otc and pay

#1
just a quick check to see if anyone here is in the same situation in that they havent yet been paid coming up to xmas??our contingent was told by hq that it would be in by xmas but with only a couple of days to go and no sign of it......

usually all pay is in by the 20th for me.though last year xmas pay was in for the 15th.whats with the randomness of pay dates?

If you've been in for three years already you may have been "disengaged". You'll need the re-engagement paperwork available from your HQ. Other than that I don't know, I'm sure I've been paid.

im from oxford otc and they owe me about £500 this month and suffice to say i am fairly dependent on it coming in! i am going skiing on the 30th and i dont even own a jacket and salopettes yet! come on OTC, where is our money?

come off it you spongers - you know the money is coming, but if you really need it you should have got a real job too. i was OTC but also a barman. Some people were there because they wanted to soldier and become officers - others because they got pissed and got paid (if only eventually) - i think it is really sad you have made it clear which you are

get with the programme

The thing is we work hard for that money, and should get paid it when its due!
I'm in OTC because I want to join the Army - but I wouldn't be able to do it without the money, because I wouldn't have the time to do my degree, OTC and a paid job! So it gets really frustrating when I put in the hours and hard work, but don't get paid!

Maybe its been diverted to pay for Operational stuff (no only dreaming). Wait till the end of the month like real soldiers, good training for when/if!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you join

It's a fair point. If we put the hours in, then we ought to get the pay for them - and that means the correct amount, in the correct place, when it's due.

It shouldn't be the case that the usual response to pay problems is 'Oh well, you know what OTC/TA/Army pay is like...'

in regard to working a part time job i consider OTC my part time job, i cant stand any other stereotypical student part time jobs. I am intending to join the army also so dont accuse people of just being social members because they get annoyed when they havent been paid, do you think i earned £500 in a month just going to socials?!?!

Meh... I've given up chasing my pay.
Eventually it all gets sorted out.

Be glad you're getting paid in the first place!

The best piece of advice I was told with regard to TA pay was "don't spend it before it comes" ie don't plan where the amount you calculated in your head is going. If you need a reliable income get a normal job as well.

Plus it might broaden your horizons instead being one of those sad twats who eats, shags, drinks, thinks and chats with other OTC folk. "Normal" people tend to be more interesting.

murphy63, kenny_McCormickk et al:

I have just checked my bank account online and have been paid by Glasgow finally.

Kenny: As i am also OUOTC you should have been paid as well.

Unfortunately my pay still does not include the pay from attachment this Summer.

You're not seriously suggesting I associate with civvies are you Cheeks?! :lol:
Actually, I know it sounds really sad, but I don't actually think I've got that many mates outside of the OTC at Uni... Could just be me though! :wink:
