They approved the Christmas one meanwhile doing away with the gift cards for all major holidays and the ones you got on your birthday and anniversary with the company. I think it was 5-6 years ago they did away with them other gift cards. At least it’s mighty nice of them to think that everyone’s hard work during the holidays and now the pandemic is worth a loaf of bread, a pack of balonga , and a gallon of milk you can get at the store coupled with the measly $150/week check part-timers get. At my old store (I still talk to a lot of my former coworkers), they didn’t get ANY gift cards and not even the usual p-t luck dinner for the holidays for 3-4 years now. The very last time they did it (it was a few months before I quit), they fed us some slop. It was raw potatoes and cheese, and some breakfast slop consisting of spoiled eggs, bacon, and sausage topped with molded and diced bagel croutons. That’s the one thing too I will never miss about GE either is how in order to come up with our holiday pay, they would cut hours even more to save on payroll. They use that savings from those two weeks to pay for the holiday OT they had to pay everyone in the store. They never did this when I first started-it was during the last 4 years I was with the company that they started all of this mess. That’s no holiday pay-that’s your savings from two weeks prior. Pay attention to the schedules right before a holiday and you’ll see them doing it. It’s really noticeable what they’re doing especially if you’re a part-timer. With full-timer’s (who are usually department heads), they really don’t mess with their pay. The only thing they’ll do to them is instead of having them work the usual 48 hours, they get 8 hours cut from their schedules for the next two weeks until the holidays.
