So i have a part-time job. i get paid weekly, thursday nights. This week i only worked 12 hours so i should have gotten paid like $55 ( ETA- thats 55 after taxes, i make 7.75 p/h). I check my account this morning and they gave me $195 Shocked. What should i do? I know ratchet azz BHM gonna be like "keep that ish" but i dont want to some how get in trouble. I think my pay has been switched with someone else.

My options-

-Tell a manager about the problem, be a honest person.
-Keep that ishCool, i leaning strong towards this one.
- Maybe my pay got switched with someone else, and where i work its hard to get paid that much. What if the other person gets my measly check, tells management, they find it was switched with me, i look bad because i didnt say anything. Its a seasonal job and im trying to get kept after the holidays, i dont want to look bad already.
-Maybe it was a keystroke mistake and everybody got paid correctly, i just got a nice bonus by mistake and no one will ever find outCool

what should i do???

If you want to save your job, you will tell them because they will find out eventually.

Tell them, hun. Plus being honest makes you look great in their eyes!

55/12=like 4.50. That's all you get paid an hour? If you need the money badly then keep it, you can always say you didn't know. If you don't need the money tell them.

Im not judging. The point I was making is maybe she supposed to make more that 55 for that week and just added it up wrong. Isnt the hourly rate for waitresses like 2 something.

Tell your manager ASAP.  Use some logic on this one--thinking you can pull one over on your employers--who have accountants who will eventually go over their pay roll for tax purposes, is not a good idea at all.  Be honest so you can remain employable.  Nobody likes a thief.

Tell them. I was pad an extra 5hrs one time and my manager said " keep it you deserve it". So it'll be better to just tell and your conscience will be clear.

Tell them now and don't spend a dime. It's more then likely a payroll error and it will be caught once numbers don't balance. You didn't earn it so you know what you need to do..lol.

Keep the money in your account but don't spend it.they may or may not notice it later. I wouldn't say anything and have to give it back if they were never gonna find out...but I wouldn't spend it and look like the ass because they know u know that sh*t wasn't yours. So sit on the money for a while and see if they ever say anything. If they do, act surprised and cooperate with them
