My first job is in ages and they told me 2 weeks every other Friday is payday so would that be today or on the 19th?
aafes not ages
No way to know which Friday is payday. You should have asked. Ask next time you are in at work.
no idea without knowing when the last payday for them was – you could have started work there in the middle of a 2 week pay cycle – ask your BOSS obviously
for Aug every other Friday could be the Aug 6, and 19th
Aug 13 and 27
Most places pay you on the Friday following the current pay period. Example, the current pay period is from the 1st to the 14th. You'll be paid on the 21st. That gives them a week following the current pay period to review work hours, vacation/sick time taken, overtime, etc. for ALL employees. Your next pay period would be the 15th to the 29th with a pay date of the 5th of the following month.
If you start work on week into the current pay period, you'll only be paid for 1 week's work because you only worked 1/2 of the current pay period.
It could be either one. Theypay everyone on the same day. So it's two weeks after the last time that they paid everyone else. Ask someone else when they were last paid, and add 14 days.
There is no way to know.. if they pay every other Friday, they could pay today (12th) or they could pay 19th. Ask them !
It will be Aug 12th and 26th or Aug 5th, 19th and Sept. 2nd.
If the 19th is aFriday then yes.
