When the alarm went off for about a thousand employees at Titan International, Inc. Friday, they were excited to get to work.
It was Christmas bonus day.
Every year, the company has a little fun handing out the bonuses.
This year, each employee got a check, plus 200 dollars in two dollar bills.
The company president says this is one way Titan can give a pat on the back to its employees for the company's success.
The employees get a kick out of it, too.
"We want to recognize them every year. They are the people who make this company what it is today, so this is our way of saying thank you," President Dave Salen said.
"Oh. It's completely awesome because my old job all I got was a turkey for the last eight years. So, this is really pretty cool," employee Troy Grotz said.
In the past, a part of the bonus has been a bag of dollar coins.
