I'm 54 and just started yet another new job. I got laid off from the last two. It's so unlikely that I'll ever have the same job for 20 years.

I have driven the same car for 22 years, though.

More or less what my work does, its a NP charity so we can't afford to give out things. But I do get a rise every year granted its rather small, I'm a higher up BTW.

The value of a $400 gift card depends on the type of work, full time vs. part time, local vs. national/international company, and whether it was authorized by the store or corporate or what. $400 for 20 years still amounts to $20/yr. You could have found that much in your couch in that time.

I'd take that. Some places give you mug or a worthless plaque.

For my 5 year anniversary I got to pick from a catalog. Most of the choices were junk but I ended up going with a wall clock. It was still junk but I hung it up in my cubicle to class the place up a bit.

But we also get gift cards throughout the year through the employee reward program.

Barely out of college and still trying to get my foot in the corporate ladder.....

wow 20 years, i'm just about to hit 10 years. we get 3 extra off days which is great, but nothing else. Some better tech companies even get a 30 day 'recharge' for every 5 years of service.

Not bad, you should give them money for keeping you around for so long.

Currently at home with a burnout. To top it off had to go to hospital with kidneystones. All that isn't as bad as not being able to get a rtx 3080 for msrp

On my 10th anniversary, I was awarded a blackout shift. It meant that I could place that award on a day I didn't want to be scheduled. Plus, I had choice for either a $10 voucher for the cafeteria or a pair of movie tickets. That's about it. They know how to make a person feel really swell.

All I received was a nicely printed years of service paper and a plastic pin. Companies wonder why the younger generation a are not loyal to a company any longer and this is why. They grew up watching their caretakers being taken advantage of...

May the Schwartz be with you!

Hey at least you got to keep your job.  I hit my 21yr mark and got laid off last year at 50yo.  Was unemployed for 8 mos but now gainfully employed again thank God!
