Performance Bonus is great here

It depends on the facility. I'm at RNO4, we have maxed the bonus 8 out of the last 9 months. But every FC is its own beast. It's 4% for the facility and 4% for attendance. If you use UPT, it takes 2% each occurrence. Oct, Nov, and Dec it doubles. 16% total 8%/8%. Last year I didn't use any UPT and my bonuses we're about $480 after tax. Lots of overtime durring peak so it's actually 16% of pay which durring peak is about 110 hours every 2 weeks (about) so not only is there a 16% VCP, but it's 16% of a 30% increase in hours at time and a half. Last year I was making base wage because I just started. And I've heard from some people who've been there a couple of years that at max payout it can easily be upwards of $800. I said, it depends on the FC. But it's 3 months of increase, I think when I got $480 we hit 14%. So if you add it all up..roughly $2600 in pay, plus $400 in VCP is $3000 for the month of December. Of course it comes on the last check in the following month.

Worse part about performance bonus is that it is based upon bogus rates which will not hold up in legal court if someone can take them to court. Also, they rates too high with complete disregard to long term health well being of employees.
