I am very happy with the latest company I am working for. We are allowed to dress down every Fridays. We can come in wearing jeans, rubber shoes and sports shirt so after we go home on a Friday, we can go straight to a movie, a bar or anywhere.How about you, are you allowed to dress down on Fridays?SFC

I dont currently work outside the home. However when i did work in an office for 5 yrs, we had Casual Fridays, but they were randomly decided and if we wanted to wear jeans and sneakers we had to pay 1.00, the money then went towards the charity that our copmany was a huge supporter of (CMN The Childrens Mircale network) Since there were about 1200 employees it was a good chunk to donate.

no place i ever worked at had a dress down day. we always had strict things that was either a uniform provided by the company. or dress up clothes nice pants and nice shirt and shoes, which really stinks because i hate dressing up. so consider your self lucky to have a company thats lets you have a casual day. not alot of business do that anymore

Oh, here in the Philippines? I don't think so, maybe there are company's who allowed that but majority though it's a washed day. Everyone must still wear a formal dress, of course rubber shoes is not allowed!

We are allowed to wear jeans everyday with a formal shirt. Also sports shirts on weekends. Only company sponsored safety shoes to be worn in company premises

We wear uniform from Monday to Friday. But during exams (which usually happens every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday ), our Head allows us to wear any dress or outfit, as long as its decent looking. He also allows our students to wear jeans and shirts on the last day of their exam. Good day!

When I was working, We were in the last company..Friday is free day or wash day for everyone and it was cool for us! It is very convenient to be free once in a week and I agree, we are very comfortable going out right away without going home and change!

Good for you my friend. We're actually allowed to wear smart casual or casual. It depends if we have training to do or not. If I do have to train, I make sure to at least look smart casual or business like. But if it's a no training day, I can wear practically anything I want... (as long as it covers the parts that it's supposed to cover! Lol!)

I am allowed to wear jeans and sneakers to my place of work every day. =D But, I do wear a scrubs top. I work in a veterinary clinic, so dressing up for work would be pointless and costly. Sometimes we get blood on our clothing and a lot of hair and rips and tears. That is why we prefer to wear jeans. The only people that actually wear nice tops are the receptionists and the office people, but that is only because they are not handling the dogs and things like that. I think most of them still wear jeans as bottoms though, just in case.

Yes, we have that rule too. Every Fridays only though. But I notice some officemates of mine, when the next day is a holiday and not a Friday, most of them sport casual wear in the office. Even in my previous work this was the same rule, when it's Friday it's dress down day. I always look forward to Fridays. But my favourite was perhaps the night shift schedule I had years ago during my first job. We could wear jeans everyday.

Well, I work for a hospital. So I have to wear blue scrubs every day that I work. They do, however, allow us to wear crocs (a form of rubber shoes) but thats about it!

When I taught in the high school department of a Catholic university, I had to wear uniform daily. Then when I transfered to an NGO and did community work, I used clothes that the ordinary people in the area wore. That meant jeans or shorts and shirts complete with flip flops. It was more comfortable and convenient plus it served its purpose of making the people there accept me and treat me like one of their own. In my present workplace, I mostly wear skirts or shorts with a blouse or shirt. It's very casual and I love it.
