    Default Incentive=Dedicated Continued

    I worked for a company that supposedly had a bone us program based on footage billed. The higher ups touted this as being great and we would see ALL KINDS of extra money.
    Problem was NO ONE IN THE OFFICE WAS KEEPING TRACK. Which we (in the field) found out when we started getting DAILY phone calls about production. You know, the 'Why has your completed tickets dropped from 30 to 15', 'Why were you on a job for an hour?' questions. Of course they weren't looking at the ACTUAL tickets, just numbers.
    We had a slew of long drawn out road jobs come in and the way the crews on site were working WE HAD TO BE THERE.
    So we started asking questions about our 'Footage Billed Bonus Program'. NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON could give us an answer, no one from the top down. It was BULLSH*T from the start, just a typical move to make us do more without anything.

    and i believe someone means well with these bone-us programs..........but actions never speak louder than words...........it's always talk talk talk about bone-us and the day it is to be paid out................it gets lost in the paperwork..............and a year later when you lay down to quit because you've had enough they say they'll pay the bone-us you deserve and a couple of days later you find out the dm has been replaced and the old bone-us program is done away with..........
    wise men talk because they have something to say and fools because they have to say something....plato
