I am still hesitant to use some of my better QOTD ideas since we are still struggling to get everyone back.

Have you ever worked at a place that gave out some sort of a bonus?   What was it?

Sorry so late...

I don't really consider a turkey a "bonus."  When I think "bonus," I think $$$$$, cashola, greenbacks, bread, moolah, smackeroos, dough, loot or simoleons.

We used to get a turkey here at the hospital at Christmas but then about 10 years ago they started giving gift cards to grocery stores for $20.  I also get a $50 gift card to Meijers each year from my union... but that is not a bonus either... it is money that has been set aside from the union dues we pay all year for a member Christmas party but we voted to forego the party and just get the gift cards instead. 

My Ashleigh gets WAY more of a Christmas bonus than I ever thought about getting... but, then again, I do get paid more than she does the rest of the year.  My hubby told me he will be getting a turkey this year from his plant too.. cool, now I don't have to buy one!

If we are talking seniority/longevity bonuses, I did get $200 gift card to a local mall after completing my 30th year here at the hospital.  But, we only get a gift card for every 5 or 10 years, it's not annually.
