Compensation & Getting Paid¶
X Studios pays all full-time employees on a bi-weekly basis (i.e. every two weeks) on Friday. Paychecks are deposited via direct deposit into your bank account to keep things simple.
To update your direct deposit banking information, please log into The Hub at: https://xstu.io/hr
If an error has occurred with respect to pay rate, hours worked, or incorrect allocation of time, the employee is responsible for notifying Accounting regarding any error immediately by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every effort is made to avoid errors in an employee’s paycheck including improper deductions. If an employee believes an error has been made in a paycheck or an improper deduction has been made from the paycheck, employees should report it to Accounting immediately in writing; you can e-mail email@example.com.
Overtime & Reimbursements¶
If the need for overtime for Non-Exempt Hourly employees arises (hours worked in excess of 43+ hours a work week), it will be on a volunteer-basis first.
Due to the nature of the Company’s business, if mandatory Overtime is required, there is much flexibility with working hours that can be arranged with Management. Overtime will be paid at a rate of 1.5 times the regular rate OR the ability to charge back overtime as additional Paid Time Off (PTO). This begins at hour 43 of a typical work week
Overtime Pay Out: Choose to be paid at a rate of 1.5 (time and a half) times the Team’s regular rate. This amount is added to the next paycheck.
PTO Accrual: Choose to have your overtime credited back as Personal Time Off. Each Overtime hour is credited as +1.0 hour of PTO.

To ensure that you perform your job to the best of your abilities, it is important that you be recognized for good performance and that you receive appropriate suggestions for improvement when necessary. Consistent with this goal, your performance will be evaluated by your Management on an ongoing basis. You may also receive periodic written evaluations of your performance.
All written performance reviews will be based on your overall performance in relation to your job responsibilities and will also take into account your conduct, demeanor, and record of attendance and tardiness. Written evaluations are stored in The Hub.
In addition to the regular performance evaluations described above, special written performance evaluations may be conducted by your Management at any time to advise you of the existence of performance or disciplinary concerns.
