Long Service Awards - what you packing


#1

At my last company you got given a Mont Blanc fountain pen for five years service. They went bust when I was at about 4.5 years… I just picked up my five years here. A certificate and a picture of me receiving it on the intranet! A great reward.


#2

Never been anywhere long enough to get one.


#3

It’s my ten year anniversary next month. I’ll let you know (it will involve me getting doughnuts in and not much else)


#4

What did sean give you? I got a signed photo for my decade’s service to the boards.


#5

Nothing.


#6

For five years at the bookshop in november i shall be given additional work.


#7

Would you like us to knock up a certificate?


#8

After twenty years I’m hoping I’ll get a pension that will keep me alive, permission to not have to work here any more and a bus pass.


#9

Think you get an extra days annual leave added on every five years?

I can’t imagine ever receiving a long service award because I can’t imagine ever working somewhere for more than four years.


#10

if possible. but if it were accurate then in fact you would assign me to make the certificate for myself but ‘we need it yesterday’


#11

Oooh nice!

I got $25,000.


#12

Nothing but I get an email from my old manager downstairs on the anniversary of the day I joined. It has the adverse effect than his intention (unless he’s doing it to mug me off).
