I work in a sizable downtown building that is shared by a number of different companies that all lease office space here.
My employer is a building supply dealer, and our office is just a regional location for handling shopper service claims with our customers.
We don’t see any product or transport any orders, we’re basically a glorified call center for clients in this identifiable state. Right down the hall from us is a house insurance dealer, and next to them is a dentist’s office. Since we’re on the third floor, we don’t see nearly as much foot traffic in the hallways around here like you do on the various lower floors. However, that recently changed when a new corporation moved in nextdoor. It’s a commercial bee removal service and it’s their central hub. There are workers and exterminators coming and going all day long, creating lots of noise in the entire building. In the past I had almost complete peace and quiet while working my shift, but now I find myself reaching for our headphones so I can focus on our jobs. I wouldn’t normally expect to see a commercial bee removal service or any kind of extermination corporation move their company into a shared office building, but you learn something new everyday. I just wish the exterminators were more respectful about their noise whenever they’re walking through the hallways in this building, that way I might get my normal job performance back. I don’t even care for exterminators to begin with because of the chemicals used to eradicate pests, but they’re arguably a honestly pressing company for countless reasons.
