My director came in with a card and a box of delicious chocolates for me and the clerk in my group.

I guess I should thank his wife for reminding him, lol.

My coworker/ 33% supervisor gave me a card... so did the other admin in the building. Beyond that, it's just another day.

For the first few years I worked here they took me for lunch.
Last year was nothing. This year looks like nothing, either. It can happen before the week is over but I'm not holding my breath.

We have 4 AA's in our office and I was very happy on how our office treated them (I've never seen anyone actually recognize it!). They got cards, gift cards, and taken out for a special team lunch.

One of our Montreal guys sent me and a couple other admins chocolates and a card. It was really nice!

My office hasn't done anything... they usually do something, but not this year, I guess.

AND they know about the chocolates... so it's not like they forgot.

I got a card.

In past years, I always got flowers and a gift card or a gift basket. Ever since another admin was added...I get a card. tongueold

I work at a law firm and we get spoiled. This year, we got bagels and cream cheese for breakfast and a chocolate fountain with tons of fruit, cream puffs, pretzels, etc. for dipping at lunch.

We received $50 Visa gift cards from the partners and there were prize draws all day (Keurigs, crock pots, Swarovski necklaces, wine, gift cards). I didn't win any of the draws this year but I won a couple bottles of wine last year.

I got nothing...which sucks

I have done two jobs this year, and I didn't even get acknowledged yest. I am here(knock on wood)pretty much everyday, and work my [censored] off. Yeah I get paid...but when I look around my office. All the guys I work with get free crap/taken out to lunch/days off (paid) to golf etc and I get none of that...they created yest. so people like me can feel like they are appreciated. I can tell you today, I don't feel appreciated. Here I am again, covering for the receptionist (who was just hired) who is sick today....I can't get my work done because one of the guys needed her to do something and have it finished today!

I am not asking for a gift etc All I was asking for is a thank you for all my hard work!

My admin people have told me they don't want anything. I think there's some sort of stigma and they don't want to be seen as "admin"
