 1/2 weeks pay. Last year it was $0. The couple years before that was a week.

I work in the FinAid office for the local college. Not a thing.

My wife and mom work for the same school system (private) and they get a bonus, $500. Plus all the stuff parents give.

My husband and I work in education and get no bonus (nor would we expect one). My daughter works in the medical field and hers was about $3500.

I've worked in several different fields, including education, archives/library, retail, a large and wealthy church, event planning. In my 30 years of paid full-time employment, the only time I've ever gotten a holiday bonus was when I worked retail.

The rule for that bonus was that you got $25 for every year you'd worked there, up to $100. The owners of that store really felt like they were sooooo generous with that bonus. LOL One year I couldn't make it to their holiday party and I got a lecture about how I owed them an appearance at their party to "pay them back" for my bonus of $50 (which didn't amount to much after taxes).

Oops... the church did give me a Christmas bonus. I don't know how I almost forgot their extraordinary munificence -- they gave me a paid HALF day off for Christmas if it landed on a weekday.

My dh has never gotten a holiday bonus. He's worked in education and museums his entire career.

My mother was a nurse. No bonuses for her entire career. My father used to get bonuses back in the day (1960s-70s) when he was a mechanic and plumber working for someone else. We pretty much lived paycheck to paycheck and I can remember my parents expecting and relying on the bonus to "pay for" Christmas. It was always a source of anxiety for me because the bonus was never given until Christmas Eve and I was always worried our Christmas presents would have to be returned to the store.

I work in entertainment and never have received a bonus.

My first ever entertainment job for a bigger corporate company (having moved on from the mom and pop where I got my start) was SUCH a tease. I started there Dec. 13th, they handed out bonus checks to EVERYONE the following week; I didn't expect to get one, nor did I receive one.

I did, however, get assigned the task to hand out the bonus checks. My new boss thought it would be a great way to allow me to introduce myself and everyone would have good thoughts about me since I was handing them loads of money in a cute little white envelope. All the time I was handing them out, I was thinking, "Do a good job and next year YOU might get one of these!"

Yeah, they stopped them the following year.
