Myshare +

Can anyone explain how the amount you get for Myshare + is determined?

Because two people who work about the same amount of hours in the same department, who only have a couple of months between hire dates. One is getting $400 and one $90.

I don't get how it's determined. Seems a bit unfair to me.

the myshare is a quarterly bonus so if that person was hired half way after the quarter yes they will get a lot less

does it matter if you transferred? I only got 71 and I transferred in september. So disappointed. :(

Yes you get the portion of the bonus for which you worked in that store. On the other hand, if your old store gets a bonus, you'll get the portion that you were in that store, too.

It's the myshare +, so it's for qualifying for all 4 quarters last year.

And the one getting less received at least 3 if not all 4 of the bonuses last year. So getting 3/4 less then the other doesn't make any sense at all.

I dunno about your store, but they messed it up at mine and supposedly we're getting a second bonus on the next check if ours wasn't accurate on this one.

I have no clue. It doesn't make sense to me. My last Myshare was at the [current store I'm at; store #3] and my "bonus" on this paycheck is $20. Go figure. I think my store might have issues like ardnaid's.

There is a 6 month eligibility period for a new associate to wait until they are eligible to bonus with the company. Say the associate was hired last June - they would not be eligible to bonus until December. They would see a prorated bonus based on the date they were eligible until January 31. The eligibility date makes a huge difference in what an associate will receive for their first bonus. I had an associate with the same question - why did I only get $19? Because this associate was hired at the end of June, so they were eligible at the end of December through the end of January.

Yeah, I remember that.

My store manager was saying in order to receive the whole amount you had to be hired before Feb 08. Which the said associate was hired Nov 07.

It would seem to me that, that associate must have received at least 3 of the bonuses during the year, and should have got at least 3/4 of the total amount but didn't. *Shrugs*

I heard they are getting rid of the Myshare + because of so many complaints.
