Default Does your employer conduct employee evaluations?

Like the title says, if you're an employee and are evaluated on your work performance regularly, I'm wondering the following:


-what do you do for work?
-how long have you been with your employer?
-how long have you served in your current capacity?
-how often are you evaluated?
-what aspects of your work are evaluated?


Also, for employers, do you evaluate your employees on a regular basis?


As for me,
-police officer
-23 years with employer
-23 years in patrol
-every 90 days
-all aspects of work performance


Thanks in advance.

Our boss had us do our own because evidently performance was not related to pay.

As a small business (7 employees), we didn't have a formal evaluation process until this June, when I implemented an annual performance review and a semi annual check in. Before, pay increases, bonuses, and informal review were sporadic, which is probably fine for a tiny company, but as we have grown, the need for something formal increases. We also implemented job descriptions, org chart, etc.

The way we went about it was to have the employees do their own reviews and do an anonymous review of the company. We then went over their reviews with them, and set goals for the coming year. We also gave everyone a merit increase and a bonus so it was a time everyone looks forward to rather than dreads. It was received very positively and made me feel better as an owner/boss that we have some defined organizational structure that allows for future growth.

Years ago, it's my manager's responsibilities to write my eval once a year. Now I have to write one twice a year for him/her. It's a joke.

I'm an analyst for a natural gas utility company. 6 years with this company 2 or 3 in my current position. We have performance reviews once a year to review how we have done. We have various goals and such for the year so generally it's based on how we performed based on expectations set at last years reciew. Annual raise is based upon this review.

When I worked at Medium size Corp (Fortune 30) we did them annually. When I moved on to a top 10 Corporation - we do them twice a year.

I have 150 employees. We have an annual evaluation on each one plus anytime anyone is promoted or transferred (there's also one at the end of the 90 day probation to see if they stay). The employee does a self evaluation on 15 points plus comments, one on strengths and one on weaknesses/areas that need improvement and their manager does the same one. Both are submitted to upper management with the local managers recommendations. After approval the local manager sits down with the employee and reviews every point.

Officially all aspects are evaluated, in reality the only thing that moves the meter on bonus size are outstanding results.

We also are required to participate in annual employer evaluations. It used to be that as soon as the results were published we had a meeting to go over how satisfied the employee base was, interestingly management has been very quite the past few years on these survey results.

Interesting to see a number of employee surveys/evaluations of management.

It is based on a personal goal evaluation you fill out every January and the annual raise you receive is based on your performance on the eval. Eval is performed by immediate Supv. You fall into 1 of 3 categories which dictates your percentage of increase. You are either unsat, marginal or exceeds.

I had some that did and some that didn't. They were usually annually. I worked for a company for 17 years and I only got evaluated when the company wanted to cut my pay which was 3X. I surpassed all of the company rules and grew my territory every year. You would think I should get a raise every year but I would get a pay cut because I was making to much money!

I had 17 people that worked for me in 1 job and I had to review each of them with a very complicated written evaluation every 6 months. I absolutely hated doing them. The people that worked for me were young people that did warehouse work for minimum wage. Most of them didn't care about their job and did the bare minimum to get by. How was I supposed to come up with a different and useful evaluation every 6 months?

Most of my time was trying to make sure I had enough people to cover everything day after day. I have heard every excuse why they couldn't make it to work.

We get a performance review once a year with different criteria.
Also annually we grade the company. Bonus in March raise in April. My end of year review has a lot to do with bonus. We now have to write our own mid year review and I just put on mine "Walks on water" cause that's what u need to do to get more then the standard raise or bonus.
No way I can complain...well I can but I'm still pretty lucky
