Can only do that if we're closed... yet we can choose which radio station is on for the music in the store

I would argue that there is a lot of us out here that are able to function a lot better when we have tunes in our ears. My question is does your job allow you to listen to music while you work? Mines doesn't and its annoying because I have no motivation to do it since it's so boring, and I can even't listen to music to liven things. I need a new job :(


I work in a warehouse so I can if I want to, it's nice, helps make the day go by for me on slower days. I usually keep one ear bud out though in case someone needs to tell me something or needs help.

I have the luxury. I keep this little guy attached to my phone and play music. We would usually have a radio, but I turn that shit off. Who listens to the radio anymore?

I worked at a vet clinic this past summer and we were allowed to play music in the treatment room as long as it couldn't be heard in the appointment rooms or waiting area. I think as long as it isn't disruptive it should be fine.

I've been doing it for years without being sacked. Fuck being proper.

As long as it's appropriate for the environment and not disruptive/too loud, I don't see why not. No headphones or earbuds, though.

And, yes, it also depends on your job. If you're a marine and you're in enemy territory, you should not listen to music. If you're a music producer, don't listen to other people's music while you're on the set and trying to record and edit stuff. Ridiculous example but you get the idea.

Not when your work requires attending to customers and the customers end up having to wave a hand in front of your face to get your attention. (This happened to us last night at a store we went to)

Yes of course it depends on the job. On the other hand, to make it more simpler. As long as listening to music does not affect much the employee's work performance negatively. Then it's okay to listen to music sometimes while working. If not, then you shouldn't or it shouldn't be allowed.

Only if they can get everyone in their department to do a spontaneous professionally choreographed song and dance number to the song they are attempting to listen to.

This is one of many reasons people do not want to see me in a management position.

To parrot most of the others, it depends on the job. If you're a cashier, o work in a supermarket, stacking shelves or something like that, then you're going to be interacting with customers, so it'd probably be a bad idea to be listening to music. But if you work in an office, and don't really need that much interaction with others, then why not be allowed to listen to music to help you through the long day?

And if you have great music taste, then play that shit out loud and crank it up to 11!

Depends on what you do for work. People I work with listen to music all the time, as it's a loud work place anyways.

I don't though.

I work at a container depot/facility. I specifically work in repairing, modifying and upgrading shipping containers. We blast the radio or we can even play our own music from our phones. Everyone even sings along to the songs sometimes haha!

Depends on the job. Even at fast food restaurants, you have to listen and interact with people. We do have a radio that plays at my work, but your aren't allowed to wear headphones.
