So, I've recently been job hunting (nothing major, just your stereotypical teenager job. Fastfood joints, etc.) and there's not that many places hiring in my area. I don't have my license so I can't drive anywhere for a job, so I'm pretty much limited to walking distance.

My dad seems to think I can't get a job because of my long hair (even though there are limited places to work and hundreds of teens trying to get jobs in the area). I told him that my friend has long hair and has a job at Arby's, but he still seems to think that it's because of my long hair.

So, Pitmonkeys, any of you have long hair and have troubles getting a job?

Prejudice plays a decent role in the hiring process. Especially for teenagers.

just look clean and presentable, keep that hair in a pony tail and wash it too. hmmmm actually im in the same exact spot as you, looking for a job specifically fast food, i have long hair, parents used to say the same stuff, but its not true about the hair, believe me, parents just say that stuff cause they dont like the long hair.

Put it in a pony tail and you're good.


Yup. If it's REALLY long tuck it into your shirt or something if you're working with food.

In my area long hair definitely makes it harder to find a job. And I'd have to say in general having long hair makes it harder to find a job.

I agree with your dad, it's your hair.

Edit: While I had long hair I couldn't get a job. The day I cut it I got a job. Whether or not this proves anything, I don't know. LOL!

I had long hair for a long time and had a few jobs. I work with people now who have long hair. Though not in fast food... I did have long hair when I worked at KFC, though, a few years ago.

Interesting question...

Well, do you look clean and presentable with your long hair?
Or are you too "rock n' fookin' roll" for that?

I dunno. Probably not actually, it hangs in front of my face (I want it to do that because I used to have really bad acne and am temporarily scarred from it... it hides the blemishes) =\.

You were right, I did post this a while ago. But the other thread was somewhat different.
