    At least your uniform isn't an ill fitting skirt which comes up to half way up your stomach and half down your calves.. makes your hips look HUGE and is falling to pieces. Also i don't suit the red top which looks like a p.e top i used to wear in high school.

    i currently work in a bar, that's just a black t shirt and jeans and trainers, quite cool

    before that i worked at homebase. green/orange tops, and black combats (luckily i was employed just after they phased out the bright green combats )

    before that i worked at domino's, so that was khaki trousers, with a khaki dominos-branded belt, a blue and red dominos branded polo shirt, and a khaki dominos branded baseball cap. oh, and a bright red apron. worst. uniform. evAr.

    before that i was at boots, which was just black trousers, white long sleeved shirt and a weird blue-patterned tie...

    I work in Boots and we have to wear a white nurses type top with blue edging and buttons down the front. its a horrible polyester thing which is too long and tight to move around in and being pure white its soooo hard to keep cleen, after a while it jst looks grubby and stained. we do get these black tabards to wear on top but there are never enough and we're only allowed to wear them for certain jobs and they've got the cheak to give us into trouble if we dont look spick'n'span! :mad: We do get to wear black trousers now though but it used to be an awful ankle-length stripey skirt in the same polyester material. Anyone else work in Boots and detest the uniform? I heard were getting new ones soon so fingers crossed.

    Why not just ask a manager to order some more tabards. I work at Waitrose and we have all got a tabard each!!!!

    i could ask for more tabards but we're only allowed to wear them in the back shop for sorting deliveries and packing trolleys and not when we're on the floor stacking shelves/cleaning or on check outs which can be jst as dirty jobs. Another problem is name badges 'must be visible at all times' and its a hastle to keep switching it over every time you put on or take off a tabard.

    Presumably if you get a tabard each, its part of your own uniform and u are expected to wear it at all times. At Boots its jst an extra which your not allowed to wear all the time.

    We have been told we can only wear them at certain times (never on the shopfloor) and that this was company policy. Does everyone in your local Boots wear them all the time? Perhaps they have a different uniform from us altogether. :confused:

    Nope they wear the same uniform as you and they seem to wear them on the shopfloor, tills, cleaning, stacking shelfs. They should provide you with the correct ppe to do the job cleaning could damage your uniform so therefore they should let you wear a tabard to protect your uniform.
