- Showers at work – how bad are yours?
13 shower rooms each with shower, sink, changing area and industrial pink shower gel.
Free to use fresh cotton towels every morning.
Hair drying and make-up area (for the ladyshapes).
Attended during peak times by the mop lady.
I would have probably left my job years ago but for the excellent facilites.Posted 4 years agomindmap3Member
Ours is pretty grotty – there is only one that didn’t get used for ages until Nottingham introduced the parking levy. It now gets used quite a lot but is a bit grim…people leave stuff in there to ‘dry’ which seems a bit off to me.
I’m going to have to brave it when I start riding in.Posted 4 years agoFunkyDuncMember
Ours is ace. I’d pop to wilkos and grab some bits to give it a spruce up. 2 minutes work for a much nicer morning.
What like some quick drying plaster, and some thing to seal the walls?
Before coming a public servant I had been used to nice, clean, modern showers as like in some of the pics above 🙂
It was actually my work colleagues who were disgusted when I showed them the pictures… I’ll put up with it, just cant imagine that work are happy to have wet soggy walls, with water potentially working its way through to the floor below.Posted 4 years agorobnorthcottMember
Shower for me is usually the rain on the way in. On the occasional day when it’s hot and dry there’s a hand basin in the loo and a can of smelly stuff. Mind you, my commute is less than 10 miles by the most direct (road) route and mostly down hill on the way in, so I don’t tend to get too manky.
I think I’ve only ever worked at one place that had a shower – do people consider it the norm these days?Posted 4 years agorobnorthcottMember
I wasn’t suggesting you shouldn’t make use of it if it’s there… just genuinely wondering if it was common to have showers at work. I’ve mostly worked at small companies, but I’d imagine the bigger organisations are more likely to have such facilities (the one I worked at that had showers was Rolls-Royce, everywhere else just loos and basins).Posted 4 years agojp-t853Member
My problem is that the work showers are really lovely with polished tiles everywhere. They put my home bathroom to shame.
I am the only person who uses them so I have to be careful how I take my socks off so that I don’t get fluff everywhere and generally leave everything spotless.Posted 4 years ago
