Is it possible to ask for a portion of signing bonus?

Just have them direct deposit the bonus into my account and I can give you the portion you want


I think I speak for everyone where when I ask...WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT OP!?


Sounds like he wants his bonus check early so he can make rent


you'll get the entire bonus included in your first or second paycheck and there's no chance of getting it any sooner


like you want less than they offered..?

Worried about the payback if you leave early?

No not at all. I'm a company man for sure.

OP when why? Also, be wary of being a company man with a large firm. Be a results man (or woman), and be able to create your own success story.

* THEN why (try and take less money)?

Very true. And I need a portion for potential rent payments if my first paycheck isn't enough


I think that's called, "Welcome to adulthood, bud." Ask a parent or a friend to spot you if you didn't plan ahead, just pay them back in two weeks.

If you need your bonus money to pay rent you may want to reconsider where you are living
