    $5. It was a deferred compensation check. Yes, Virginia, deferred compensation does exist.  
     
    I was maybe hoping for the money from the recent settlement deal, which I wager will be a lot more than $5 after taxes, but I guess that won't come until after Christmas. I am always curious, what the whole point behind deferred compensation was exactly? Was it intended as an early attempt at a retirement plan before 401ks became popular in America? I can't seem to find my original employee handbook anymore, since I quit Fry's, but I don't recall the handbook really going into a lot of detail about how it was calculated. I know that I had earned a measily ~$100 in deferred compensation according to a manager when I quit so I suppose I will see additional checks in coming years for ~$5, but the amount of money involved is so small I wouldn't worry too much if I don't see the remaining deferred compensation.  
     
    It is nice to know though that deferred compensation is real. Has anyone else seen these checks and if so how much money was the check made out for?

    Deferred compensation is optional. Fry's offers deferred compensation. I don't think its right to take away from my sales commission to pay off other employees who do nothing or do not even work for Frys anymore.  
     
    What's worse is they pay so little for so much work.

    I am not sure if i am getting information right from a friend of mine. It seems he was 'terminated' in march , went into frys to sign the paper for his "no show no call", now he says he has 90 days and can re-apply at frys for employment in june 2009. Could this be correct?? Does frys often give their employees
    'second chances" when it comes to terminations?? thanks

    $1400?  
     
    I can only assume that was an annual check.  
    I thought it was paid monthly.
