As long as I've been with LUX we have received $5.00 per associate for a Christmas party. Of course we have 17 associates in our location, so we get $85.00. We use it on a busy day of insurance week to order pizzas, sub trays, drinks, etc. My store loves it. It's not meant to be a Christmas bonus. You can give yourselves a bonus and you know how; if you don't, talk to your manager. So quit belly aching and enjoy what you do, or find a job that gives you what you want. Patients can see your attitude. I'm so glad I don't have a bunch of negative people working with me. Try getting our benefits anywhere else.
