You have to understand that the economic crash is just now getting to small town USA. Yes, it may be better on a national scale, but us on down the line have yet to recover. You should feel lucky to still have your job. Consider that your bonus, and quit you complaining.

Yes, obviously their talking about Roach Conveyor, unless you know of some other factory owned by the Roach's in Trumann..O and the CITY OF TRUMANN BONUSES are invested in that hell hole on South Ozark by the old auction. GOOD ONE MAYOR SHEILA. Yeah she must have seen potential in that 100 year old pool hall and Barber shop. It was condemned so she bought it for who knows what reason.

I hear ya. I've been at the same job since 1999 and have given 110% every year. This year I was asked to find ways to save the company money which I did and was thanked for. We also had more business this year than last. I was told a month ago bonuses would not be as big as last year. I said I understood when I really didn't given what I had done for the company. Knowing they would do what they can and anything would be appreciated I let it be. I was just thankful to be a person who is still employed. Here it is Dec. 22nd depending on the Christmas bonus like so many others to buy presents for their family and nothing, not even mention of it. Feeling unappreciated,bummed out and mad what can you do? A Griswold Christmas this year but not as funny. Merry Christmas.

its not really a griswald christmas if you think about it...in the movie he did get his bonus in the end (and it was doubled) that shit wont happen in trumann. the only thing that would even make it close to a griswald christmas here would be if we all had a retarded cousin bring their family in for a few days with a piece of shit camper and a nasty dog. and something tells me this is the town for that to happen in. as far as the roach comment goes, they are a greedy family and dont care one bit about their employees. i have three family members who work there and all we are gonna have from them this year is a ham. i remember some great christmas parties, and the other post is right, yes they gave their employees a raise but also the insurance went up the same day. and they were told in order for them to get the raise the prices had to go up on the conveyors. the roaches make a big profit every year, those employees DID earn that raise. and they deserve more than that. stop being so tight with that company money and start giving back to the people that deserve it.(the ones who got you where you are now)

Please quit thinking everything is just handed out. If u dont like the situation you are in, go somewhere else and work or get trained to do something else.That is the trouble somewhat these days that people have an "entitlement" mentality and think someone owes them....friends let me be clear:work hard, do your best,focus on others more than yourselves and you will see good things have their way of coming around!!!!!

speaking of having things handed out...when you start a job you fill out an application, you either agree or disagree with all the terms on the application, right? that is considered your job contract. so are you saying its ok for roachs to go back on their word on their contract? because when i started, it talked about all the benefits of the job, the pay, the vacations and etc...well they dont pay a full day for vacations anymore. are you telling me thats fair? hell no, its not. i hate when people like you get on here and start running their mouth saying if you dont like your job find another one. ya ya ya heard that a million times. the last time i checked it was normal for people to vent their frustration. you obviously arent one of trumanns middle class hard working families or you would understand exactly the point that is trying to be made here. if you think working hard, doing your best and focusing on others will get you anywhere at roach conveyors you are WRONG. there are a lot of people that go to work everyday, work hard, do their best and then some. and never get a pat on the back or "good job" or anything. and yeah i know they cant go around all the time doing that but damn, once in a while would be nice. oh well that will never happen. maybe one day it will be a good place to work but for now its ok to dream.

A lot of people don't get bonuses. City, school, businesses don't have to give employees a bonus. There used to be a time when people were happy with a turkey or a ham. Now everyone wants more.

Just wait because pretty soon people who get checks will get upset because they don't get a Christmas bonus!

Lucky to have a job?? Shit. Cheap ass multi billion dollar companies. Always had a job, not lucky at all. Even a $500 bonus is BS.
