SULPHUR, La. – Stine, Inc. has announced it will pay out an additional “Pat-On-The-Back” payment to associates for their commitment to serving customers and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Full-time associates will receive $250, and part-time associates will receive $125 bonuses on Aug. 14. This is an additional payment as the company had instituted a “Pat-On-The-Back Pay” during the spring, which was a temporary $2 per hour wage increase for all associates that worked during the stay-at-home order from March 24 to May 17.
“The last few months have been trying on our associates,” said Dennis Stine, CEO for Stine Home & Yard. “The Stine family, leadership team, and I are grateful for all of their hard work and dedication to our customers and the communities they serve during these stressful times.”
Stine Home & Yard, the largest Louisiana-owned home improvement company in the state, continues to follow all Centers for Disease Control (CDC) safety guidelines by working diligently to provide a safe environment for both customers and its 800 associates, the company said.
“We continue to work to keep our team members and customers safe by following all of the CDC safety guidelines,” Dennis Stine added. “Our associates have done an incredible job of following these safety guidelines. Their work is incredibly important and we are deeply appreciative for what they do for our communities.”
