    Weekly? Biweekly? Monthly? And are you on salary or hourly wage?

    I get paid monthly. The last weekday of each month to be exact.

    I work Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 8:30am to 3:00pm. I get paid hourly, so generally I can calculate what my paycheck is going to be... which is nice:lol-sign:

    I used to hate only being paid monthly, but it has taught me to be an even better saver/spender than I was before. So that is one plus to it haha

    I'm self-employed. I pay myself monthly and the amount depends on how many client appointments I have during that month.

    15th and the 30th for my regular job on salary. For the umpiring, I get cash at the field sometimes, but mostly, I get checks monthly (in-season) or following an "off-season" tournament. That pay is all "per game".

    Every two weeks on Thursday. I work anywhere from 32-40 hours a week. I can look up what my pay will be (like, what will be deposited in my bank) so that's pretty helpful. I get paid hourly.

    Usually work 10-7 Monday, Thursday and Friday. Then 9-6 Saturday. I've been working 3-7 or 10-7 on Wednesdays as well. 4-5 days a week, basically.

    I like getting paid every two weeks. It's enough to pay bills immediately. (So I don't have to 'save' until the next paycheck to pay my car payment.) It's also pretty nice to go from $0 (or under $50) to $500. ;)

    Biweekly, hourly. I can pretty much base my paycheck on at least being 80 hours for the two weeks, plus a little bit to a lot of overtime.

    My paycheck is based on an hourly wage and I get paid every other Friday. Which is super nice when there happens to be an extra Friday in the month....three paychecks! Whoot!

    I get paid every other Friday, hourly. I get in 36-41 hours a week, depending on if it's my Saturday to work or if we have a meeting that week.

    Every job I've had has been biweekly so I'm used to it. Back when I worked very part-time minimum wage jobs, it was nice because I felt like I was making more money lol... getting a check for $140 just seemed more satisfying than a check for $70. :p

    Biweekly and salary, which blows depending on your job (and your salary...), but luckily my bosses are great and my schedule is pretty darn 9-5 routinely. Only one time did I put in overtime (well, twice, because it was both days over the weekend), and they gave me a full day off to compensate. So it works out okay.

    I was weekly and hourly at the produce place which was kinda weird. It was more or less the same as I was making at the station but more checks FELT like I was making less money.

    Every other place I've worked has been biweekly and hourly, with the exception of when I finally got the station (after three+ years) to commit to a salary.

    Every other Thursday, which means sometimes 3 times in a month. Hourly, usually 40 hours per week but it has bumped up to 50 hours during the busy season. Company finally stopped the wage freeze (4 years but still better than the company shutting down & management actually took pay cuts), so I got a little bit of a raise this year, which was promptly taken by taxes - I think I actually take home less pay now. Sigh.
