Weird Workplace Suggestions

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hiring managers nationwide have gotten some pretty weird tips in the office suggestion box.

Careerbuilder.com recently asked hiring managers to recall the most bizarre workplace suggestions they’ve ever received from employees.

One worker recommended adding a tanning bed to the break room while another pushed for beer in the vending machine.

Other unusual requests include...

  • Institute “bikini Fridays.”

  • Allow people to change clothes in their cubicles.

  • Create a special smoking area for medical marijuana.

  • Make the HR person wear nicer shoes.

  • Have jail time covered under family medical leave.

    One employee asked for more time off to pursue a side career as a clown, another requested to only work during daylight hours because they were afraid of the dark, and one guy wanted to replace his desk with a futon so he could lay down while working.
