$3K won't compensate you for the days worth of interviews it takes to even be a janitor there.

The turkey contains potassium benzoate.

(That's bad.)

K.B.O. Winston: No hot cocoa sampler box?


Eh, it's for the better.  The cherry dark chocolate is the only good one out of those things.

I've never seen a real sign on bonus.  There's always conditions.

It's more like "You're hired, but to get the bonus you must keep working in this hell hole for an unbearable amount of time.  Most likely out come is that we'll fire you the day before your eligible for no reason (or a made up reason) so that other people can try for a sign on bonus".

You could take us to court, sure.  But if you're working at an Amazon warehouse I doubt you can afford a lawyer.

It's more common than you think.  Hiring talent is a biatch.  So there are conditions made to reward employees who stick around and make the cut.  Not sure about your issues with not getting paid out upon the first day.

Getting hired doesn't mean you get to stick around.  Prove your work and loyalty and then you get paid.

Then WTF is a signing bonus? If it's a longevity bonus or an attendance bonus, then don't call it a signing bonus.

A true signing bonus would be paid upon your first day at work and then maybe they have some provisions to where you have to pay it back if you make the decision to leave.

I dunno, if you work at Amazon in Alabama making their corporate $15/hr minimum, things could be a lot worse in life.

Oh, and I know there's issues with their work culture, but Thanksgiving bonuses aren't too common in anywhere, while signing bonuses are.
