Why do companies allow their employees to smoke at the front of the business?

Why do places of business allow their employees to take their smoke break outside the front door of the business?  Forcing me to walk through a wall of smoke to enter?

Makes me crazy. I vow to complain to the company or corporate the next time this happens.

 I dont blame you. I have a Son with severe asthma and this is one of my pet peeves. Especially at a hospital. Here its smoke free but people stand right at the door smoking. When i am taking my Son in with a asthma attack the last thing he needs is to walk through a cloud of smoke.

Our employees are not allowed to smoke on the property.

This would be a good question for the business your speaking about. 

Most businesses here in MN do not allow you to and you must be out at least 30ft front he door.  Not that it's a huge difference.  Some also have differnt  smoking areas.  Like where I work you have to go up to 2nd floor of the parking ramp and there is a bench off in the corner.

I haven't figured that out either! I have asthma and cigarette smoke dies me really bad. Now it is hard for me to go places because the employees are smoking at the front entrance. At walmart the employees get an attitude if you even look at them. SMH

I think it looks trashy as well.  I won't walk through cigarette smoke to go into a place.

It's so unprofessional and I hate it more when I have kids with me. I don't want to subject them to smoke cuz your employee can't smoke in the back or out of the way of the public.

I am completley with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Walmart is horrible about this!!!  I have even encountered it at Target. Personally I do not feel they should smoke on the premise or anywhere near customers!! It drives me nuts too when they do it in the front of hospitals or medical buildings. UGH!

A lot of companies here do not allow it.
