    Biweekly on fridays- every 80 hours put in. I'm hourly technically but since I never do OT its pretty much salary. I work a set schedule every week of a standard work week so there's never any wonder if I'm going to be scheduled. They really discourage overtime unless necessary. I'm paid the exact same amount every time. I do like the three friday months.... 3 paychecks in a month is nice lol.

    We also get a christmas bonus (small) and a end of the year bonus around christmas. I like that time of year. I feel rich, haha, but it mostly all goes to buying gifts though.

    I get paid every week. I'm paid a commission. so all depends how many dogs I groom and how expensive their groom was.

    I make around the same eery week give or take 100 bucks or so. so its easy for me to figure out what it will be. And if i want extra, I book extra clients.

    I get paid every other Friday, and hourly. I work 40 hours a week, so 80 hours on a paycheck, but it usually ranges from 75-80 hours on each paycheck, depending on my schedule those weeks - if I had a shorter day or whatever. My paychecks don't vary more than $50 in either direction.

    Eta, you all get paid every 2 weeks?? Nice! I think?? It's usual here to be paid monthly unless you do casual work.

    I will say that getting my paycheck monthly (and it being a pretty decent amount), does make it a little bit more satisfying :p If I got paid weekly, my paychecks would be around $150 (give or take some - depends on if the office is closed for any holidays, I have to take off early, etc.), but with monthly it just seems like I get so much more :lol-sign:

    I'm paid bi-weekly and I'm hourly which I prefer. I rarely work any overtime but if I do I want to be paid for it. My company isn't above screwing people over through. In some of the really busy departments they have "promoted" some people to salary so they don't have to pay them overtime.

    If the company is doing really well we get a yearly bonus... I've been with the company 8.5 years and I've gotten 3 bonuses. They usually equate to about the same as a normal paycheck after taxes.

    The professionals are all salaried here and it's because they do so much overtime. They have to get up several times a night even on weekends for updates. Yeah... Not for me. But they have a much more lax out of office policy than us hourlies do. I have to record 15 mins or longer and they can take up to 4 hours without it counting as time off. But still... Waking up at 2-3 times every night and being on call 24/7... I'll take my shedule.

    In 2 years here I have never worked overtime really. My boss will instead let you take off early or come in late instead. As long as uour week balances out.

    I usually have something coming in 5/7 days/week. I get paid whenever someone picks their dog up, or whenever a training session has been completed.

    Biweekly on Thursday, hourly.

    ETA: I'm potentially accepting another job, and that will likely be salary, biweekly on Thursday.

    I get paid weekly on salary, Matt gets paid every other week as hourly. I'm lucky that my company frowns on overtime unless it's absolutely necessary (especially since they took away our comp time program for overtime).

    Monthly and I'm salary at one job. It's nice in the summer when there's very little work but awful in winter when there's tons haha

    In my other 2 jobs I'm paid hourly and I get paid at the end of my shift. I think at the job I've applied for I get paid weekly at an hourly rate.

    I am an hourly employee (40+ hours/week) and I get paid once, at the end of each month.

    Unless it's December, where I get paid in the middle of the month and then not again until January. I will never get used to that. Ever.
