Belgium is much the same - however our cashflow is helped by the fact that I am paid monthly on the 14th and my partner is paid monthly on the 25th

I get paid Bi-weekly which is every two week. Interesting!! I didn't know in other parts of the world that getting paid weekly or bi-weekly was NOT the norm.

Is it better that way??

Weekly, and in cash. I'm one of the longest-serving employees (33 years) in the company and, despite bribes and other inducements, the company cannot change this without our consent. And there are still a few of us left. It's a great feeling getting cash in hand, and it always makes Thursdays worthwhile. Also I never have to run the gauntlet of beggars and syringe-wielding heroin addicts at ATM queues.

I get paid weekly by direct credit to my bank account. I prefer that. I do all my banking online. I couldnt cope with monthly ...too much to budget for LOL....I would have it spent too fast. We get 13 months wages also as our Xmas bonus is an extra months wages.

Bi-Weekly, as is the norm for most people in the US, salaried or otherwise.

Bi-weekly definitely isn't the norm. When I lived in the UK, I observed that wage-and-hour people were paid weekly and salaried people were paid monthly.

That was the case at one of my former jobs. The workshop staff were paid a per-hour wage & were paid weekly, while those of us who worked in the office were on a salary & were paid monthly. Pay day was a big deal back then, we'd all go out to celebrate!

All of the jobs I have held including all three airlines: Bi-weekly.

I used to work at Planet Hollywood in SEA and they had it weekly in a form of a check. Shortly before I left Planet Hollywood for AS, it went to bi-weekly.

Not the only one......

I am a salaried employee and get paid on a weekly basis.

I never really did like getting paid every other week, as at time, it would seem that I would be broke with three or four days left until I got paid. For me, it's a lot easier to budget off of a weekly paycheck than a two week check.

From the cop shop: Every two weeks, on Friday, regardless of the day of the month.

From the Army: Every month on the last day of the said month unless that day falls on a weekend or a holiday at which time the payday is moved to the Friday before the weekend if it would fall on a Saturday or to the Monday following the weekend if it would fall on a Sunday, unless said Friday or Monday is a Holiday at which time the payday is moved to the following Tuesday.

Regular pay is once a month. Pay comes on the first business day of the month, so sometimes it is as late as the third or 4th of the month. Then we get paid our overtime again on the 7th or the closest business day. Also, if we have worked more than a certain number of OT hours (nobody knows the exact figure) we can get paid again on the 22nd. This is pretty rare.

I really really really hate working for the state of Texas mostly for this reason. I could understand the once a month pay if we only got paid once a month. I know we do everything a certain way because some clown in Austin figured out how to save a nickle, but with three possible pay days a month it is pretty stupid to pay once a month.

State of California it was once a month on the last working day of the month, and any overtime would be paid out around the 15th.

I get paid at the end of the month, not too sure what date though, as It's my first month wage from Tui. I received a cheque for my first so-called pay (two days pay for November) and whenever I leave the company I will receive a cheque then. I got paid 24th December although I can't remember my PIN, so will have to go into the bank tomorrow to obtain a new one and change a couple of details. Although I cannot get to my wages unless the branch is open, it means I won't spend it and I can save some for te first time in my life.

Pay periods for Pima County government are bi-weekly. Pay period ends one week and you get your check the next following Friday. Two months a year, the pay cycle ends up with three checks a month. Pay always comes on a Friday, unless you work the evening shift. They get their pay on Thursday.

1st of the month for me. If the 1st is a non-banking day, the money usually shows up in my account on the last banking day before the 1st

When I worked for the university (hourly) it was monthly on the15th, after 1:00 PM PST unless the 15th was a Saturday (in that case it was the 14th after 1:00 PM) or a Sunday (after 9:00 AM on the 16th).

My first job ever checks showed up, signed by that county treasurer the Monday two weeks after the week that the hours were worked in

Once a month on the last business day of the month. It took a while getting used to after living in Canada where I was paid every two weeks. It sure teaches you how to budget, which is a good thing. Bonuses come every three months - however they pay the Jan bonus early so that you get it before Christmas, that was nice this year  Smile

Not particularly. What would be strange would be something like the 20th.

I get paid on the 24th of each month, or the last working day before if it falls on a weekend. December is always 21st or last working day before. Expenses go in twice a month, on the 14th and 30th, which is cool, never more than two weeks to pay off anything on the credit card!

In the UK you usually get paid once a month, either on a set date in the last week, the last Thursday of the month or the last working day (that sucks).

If you are on an hourly rate you generally get paid weekly.
