    I'm retired. Repeat: I have no job. Shortly after receiving my Nexus 5 I had a dental appointment and follow-up a week or so later--with a sedation dentist (HATE dentistry, which is part of why this is so incredibly annoying!). Google apparently decided THAT is where I work, and at random times I get notifications that it's an 11-minute drive "TO WORK" at my dentist's office.

    Maybe I'm stupid, maybe it's all the nitrous, but I can't find where to change this. Help? It's been several months, so the Google Maps history doesn't show the dental visits ... but it sure doesn't want me to forget!

    If it shows up in notifications (pull down the notification bar when it happens), long-press the notification and tap App info and you'll see which app is making the notification. You might have a repeating alarm set.

    That actually could be a Google now notification. When you get that reminder, if it is a Google now reminder there should be an option to say you don't care about reminders to that place. I just had one pop up a few days ago to a local shopping mall so I had to turn it off.

    It's puzzling that it thinks that's your work, though...
    When you go into Google maps, go into settings & pick "Your Places". Is there a Work entry listed? If there is, you should be able to remove it.

    Thank you thank you thank you!!!

    Yes, Google Maps somehow decided that's where I work! Pretty horrific when you realize I have to be sedated to go there! I mean, c'mon! We've all had rotten jobs, but ...

    And the reminders come at such weird times, irregular days ... weird!

    Gone! Now I just hope it remembers to remind me when I have an actual appointment!
