    Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!

    I wanted to get y'alls thoughts on a couple of things:
    1. Do you have a particular day of the week you chose as your payday or is it just every 2 weeks on a Friday? If not, why the different day of the week?
    2. How do you deal with in-house tips? I've a pickup and delivery joint. Drivers get their delivery fee and keep all tips every night. I haven't figured out a good way to divvy up in-house tips.

    Thanks!

    I pay every second Thursday. The cutoff is the previous Friday. I chose this method because there is a legislated maximum number of days from cutoff to payday. By paying on Thursdays the bank is not as busy for the employees to deal with their needs.

    In house tips are pooled and about 4 times a year I distribute the tips based on total hours worked by all employees. Each employee get the percentage of tip money compared to the percentage of the total hours they have worked.

    Our inside employees split the cash tips each night. Once when the early people leave and again at the end of the night.

    CC tips for carryout are split by inside hours worked for the pay period and put on the paycheck.

    We split tips among in store hours worked monthly. Based on percentage of hours worked like above.
