was just curious how often people are paid. do you prefer being paid a certain way? is it more convenient to pay all the bills at once if you get paid monthly or do you find it easier to spread it out a bit with being paid weekly?

I get paid semi-monthly, which isn't an option on your poll.

1st and 15th of every month, or the business day before if it isn't a business day.

Bi-weekly means once every two weeks; i.e. 26 pay period per year.

Semi-monthly means 24 pay periods per year.

I don't care how often they pay me as long as they pay me. I've been paid monthly before and that was cool too.

I get paid biweekly. I'd rather be paid weekly, or even daily. It should be in my pocket, not theirs, once I've earned it. But practically speaking, it doesn't really matter.

That pretty much sums up what I was going to say.

I am weekly and Laeeq is bi-weekly (every 2 weeks).

I got paid twice a month (on 15th & on 30th) or business day before if those dates is on weekend/holiday. He got paid weekly.

I prefer monthly because thats how I got paid before - just used to it.

this one nanny job I had I got paid $500 on the 15th and $500 on the 30th regardless of how many days or hours I worked.... and then I got the month of July off with full pay.. and then they would give me @ a $500 bonus at Christmas...

I loved that job and not just because of the money but I felt like I was part of the family.. it almost felt weird getting paid....

Monthly.

I dont work anymore.


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

The nice thing about biweekly as opposed to semi-monthly (IMO) is that you budget according to 2 paychecks a month, and then 2 months a year you get a "bonus" paycheck!

Yeah aren't those "bonus" checks nice!!!!!!

I get paid biweekly btw.

Gary gets paid weekly.
