|Was there anything else noteworthy about your shower experience?:||Actually, the shower was
assigned by the lady janitor in the back.
There were places in the room where it could have been cleaner.
When the fan was on, the shower curtain billowed in on the person in the shower.
There were two sets of electrical sockets: an upper set for use by the fan and a lower set. The upper set did not work at all even though I tried resetting the GFCI button. I had to plug the fan into one of the two sockets in the lower set to get it to work.
The towel hooks were on the wall outside the shower stall, but too far away to reach from inside the stall and definitely too high for shorter users.
|Based on your personal expectations, what grade would you give to this shower facility and your shower experience today (A+ is best; F- is worst)?:||B|
|Based on your experience today, would you recommend this shower facility to other professional drivers?:||Maybe|
|Additional comments::||When I came back in to get a
shower, there was
confusion at the fuel desk as to the fuel receipts which were in at
least 3 places. However, I finally found my receipt.
Flying J would do well to have automatically assigned showers instead of drivers having to hunt for the janitor to get an assignment.
