    They decided to cancel the holiday bonus that drivers were working towards all year and didn't even have the courtesy to tell anyone . That should tell you all you need to know about what kind of company this is .

    I'm so sorry, that is bad, esp if you were expected it for holiday spending.

    Husband said they have extended themselves too far, and caused a lot of heartache at the other company they bought with the old drivers.

    Celadon has almost always been a bottom feeder............

    Do more research before picking a company.

    I and the other employees working at a paint store lost a bonus one year because we had a warehouse employee giving away products out the backdoor and we had a terrible inventory audit that fall. It would have been around $380., which was a good amount back in the 80's.

    Companies are great about getting away with murder. It can happen anywhere really, not just bottom feeders.

    It is, however, a 'bonus', something which I, for one, never count on until it's in my check.

    I know your sentiment. It still is a pain when sales are metfor the quarter in our case, and a crooked employee helped himself to merchandise. He got his later on, burned his girlfriends car and they put him in Parchman for arson.

    Agreed! Just because it worked out for Clark Griswold in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"...I wouldn't recommend anyone to kidnap their boss to get their Christmas bonus.
    NEVER count on a "bonus" to be part of your income.

    That said; it IS a crappy thing to do to your employees (regardless of occupation)...if indeed one is accustomed to getting one every year.

    Mmmmmmm.....Jelly of The Month is a gift that gives all year long. LOL!
