    Ours is fine, we've got a wee room with a microwave and a big table for food, and a smokers/staff room

    I've got a 2 hour break between shifts, and the chairs are comfy enough to stretch out and sleep.

    Working for a big company has it's benefits :thumb:

    My staff room is a clock room :-/ ...filled with peoples' coats funnily enough, a few chairs and junk.

    I use to love the staff room in this nursery I use to work in. Was like our own trendy, huge chill out room with our own microwave, fridge and radio. A few sofas for us to crash on then a couple tables for people to eat at. No smokers allowed; so didn't have any yucky stale smell left in it :-/
    Suppose you would need a room like that to keep you sane when working there. Especially with having kids screaming in your ear 8 hours a day.

    shit.

    there are two fridges between about 30 of us, but the bigger one smells all wrong, and the smaller one is about 5 cm squared.

    there's a microwave, but it inexplicably smells of curry and has pube-looking hairs in.

    and someone steals things from the fridge and uses the tea towel to wipe the floor. nice.

    We don't have a staff room or office kitchen. There is the office. But it's just a mess.

    We all just tend to play in the whole building. :D

    ive had shite staff rooms where ive worked one was non existant in a resturant we had to jsut go sit out the back,
    other was worse when i worked on a fishfarm so it was basically a shed in the middle of a loch,
    and the other was when i worked in a fish market and that was basically a space on the concrete for a cup of tea at break time

    all in all pretty shite

    Our is pretty good. Fridges, dishwasher, microwave, vending machines a couple of PC's some cool chairs and a pool table. Only shame is its an open plan office so you feel like your still in the office on break.

    Our staff canteen is all nice and everything, with 3 vending machines, and the stuff inside is at a reduced price 2 microwaves and a kettle, and there is an independant catering company in there and they sell hot food untill 7 O'clock, there is a TV and newspapers, and because tesco are oh so kind you get a free cup of tea or coffee :p
    There is also a room on the side with comfy chairs for the smokers,I don't see why they get the privalige of the comfy chairs but still :p Walking in to that room you get completely smoke boxed.
    And another room on the side with a gambling machine, a pool table a football game and some other randomised arcade style game in it.

    ours is shit compared to most tesco'ses, no pool table or smokers room (so we have to stand in the cold outside), there only 2 tables and not enough chairs because they all break!

    Cant complain tho, still got 2 vending machines with reduced stuff in, free tea, coffee and toast, a TV and 3 papers every day. Best of all our security guard brought in his old megadrive so we playing columns and sonic on it all the time.

    its small but theres a really nice atomosphere there dinner times, and every1 knows each other in the store so its better.
