How long do you wait for your first paycheck in the 'business world'?

I will work two weeks, then I have to wait two weeks for that pay. I'll go a full month before I see anything.

And it's business dress. Not business casual... full business. All of the men are in shirts and ties, all of the women in suits (skirts or pants) or dresses. :o :o :o

I've worn jeans and t-shirts to work for the last 7.5 years. Before that was business causal for 5 years.

Though I have an amount of clothes that borders on obscene (I said borders Demo!) I fall far short on business. A lot of that first paycheck is going to be going to wardrobe... ouch...

Of course, all of my wonderful shoes will finally get to be worn regularly so THAT is great! :)

That is a SUPER job bonus!!! I like working in scrubs, but I do miss the suits and skirts for the fun shoes I got to wear. Danskos just aren't the same. :)

two days. :D :D :D

I got my first check on Wednesday, I'm salary and we get paid on the 15th and last week day of the month. So, since I started on the 13th, I got paid for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday!
