The comp day is basically an extra day off in the week that ETLs get off besides their regular to to compensate for working a holiday. The reason ETLs get those is because they are salaried and don't get extra pay like time and a half for holidays.
Nope. That is FACT not opinion. OK, they MAY (and I strongly stress that word) qualify for a bonus, but it's not a hug amount and the store has to make all of it's numbers...and that doesn't happen as often as you may think.
Your ETL's bonus did NOT buy him a fancy car - it would come nowhere near enough to even pay for, in entirely, a cheap, rusty, used car. Now STL bonuses can rack up - our STL pulled down over 6 figures/year and his potential bonus was 1/2 his annual salary, which means at LEAST 50K for his bonus - and it was more as I know he made more than 100K year in salary.
